I've been reading and trying to piece together all of the information we'll need in order to hook our bikes up to our own computers with the ultimate (in the future) goals of:
-resetting the service indicator
-adjusting the fuel trim value
-downloading and uploading ECU maps
So far this is where I'm at with my research:
The Scrambler uses a Siemens M3C type ECU which is not the same as the ones used in older Ducatis, and therefore it requires different software than the classic DucatiDiag or the newer JPDiag.
1) One compatible software application is offered by JP and is called MC38
At the moment you can download it here:
2) You need some sort of generic OBDII cable that hooks to your computer (or possibly a bluetooth version that can also be used with your cell phone and associate apps.)
3) You need an adapter that goes from 16 pin OBDII to _____ which connects to the ducati via its OBD port (this part is a mystery to me at the moment, read below.)
4) Once you have successfully hooked your bike up to your computer and the software makes the hand shake, you need to download your ECU data using M3C8 and send this information to JP so he can send you a -free- license file.
5) After that point, you should now be able to re-start the application and see information about your bike's ECU (and hopefully test/reset a few things.)
At the moment, from what I've read, there is no ability to download and upload ECU maps.
This brings me to my question for you guys who already have your bikes... What does the OBD connector look like. Can any of you photograph it? I believe I have bought the wrong adapter cable and would like to know if, indeed, this is the cable I need to purchase. I have in my possession a Fiat style, 3 pin connector with two loose wires with alligator clips on them. I won't post a photo of it yet because I'd like to avoid confusion if it's not correct. I read on another forum that the bike may use a 4 pin connector of a different design.
So if any of you can locate, uncap, and photograph the OBD plug, I'd greatly appreciate it. My goal once my bike is here and once I have the tools to hook my computer up to it is to make a video tutorial and post it online to help everyone else.
