  1. Ciao Guest - we've been proud to harbor such wonderful Guzzisti camaraderie since 2005, for FREE. Times have changed, and so have the attitudes and expectations of far too many. Starting Jan 1, 2020, we will likely be shifting to a paid to participate format. You will still be able to read for free. This should alleviate all of the negativity that the free social media channels have created. If you are a donor or customer of ours, you're in, just use the Contact tab above if your account is not already promoted, or you can Upgrade your account once signed in. Or the Donate tab above is another option. We look forward to continuing this service to the Guzzi community, but it is not cheap or easy to host and maintain. We wish you the best for the Holidays and in the New Year.

    So far nobody here has been able to glean it!

    Thing is all the functions that used to be covered by the OBD are now it seems only accessible by Navi or PADS. Oh and the dash self-scrolls now so when you do find the code you'll need to be quick on the draw with the toggle switch! :D

    That will make it difficult to reset the service icon if there is one.

    Yeah, found that! But once I got used to it, it's easier than pushing the button umpteen times. Reckon I actually prefer it.

    I am looking for it too. The RSV4 is 12412, but that doesn't work on the 1400

    If you want to clear the service icon you need PADS. Even with PADS it needs the latest update as the factory forgot to put that function in in the first Cali 14 program!

    That will be a real pain for owners. Hopefully the guys at Techno Research can get that into Centurion Pro and the single version VDSTS for the Cal 1400.

    At a time when the European Union regulators are bringing in a standard OBD system for new bikes, trust Piaggio/Guzzi to do this.
    The intention is to allow non franchised dealers to be able to access fault codes etc.

    PADS is the Piaggio Advanced Diagnostic System (So called.) Its the latest version of the factory's diagnostic software. They have given Texa away and this system is I believe developed 'In house' as it were. I only got mine a couple of weeks ago and haven't had a chance to play with it much yet but it does have significant advantages over Navigator.

    so, in theory my local Guzzi agent should be able to do it? I will wait untill the 1000 km service and hopefully, they can do it then!

    Having purchased the single user version of Centurion and just talking to them on the phone I can unfortunately say that it will not reset the service indicator. Which, unfortunately was the primary reason I bought it. .:banghead:

    Yes. A ride to my dealer and $76 out of my pocket. Reminds me of my now gone BMW. Guzzi has to stop reading BMW's business plan.

    So, assuming you want to continue to do your own maintenance and own the bike for years to come, is it worth buying the PADS tool for $443.00 from Harpers? Is that all you need to reset the wrench? At $76 per reset, I guess you would break even at about 40,000 miles.

    Nowhere on the Harper's website do they mention PADS. My understanding is you have to be an accredited Moto Guzzi dealer to obtain PADS, and it comes with a hefty annual subscription.

    My guess is that it's the old Axone diagnostics tool, which was discontinued before the Cali 1400 was born.
