actually i tried to hunt scanner. but all the time i found car scanner. and i don't want handheld for sure..so i heard that usb based is better which can get upgrade very easily. and laptop is better option than handheld scanner. so i heard that the scanner is USB and can be attached to the laptop. correct me if i m wrong coz i m new to this.
i may be wrong in understanding the scanner tool..coz till now i have used nothing. All i worked on indian motorcycles which are not ECM based. so my knowledge is bit low.

Are you talking about a radio scanner or some kind of tool for pulling information from the ECU?
I'm not aware of anything that will pull data from the ECU but the Dynojet Wideband Commander offers data logging for fuel management.

through the given connector.
any bike which has ECM.
it is only if there is any malfunction in the bike and to check the fault code.

i want it for repairing purpose.
I'm not aware of any "given connector" although it may be possible that some bikes have such a thing.
I don't think there is such a device that will fit different bikes.
Honda has an ECU diagnostics device but as far as I know it's only available to authorised dealers - and it's so expensive that very few dealers have it. I believe you remove the ECU from the bike and connect it to the device and then connect the device into the ECU connectors of the bike's harness.
To pull fault codes most bikes have a diagnostics connector that you bridge and codes are displayed on the bike's dash.

in the pic. the connector is coming with the device which connects to the ECU, right?
In the pic you posted from ARC-MART, no there is no connector that will connect to any ECU I've seen. It appears to simply have serial and USB ports?

That depends on exactly what you mean by "scanner".
All it does is record throttle position, air/fuel ratio. engine RPM and other data that you can then adjust to optimise your fuel mapping.
For diagnostics all vehicles I've worked on (which is not a wide range) have in-built diagnosis by bridging a connector and counting beeps and/or flashing codes on the dash.

Yes, other bikes use error codes on the dash.
I will have to research the R125 as I've never heard of it.

Interesting bike :)

Yes, you should simply be able to use the error codes listed in the workshop manual. The error codes only relate to the fuel injection system and its sensors so it won't diagnose non-FI problems.
