KDS V3
« on: February 09, 2018, 04:51:00 pm »
I know that there is a KDS3 system out there sitting in a drawer, long forgotten and waiting to be used.  If you have one that is not vital to you I ask that you consider selling it - to me.  My local mechanic has taken care of his Christmas fund for the next three years thanks to me.  I would rather not send his kids to college.

If you don't have one but know about one for sale I would appreciate the lead.  Thanks.

Just a little bump in case anyone finds a KDS just lying around taking up space.

Still looking for the correct software.  I now have 2 versions, neither of which has my new KIPASS ECU in the database.  Maybe someone out there has the newest KDS3 version and needs to backup their software?  I would be happy to help.  :)

You can order the software from Kawasaki separately.  It is not too expensive.  IIRC less than $50.

I thought we could only get dealer discards.  I can get it from the Kawasaki site?  Really?

Pretty steep learning curve associated with this particular tool.  And that is all that it is - a tool.  Kawi has a death grip on their software.  Getting an up-to-date version is proving to be a challenge.

Not true. I bought a new version of the software from a dealer for less than $50 iirc.  I'll dig up the info in a few hours.

I believe you.  My experience is proving to be different.

hmmm, disk copy command might cure your problem.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

My offer to create a secure backup still stands.  You never know when you when you will need to recover data.

Yep.  Still in the market for the most recent patch to KDS Ver. 3.  I now own 3.0.9.1 and 3.0.9.2.  I ran across this today:

https://rivaracing.com/i-17283304-kawasaki-diagnostic-software-v3-0-9-4.html

What I would like to know is this...  Is 3.0.9.4 the most recent patch or is there a newer version?  And, perhaps, where and how I might obtain the most recent version.  I know it is a watercraft site...  Does that matter as far as KDS software is concerned?

Anyone?
