How to choose a good BMW motorbike diagnostic tool?

There are three diagnostic tools mostly used to diagnose/program BMW motorcycles:BMW Icom a2, BMW moto diagnotic tool and gs-911 BMW motorcycle diagnostic. Here, take the best choice for you all to share: BMW ICOM A2 + ICOM D.

What can BMW Icom a2 + Icom D do for bmw moto?

1Supported BMW and MINI complete system diagnostic and offline programming.

2Supported to BMW vehicles up to year 2016

3Support Vehicles including BMW cars, BMW motorcycle, rolls-royce, mini cooper

4Support BMW all series diagnose and programming

 

Actually, ICOM A2 + ICOM D… is kind of expensive but most people use this kit. So far, it is the TOP 1 in the BMW motor diagnostics list, with the most powerful & stable function and the best reputation. ICOM A2 and ICOM D do well in diagnostic, coding and programming. A cool BMW motor deserves the best diagnostic kit.

 

Here is a successful case of bmw moto diagnosis via icom a2 and icom d.

 

Managed to do flash programming on BMW motorrad k1300s:

icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-1 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-2 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-3 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-4 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-5 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-6 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-7 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-8 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-9 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-10 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-11

 

But, if you really cannot afford to ICOM A2 + ICOM D for diagnosis, we suggest you try the cheap kit – K+DCAN cable and BMW Motorcycles Motobikes  ICOM D. Attention!! The kit is for diagnosis only, not programming!

 

Here are the steps that I followed:
1. I cut all the big wire

icom-d-diy

  1. I used a multimeter in order to get the relationship between the pins and wires. I used continuity function.
    3. I ordered a female OBD2 (k+dcan cable and Vagcom cable both ok) because I broke mine trying to eliminate the plastic housing
  2. Then i used this configuration below:

Universal K-Line & CAN BUS Adaptor (K1600)

Signal OBDII Socket BMW 10 pin Plug

K1 15 (Ignition On) 1————————————————–10

Ground 4&5————————————————-4

CAN Hi 6—————————————————–7

K-Line 1 (BMS) 7—————————————–1

K-Line 2 (ABS) 8——————————————2

CAN Lo 14—————————————————–9

KL 30 (Bat+) 16—————————————————–6

 

 

How to setup K+Dcan inpa cable

Notes

1/ Dependant on the software, model & adaptor cable used it may be necessary to invert RI #

and DSR signals to for detection of battery and ignition as per the VAG KKL cable.

2/ This cable & access through the diagnostics port is yet to be tested

 

INPA software Installation

1/ If the cable is supplied without drivers & utilities download them from FTDI

2/ Install driver

Plug in cable, WinXP will find cable,

point to directory with drivers, windows installs.

3/ Set the USB Serial port parameters

/MyComputer/Properties/DeviceManager/Ports(Com&LPT/SerialUSB/Advanced

Set the Latency timer from default 16 msec. to 1 msec

Check USB Port No matches Port No set in INPA/EDIABAS (OBD2.ini)

4/ Install Mprog & modify the programming of the eeprom FT232RL

We need to invert RI # and DSR # signals to fool the detection of battery and ignition.

After programming check your I/O Control settings, they must be :

#C0 = RXLED #C1 = TXLED #C2 = POWERON #C3 = PWRON

#C4 = SLEEP Invert RI ticked Invert DSR ticked

Save settings

 

How to setup ICOM D adapter

8 pins fitted but in wrong pin No’s

Pin 01 – Vi/Sw

Pin 02 – Sw/Rt

Pin 04 – Ws/Ge

Pin 05 – Ws/Bl

Pin 07 – Ws

Pin 08 – Gn/Ws

Pin 09 – Br

Pin 10 – Gn We need pins 1,2,4,6,7,9,10 (Pins 7 & 9 are K1600 CAN Bus)

Plug with bike socket
