Smart Vehicle Diagnostics LLC, a creator of unique diagnostic tools for automobiles, trucks and powersports vehicles, and DIAGNOSTICA LLC, an innovative diagnostic equipment company, have announced the availability of Motorscan smartphone diagnostics adapters for Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Featuring a patent-pending design, Motorscan adapters are the first devices of their kind. The tiny plug and play adapters work on the majority of Harley-Davidson motorcycles manufactured from 2001 to 2015. Future software updates will extend the compatibility to newer models. The free smartphone app is available for Android phones and iPhones.
The Motorscan adapter plugs into a motorcycle’s diagnostic port and can be left there indefinitely. Using the Motorscan app, a bike owner can read trouble codes and conditions with detailed descriptions, clear the check engine light, access various bike systems, from the electronic control unit (ECU) to the dashboard, to see data parameters, view virtual gauges, and more. Bike owners can easily save diagnostic reports and email them to their mechanics with a touch of a button.
“We created the Motorscan OBD adapter so that Harley-Davidson owners can easily diagnose their bikes themselves and see what is wrong if the check engine light comes on,” said Alex Leonov, Managing Partner at Smart Vehicle Diagnostics LLC. “You can save time and money on unnecessary shop visits, but you will also know when you actually must visit your mechanic.”
Alex Leonov added: “Motorscan essentially turns your smartphone into a powerful diagnostic tool. A lot of diagnostic tools are bulky, but we wanted to make a tool that can be left in a bike and used every day. We ended up reinventing the OBD adapter when we created the world’s smallest diagnostic device for powersports with a patent-pending design that is guaranteed to fit snugly into a bike’s diagnostic port. To ensure software compatibility with a wide range of Harley-Davidson models, we partnered with EOS Srl, makers of professional motorcycle diagnostics equipment. The end result is an easy-to-use tool to monitor your bike’s health daily.”
There are two types of adapters available. The MSDKHD4 4-pin adapter is compatible with older models with Delphi engine control units and 4-pin J1850 OBD connectors. The MSDKHD6 6-pin adapter works with most of the newer CAN-Bus Harley-Davidson bikes with 6-pin OBD connectors. You can check a motorcycle’s compatibility at https://motorscantools.com.
Motorscan is a plug and play device. To start, install the Motorscan app on a smartphone. Then plug the Motorscan adapter into the bike’s OBD data link connector, which is usually located under the seat or on the side. Make sure the bike is unlocked. Turn the ignition on and put the RUN switch into RUN position. Turn on Bluetooth on the phone. After launching, the app will find the adapter automatically. Complete a quick registration form to begin to diagnose the bike.
