Motorcycle Diagnostic Scan Tool

Many shops have already invested in this tool and find that it has great coverage of Harley-Davidson, BMW, Japanese, Italian, and many more brands of motorcycles.

This tool covers virtually all major manufacturers' diagnostic functions. It helps the technician to diagnose problems and make repairs faster; many common procedures are written into the tool so the technician can follow them (injectors, ignition, coils, fuelpump, etc.). It allows the technician to perform factory service procedures such as re-setting the service light, encoding keys, unlocking the immobilizer and configuring the immobilizer/alarm, making injection adjustments (CO Trimmer), adjusting the throttle valve position sensor(TPS), re-setting auto adaptive parameters, and making idling adjustments. The tool shows live data; it displays ECU data, reads stored faults (history) or live data (RPM, battery voltage, throttle angle). It's easy to up date the tool via "SmartCard" technology.

Brands that are currently included in the tool: Adiva, Aprilia, Arctic Cat, Benelli, Bimota, BMW, BRP CAN-AM, Buell, Cagiva, Derbi, Ducati, Gas Gas, Gilera, Harley Davidson, Honda, Hyosung, Kawasaki, KTM, KVN Motor, Kymco, Laverda, Malaguti, Mondial, Moto Guzzi, Moto Morini, MV Agusta, Peugeot, Piaggio, Polaris, Sherco, Suzuki, Triumph, Vespa, Voxan, Yamaha

All brands software included.
Various OEM-style cable connector cables are required to connect to the different brands. Updates are available annually.

SYSTEMS COVERED: Ignition, Injection, Immobilizer/alarm, ABS, Dashboard, Body Computer, Injection Regulation, Transmission, EPT, and Service Light Reset.
These systems may not be present on all brands, models, and model years of vehicles.

TOOL FUNCTIONS: view ECU data, read stored fault codes, erase stored fault codes, display live data/parameters, run diagnostic tests, and make certain adjustments.
Some/all functions may not be available on all brands, models, and model years.

The basic kit comes with the following components:

  • Scan tool (MS5650) unit in a protective case. All the software for the covered brands is preloaded in the tool. The tool can be configured for English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, or Italian.
  • Battery cable (SL010051) - for use with the universal cable and the Suzuki injection adjustment cable.
  • "Universal" cable (SL010422) - alligator-style cable that allows connection to many different brands. This cable clips onto a pin on the diagnostic connector on the motorcycle or ATV. To get maximum value from the tool, you will need to purchase the optional OEM-style connectors for the various brands.
  • Power lead (SL010072)- for use with the update process.
  • "Master" cable (SL010474) - necessary for connection to the OEM-style cables that connect to the motorcycles or ATVs. This is "part 1" of the two-part cable system to connect to the motorcycles and ATVs.

Accu-4 steps for an optimal recharge cru-Smart® - 12V models

Diagnosis and recondition:
The charger analyses the battery automatically and check its voltage. A pulse charge will start for the recondition of slightly sulphated batteries.

During the step of recharge, the voltage supplied to the battery increases and the charger delivers a medium to high charging current in order to reach 80% recharge of the battery.

Abs option:
During the absorption step, the charger supplies a constant voltage up a complete recharge of the battery.

Once the battery is fully charged, the charging voltage decreases in order to reach maintenance voltage. This keeps the battery at full charge and ready to use.

Supply function:
All chargers have a supply function allowing the connection of a current consumer during the recharge. This function also allows keeping the memory of the vehicle while replacing the battery.

Power Probe III

The Power Probe III is the most revolutionary automotive circuit tester to date. Packed with quick diagnostic power and multiple capabilities, this small, but powerful tool allows motorcycle technicians to literally speed through regularly scheduled maintenance and the troubleshooting of problems on automotive electrical systems, saving time and money.

How does it Work?
After connecting the Power Probe III's clips to the motorcycle battery, the technician can determine at a glance, the voltage level and the polarity of a circuit without running for a volt meter or reconnecting hook-up clips from one battery pole to the other. The power switch allows you to conduct a positive or negative battery current to the tip for activating and testing the function of electrical components without wasting time with jumper leads. And yes, the Power Probe III is short circuit protected. It tests for bad ground contacts instantly without performing voltage drop tests and locates short circuits without wasting precious fuses. It tests for continuity with the assistance of its auxiliary ground lead. Also, with a flip of the power switch, you will know instantly that your Power Probe III is functioning without running to the battery as you would otherwise have to do with simple test lights. Finally, the unit's 20-foot cable (extendable 40-feet) allows you to test along the entire length of the vehicle without constantly searching for ground hook-ups. Together, these features make the Power Probe III an absolute must for motorcycle technicians at all levels who are looking for a fast and accurate solution to electrical systems diagnostics.

Sealed Lead Acid Multi-Charger

Part No: BA00-0019

This sealed lead acid battery charger is a state of the art high quality product.

Designed to be robust yet technically superior they achieve excellent performance at an economic cost.

Incorporating toroidal transformers and linear MOSFET designs, this battery charger is healthier for your batteries by eliminating current pulses which can heat up your battery and cause damage to its cells.

Linear design also means less electrical pollution than equivalent switch mode or wave switched designs.

The SLA charger is factory adjusted for 4 parameters.
- Bulk charge maximum voltage
- Standby charge voltage
- Current limit
- Low current, bulk to standby mode, changeover point

The charger works in 3 stages:
Stage 1. Maximum current is put into the battery until a pre-set terminal voltage is reached.
Stage 2. When a terminal voltage is reached, voltage is stabilised and current is allowed to gradually reduce.
Stage 3. When charging current falls to a pre-set level the battery is fully charged and the terminal voltage is reduced. This is known as the maintenance charge level. The battery can be left like this indefinitely

  • Two stage charging
  • Current limited output
  • Short circuit protection
  • Sustains reverse battery connection
  • Display lamp status
  • Latest MOSFET regulation for high efficiency
  • Strong robust metal case
  • Linear design
    - better for your batteries
    - better for the environment
    - low EM radiation
