Not sure what protocol it uses.

I seriously doubt it could be made to work without extensive engineering. Not worth the effort to try.
BMWs system, the "Motronic" computer on the bike, and their proprietary diagnositic computer "MoDiTec" software which is licensed to BMW Service Departments, probably has little in common with the OBD protocols. I'm not knowledgable about this stuff, but unless you are a techno-geek with lots of time on your hands, and you want to DIY your code read outs your best bet it to purchase a GS-911 or check with some one on this board who has one.

Some time ago a thread was started on this site creating a registry of members of this forum who have a GS-911 and are willing to help.

Here it is: http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/showthre...s-911+registry

OBD2 is an automotive standard, motorcycles need not apply, not yet anyway.
THe GS911 is the simple plug and play solution. If you are a DIYr it's a worthwhile investment. The LT will not eat a vin so find a tech day and kindly ask to use it.

No it uses a special BMW connection and diagnostic. Lift the seat, look just to the front left of the rear seat, there is a barrel connector there. That is the connection point for the diagnostic. After market tool called a GS-911, think I got that right, will do the diagnostic function.

OBD2 Interface?

Does the LT, mine is a 2005, have an OBD2 interface?

If so, where is it located?
