I found this site where the guy offers freeware for ducati diagnosis similar to the VDST tool, you just have to source the cables from E-Bay or wherever. Has anyone tried it i see on the forum that there are quite a few refences to Guzzis, I'm assuming that ducati and Guzzi use a similar ECU.  http://ducatidiag.xooit.com/index.php you need to register before you can access the forums. Most of the forums are in French as well........From what I've been able to gather once you download the software you need to send the guy your ECU serial number and then he will send you whatever it is that is needed to get you up and running I think that's so that people won't copy his program and then commercially sell it, there are updated maps as well to download. anyone have any experience with it?

Hello Suncoast!

I too am interested in this diagnostic software tool. I registered on the website for it, and saw you had already asked the questions I would have asked about some instructions for cabling, and use of the software. I did not see any clear answers, or a direction to english instructions.

I know there is a USB409.1 cable; but I am not sure about the type connector required to hook my 2007, Breva 1100 up to the cable that then interfaces to the computer usb cable. Think I saw something about a Fiat; 16pin to 3 pin cable; with battery leads; but i was not sure if that would work with the later model Guzzi's, or just the older ones.

Could you please enlighten me as to which cables I would need and where to obtain them?

Also downloaded the ducatdiag23.zip file thru a link i got from one of the USA Guzzi forums; but mu antivirus software flagged it as having a
virus and would not let me unzip it.

Could you please supply me with a safe known link that you downloaded the software from? I registered and tried to find a link on the ducatidiag forum to the downloads but had no luck.

This is my first Moto Guzzi and I am still working out the gremlins; but really love the bike. Think it will be a keeper once I get it all sorted out.

Sorry for being a PITA; but your help is greatly appreciated!!!

Best regards;
  Mark

Try this link, from JP's site.
http://jpl250rs.perso.sfr.fr/download.php

I've downloaded and ordered the cables off fleabay. You need a usb to ODB2 VAG KKL cable, (don't ask me what it means!!!) and the ODB2 to fiat/alfa/lancia cable. Yhis is for the 5AM and 59M ECU's. There's different software for the older ECU's

You install the software, connect to the ecu and copy the ECU info, and send it to the user forum, then JP sends you the licence enableing the TPS reset function.

I haven't done any service yet, have other work to do on the bike first. You can also download a map edit software, and purchase a licence to reflash your ECU, but this is a different ballgame.

I have it but only used it on my Ducati.

There are quite a few Guzzi guys on the forum so it obviously can be used for the later Guzzis, my Guzzi doesn't need it.

I have only used it so far to upload the ECU map, you can also look at the map with it using another tool for free on the forum.

Get the cables off E-Bay and either use the serial or USB driver with the cable or any of the others out there on the Interweb. Once you establish comms you send JP serial number and data on your ECU and he sends you a Licence file. You insert this into the Ducati diag directory and the TPS reset and Service light reset become enabled.

For 100 Euro you can purchase licence for writer software for an ECU, this enables you to write to that particular ECU as many times as you want. I believe subsequent licences are 75 Euro.

Paul Miinnaert who is on here sometimes uses it with his Guzzi I believe

One last thing be careful when you connect up to get the battery clips polarity correct or you can damage the ECU. It is a great tool just go slow when you first use it.

I brought up another ECU hack program a few months ago, but eventually found out that it wouldn't tackle the 15RC ECU which is unique to Guzzi, that's used in the smallblocks ( smallblocks forever! ).

for older Guzz's you need the oldecu program, http://jpl250rs.perso.sfr.fr/download.php the bottom one. That works for p8/15m/16m ecu's  I do some research for the program, feel free to ask what you want to know.
