I am considering a XL700 for an extended tour and would like to know how complex it is. Does it have any onboard Diagnostics ?
If not does the service manual give any information on checking individual components ?
Do throttle bodies need balancing ?

e.x The Yam XT range will display status of all the sensors and the Suzuki DL can be put into a service mode with a switch enabling full diagnostics and throttle body sync.

Does anyone have experience of the BikeTech OBD Diagnostic unit ?
Thanks.

Yes, the 700 has on-board diagnostics - indicated by different flashing sequences of the PGM-FI and ABS indicator warning lights. There are also a couple of diagnostic connectors and also ways of testing systems in situ. The Honda Workshop manual gives all the details... part No. 62MFF00

Grey alp, there's a honkin' gert big one - the official Honda Shop manual for the bike, about 2 inches thick. Like the Haynes only much better and handwritten by Honda's own kimono-clad geishas... Part number as in my post above, about £23 as I recall. I ordered mine from my friendly, local independent (non Honda) bike workshop.

PS. I was joking about the geisha bit...

Well the shop manual arrived today. Nice new addition to the bookcase. Makes your average Haynes look like a comic. would suggest it is probably the best 20 and a halfquid you could spend on your bike. sure it will pay for itself in no time. (And for all us grown up sensible type bikers its got lots of pictures:p)
