Designed for the motorcycle industry, the all-new P1000 diagnostic scan tool from Snap-on includes features that give technicians the edge. Take on more jobs with access to comprehensive OEM-specific bike coverage for nine domestic, Asian and European makes as far back as 2000, including Harley-Davidson, BMW, Victory, Indian, Ducati, Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki and Suzuki.
“We’ve taken the Snap-on quality and expertise that technicians already know and trust and created a new diagnostic scan tool for motorcycles, engineered to help technicians take on diagnostic jobs confidently,” said Helen Cox, senior marketing manager, Snap-on Diagnostics. “As motorcycles have become more complex, there was a market need for a scan tool that would allow technicians to be ready for any challenge that came their way. The P1000 puts full throttle diagnostics right in their hands.”
The P1000 provides complete diagnostics in one tool, including fault codes to identify the problem as well as live data graphing to pinpoint the issue. With functional tests, technicians can accelerate maintenance tasks such as brake bleeding, service light reset, compression tests and fuel tank drain. Relearns and adaptations enable technicians to get component problems fixed and get the bike back on the road.
Everything about the P1000 is fast so it can keep up with the needs of the repair shop. It features auto ID that reads the VIN and saves time locating the vehicle on the tool. The embedded SMX operating system ensures a quick diagnosis as well as reliable operations. The automatic power-on function triggers once it’s connected to the bike and the ignition key is turned on.
The P1000 has a robust table-inspired design with a large full-color 5.6-inch LCD daylight-readable touchscreen. The steady-charge system charges the lithium battery directly from the bike’s diagnostic port. The straightforward navigation and icon menu interface provides clear direction, so even technicians that are new to diagnostics will be turning bikes around at lightning speed.
