KDS3 update of sorts.  I obtained a used Dealer Kit from ebay that has the original version of the software.  Through the years there have been "updates" to the database as new versions of the hardware (ECU's mostly) have rolled out.  My new KIPASS ECU was in one of those updates so I had to find the version of the software that included it.  It is a hit-and-miss process since the updates aren't widely documented and you can't tell which ECU is supported by the updates.  Also, the KDS is not Concours specific.  The program is used for tuning tons of Kawasaki gear (snowmobiles, quads, jetskis, and Motorcycles).  It still confuses the crap outta me when I search for KDS solutions for the Connie.

Add to that the need to run KDS on XP and I needed a cheapo laptop - got one from craigslist.  Anyhow, my KDS is up and running mostly because I got help from a fellow rider on this forum.

PM me and maybe we can get your toolbox set up.

Part number:  57001-1802

Ver 3.0.9.4   I ordered it thru a dealer and got it a few days later.

If you Google that p/n it will come up with the 2016 training package for KDS in .pdf format.

I downloaded the training manual but the dealer stated item isn't for sale; dealer item only. Which dealer did you order it from?

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.

Captain Crunch, did you ever get the info on where you bought the KDS3 Software?

I ordered it from a dealer in Australia - where I live.   :thumbs:  Tree mentioned that he got help from a fellow rider on this forum.  Perhaps that fellow rider may be able to help you too as a last resort.   Send a PM to Capt Crunch if you haven't already, as he's closer.
