World’s First Personal Diagnostic Tool for Harley-Davidson Motorcycles

Smart Vehicle Diagnostics LLC and DIAGNOSTICA LLC introduce wireless on-board diagnostic (OBD) adapters that work with a free smartphone app to give motorcycle owners the ability to diagnose different types of
Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

LINDENHURST, NY – April 6, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  Smart Vehicle Diagnostics LLC, a creator of unique diagnostic tools for automobiles, trucks and powersports vehicles, and DIAGNOSTICA LLC, an innovative diagnostic equipment company, announced today 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.”

“Smart Vehicle Diagnostics creates truly unique and market-leading products for motorcycle diagnostics, and we are proud to be their distribution partner,” said Lisa DiFalco, VP Marketing at DIAGNOSTICA LLC. “We are very excited about how the new Motorscan smartphone diagnostic tools for Harley-Davidson motorcycles will empower bike owners. We are confident that that they will become a must-have device for all Harley-Davidson enthusiasts.”

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.

  1. So now H-D Owners can watch their bikes break in real time on a cell phone? That’s how the article seems to come across. The “Engine Data” feature should be stressed and talked up, with the “fault code data” as an added feature. The article and product description comes across that H-D Owners NEED to know when their bike is about to suffer a breakdown because it’s normal for them to do that. Not good.

  2. Anyone that has driven bikes for some time knows that those annoying alerts to come up. Many aren’t serious but other require immediate attention.

    I believe H-D owners would like to quickly get a summary of the fault code data to decide whether or not such issues need immediate attention. Engine data is a welcome addition, but I think safety needs come first when handling a motorcycle.

    Plus I love the fact that any codes requiring immediate attention can be sent as a report to a trusted mechanic. Not every mechanic has the parts on hand for a repair and it can help mechanics better serve their customers and get out of stock parts faster.

    Don’t H-D owners need to know if a code is related to a serious issue or not? This product informs the bike owner before they handle it themselves, clear codes or take the bike into a shop. Feel free to address additional questions to me at media@diagnostica.tools.
