No shit. It's a two page web site. But if you call their
800 number they're usually quick to answer and they've
always been real helpful.

Can't answer your question but I do know that most
manufacturers of the hardware interface make them to
conform to a standard that allows them to work across a
broad range of vehicles. It's the software that will
probably be hard to find.
I just purchased a Kent-Moore adapter that will read a wide
variety of truck engines (Mack, Cummins, Caterpillar) but I
had to go to the engine manufacturers to buy the software
in order to use it. The hardware was $500. The software
ranged between $600 and $1000 per package.
Something tells me you'll be hard pressed to find something
for Harley. But I could be wrong.
