2012 TRX420FM Computer Data?

1504 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  _Wilson_
I just purchased a 12 Rancher, it doesnt have the LCD display, just Neutral, 4X4, CEL, etc Bulbs. Is there a code reader/hand held device i could purchase to see the miles, hours, or basically anything else that the bikes with the LCD screen displays?

Thanks Wayne

So my guess is not even the Honda Dealer can tell me the amount of Hours/Miles on it? My thought was that since there where 2012 Rancher models with LCD displays that display the Hours/Miles that the computers in them would be recording the info reguardless if the bike had the LCD screen or not. Similar to a OBD2 port on vehicles, vehicles dont show every parameter on the dash but hooking up to the OBD2 port would provide you with the data.
I am unfamiliar with Honda being able to do that kind of service, i.e., plug and determine miles/hours but it may be worth a phone call to a local dealer. I noticed you stated, the unit has LCD and based on the service manual, are there options to toggled through it? I realize my unit is newer, but you have to toggle through it to see miles/hours.
no, he stated there are atvs with LCD's, and said his does not have it, and wondered if they still can show all the info ?. atvs with LCD's have a built in memory/CPU chip in them, this stores the info on the display.
