Anyone have experience with this OBD tool?

I went to calsportbike.com to look at pipercross air filters, clicked on the Online Store button and saw an ad for the HealTech Electronics Suzuki OBD tool for $219.99.

http://www.calsportbike.com/cgi-bin/...d=2045&count=1

A lot cheaper than the factory tool, which they don't sell to the public anyway. I emailed them to make sure it could be used to synchronize throttle bodies on new bikes and this is the reply I got:

Yes, that's correct.

Before you start to sync the throttle bodies, you need to lock the ISC
valve.
This can be done by our OBD Tool. Select the "Active Test" tab and turn the
"ISC air volume control" to ON.
(Note that the engine must be running and the coolant temp should be between
70C and 105C).

After the sync, it is recommended to stop the engine and then push the "ISC
learned value reset" button. Start the engine and let it idle for 1-2 mins
and the ECM will learn the correct ISC value.

Kind Regards,
/Norbert

As you can see, my reply came from HealTech Electronics. Looks like they also make SpeedoHealers.

This may be something I'll have to invest in.

Now that's interesting. It could be fun to play with.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

I got one. Right now, it can't access the ECM to lock the ISC. Healtech knows about it so I'm expecting a software upgrade is in the works.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.

Did they give you any kind of timeframe on the required software patch?

I'm not crazy enough to ask for a software update timeframe. I used to be a programmer before I retired. When it works, I'll post an update.

Thanks for being the guinea pig. I was thinking about this just this weekend when I got an FI code on my gixxer at a track day. Luckily it was intermittant and went away. I will probably get one too. Please keep us posted on the update.

wa wa wait a minute. Can't access the ECM? Isn't that it's intended function?

Mine will be here Wednesday... Now I'm disappointed.

Being a software guy and managing a software test team for years how could the software's main function not work before releasing the software?

Oh well, hopefully they will be quick about it.

They sent me a Beta update today. It now allows locking the ISC at 58 steps once the temps reach 80C but generates the unsupported ECM function message when trying to turn it off or re-set the ISC value. The Off button does unlock the ISC valve despite the message and the factory method of putting the bike in dealer mode, turning the ignition on, turning it off for at least five seconds then taking it out of dealer mode still works. That makes the beta software workable but it can be a lot better and I'm sure it will be.

I'm going to reserve most of my questions and input until mine arrives and I get a chance to put it on the bike. I don't see the tank being put on the bike for at least a week or so.



I'm confused a bit. So you plug it in, let it get to temp and it will lock the ISC valve which will allow you to do the sync. When you go to turn the ISC lock off it errors out. However, it does unlock the ISC Valve. I'm good until that part. The rest has me wondering. Does this software put the bike in Dealer mode? Or are you flipping the switch or jumping it?

also:
I inquired with them about linux support. They are not planning on porting the program. However, they did send me a link to the software (not the beta) to play with. I was able to get it to run under Wine on EEE Ubuntu with no problems. Whether or not it will interface with the USB port won't be known until it arrives. If they didn't rely on windows USB drivers and it shows up as a tty device it should just work. If not I'll explore more or just load up a window XP boot SD/Flash drive to use with it.
