Any 'Diagnostic Tool' for Harley made by aftermarket company?

Did some searches here & also google, but was not able to get any proper info and hence putting this query here.

A mechanic friend of mine who repairs most brands of motorbikes was interested in purchasing a Diagnostic tool SPECIFICALLY FOR HARLEY DAVIDSONS (the Fuel Injected versions). Not interested in generic 'one size fits all' kind nor looking at small equipment to tune engines etc but something similar to the GS911 (for BMW bikes) that you plug in, to diagnose faults etc.

I was told the original Harley diagnostic equipment needs to be plugged into the Harley network for upgrades etc, besides, that may not be available, and if available will cost an arm & leg I guess.

Does such a thing exist? Anybody using such an equipment? If so the pros & cons would also be appreciated.

Thanks

A popular choice is the Dynojet Power vision, which as well as being an EFI tuner, lets you check and clear error/diagnostic codes.
Other tuners would do the same, like V&H FP3.

Or are you looking for something else?

Thanks Gordon for the prompt response. I checked them both out and it seems the Power Vision should fit our needs. Its about US$ 549.

I bought vdsts software for a Guzzi I had. They also made a version for Harley's and buells. It worked great on the guzzi.

The power vision was developed with HD with plans to sell it thru HD, but decided against it no doubt because of emissions requirements. I have seen it in operation on my '14 Road King. It is as complete as anything I have ever seen in San Jose BMW's racing program. From idle speed to rev limiter to even setting throttle characteristics. On my bike I had 6 choices of throttle actuation. Once you have the unit then it is a simple matter of paying a small one time fee for each unique VIN.

Thanks. When you mention a small One Time Fee for 'each VIN number', I need for a garage to hook onto different customer Harleys as and when required, so am I limited to the no of bikes I can use this on??

How many motorcycles can I use the Power Vision on?

The Power Vision will only be able to tune one motorcycle (flash it as many times as you like). It can be connected to other motorcycles to monitor / log data, check and clear DTC’s (diagnostic trouble codes), and reset adaptive learning.
You can buy additional tune licenses.
