I’ve been looking over this question for some time on and off, unfortunately I don’t have access to my bike at the moment I was hoping someone here has been successful on clearing the dashboard lights. (Mainly the maintenance light)

The scoop sofar.
Okay, from what information I have the 2013 Monster 1100 evo,
It is only covered via the M3C9 software and via the 4 pin Can Bus interface. (Supplied by LONLEC)

You can confirm with the software author on the JPDiag :: Index site

Does anyone have the steps to perform the rest?

When I have any other information I will update this post.

I've used the LONLEC cables, but also have tried a few ebay-special versions. They all seem to work just fine.
For clering the codes, yes, the 4-pin cable you mentioned is the correct one, but you are not restricted to just the M3C9 software.
I've used EOBD-Facile on this same ECU for reading/resetting error codes and getting general engine readings.

Here: OBD2 Car diagnostic software for ELM327 ▷ Free download

It runs on MacOS/Windows and has an iOS and Android version too.
The company supplies their own OBD2 dongle (KlavKarr) which is a little pricey, but the EOBD-Facile software works fine with the generic OBD2 dongles too.
I have used both the KlavKarr dongle and also this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08887TNBB/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

As an aside, when I first bought the KlavKarr it didn't support Ducati well at all and I contacted their support with a few bugs/problems.
They were great, and released a revision of the software a few weeks later with pretty good Ducati support.
I'd say if they hear positive feedback form some customers, and/or get some more feature requests/bug-reports, they might continue to improve it.

I am reading the functions and capabilities/comparison list on the KlavKarr website. Which version did you purchase? Basic?

I have the KlavKarr 210 (I think it's called 'expert').
I also use it quite a bit on my Subaru and have used it to help a friend out diagnosing some problems with his Honda.
So I would't hesitate to recommend.

However you might want to be aware of some compatibility issues. There are various versions of the ELM chip that is used in these dongles for OBD2.
Early ones used a chip from a company called "ELM" and had a protocol/interface version number up to 1.4 or 1.5 IIRC.
These are very widely supported by lots of open-source software and freeware.
Newer dongles seem to have higher version numbers, e.g. 2.0 and 2.1. Not all of these are supported by older software.

Just so you are of the combinations that work/don't work - here is what I had last time I tried:

ScannerSoftwareCombatability
KlavKarr 210EOBD-Facile Works OK
KlavKarr 210M3C9Doesn't work
OBD2 ELM 327 V1.4 (from Amazon)EOBD-Facile Works OK
OBD2 ELM 327 V1.4 (from Amazon)M3C9 Works OK

Maybe others can add/comment...

I have not used the OBS STAR Scan tool or know the extent of youre background knowledge.
That being said..The detailed list of descriptions you provided all sounds very good, sounds like it makes for an easy and painless experience.

Please provide feedback on your experience and keep this page updated, also provide details of your bike and hat you used the scanner for, best of luck 👍

I have ZERO experience in using any diagnostic tool or anything about codes. But someone gave me a 2015 Ducati Monster 1200S mechanics repair manual which is over 1000 pages and shows you literally every screw, bolt, part etc. It shows you how to literally take the bike apart and put in back together. Shows how to work on and how to get to ANYTHING on the bike. It’s a treasure trove of information. Gives you all codes. I mean this PDF can show someone with no mechanical experience how to do. So that’s why I was interested in a scan tool. The OBDSTAR is a little pricey at $500usd. Maybe I should try something like a Bosch scanner that’s around $60. plus a plug and save a lot of money and learn how to first. Any recommendations? And if you have a 2014-2016 1200 and would like the PDF I can hook you up.

Very nice !! With that kind of attitude the sky it the limit. I would recommend trying a less expensive solution prior to spending all that on a scan tool you will probably only use for 1 bike. Something like that for me is not worth it unless I’m working on multiple bikes.
I just came back from a weeks riding I did the Grand Algoma Route in Northern Ontario.. I even did a nice 6 hour route at the North side of Sault Ste-Marie and wrapped around Lake Superior over to Tahquamenon falls.
Anyways, once I have time ill mess around with the LONLEC stuff I have and update this thread.
read the above as some of the guys have a more cost friendly manor of resetting the maintenance lights an reading the diagnostic codes.

I’m basically new to all this. Not riding. I’ve been riding 35 years. With scanners and codes etc. my cluster dash is not working right. Left hand switch let’s me only scroll up but can’t get into any settings whatsoever. She stuck in sports mode. Odometer is just dashes - - - -. I haven’t a clue and trying to research this.
