Question Obd 2

Does Victory use OBD II for the engine diagnostics?

I could be wrong, but I think that there is an obd2 type connector, but if plug an automobile code reader/scanner, you'll short something out!

I'm not 100%...maybe someone who knows more can give a better answer.

The connector looks like an ODB2, but connecting an automotive scanner to it risks corrupting the ECM. Do not do it, regardless how tempting it gets.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Wow!
That seems kind of nefarious. Why would they choose an OBDII
connector if it's not OBDII? Seems like they could have chosen a more compact connector.

Thanks guys for the warning.

LOL. Talk about being overly prepared for when the baby... err, bike arrives.
