If there is a standard OBD2 port, where is it? Is it somewhere between the passenger seat and the console? If there isn't an OBD2 port, where is the other diagnostic port? I'm curious since any hand held programmer like a Diablo, Hypertech, etc. would need this port. Not to mention, it would be nice to use our automotive OBD2 tools to work on the Slingshot.

It does not have an OBD II connector.

kctay, it has a connector that the dealers can hook up to the digital wrench diagnostic that they have. Last I read, there were vendors here working on a conventional connection adapter

It's hardly a motorcycle even though it is classified as one. Do you two ever truly have anything helpful to add? It's like Laurel and Hardy visit the forums. Anyway, since it has a car motor, I thought perhaps OBD2 connectivity. That would have made things easy. Thanks funinsthesun and luckyone.

I have both the MEFI Scan and I have the ChekTech system also. The CheckTech system is not working perfect yet. But the owner of the system is working on a fix. It is picking up several of the channels such as rpm, coolant temp and power steering voltage draw but its missing things like IAT and throttle position. He is working on it.

The MEFI system pulls all the data. It's just in metric and its confusing to watch the real time display.

Google Rinda Technologies, I believe they are in Chicago. They make professional diagnostic tools and software which support all MEFI systems. They are primarily used by the marine industry.

There is a diagnostic connector that is in front of the fuse box, a group of wires runs into it and it's labeled "diagnostic.". It's not an OBD standard connector, so unless someone makes a cheater, only the dealer can use it.
