    I'd be interested in more recent models too: We have a 2017 and a 2018. Today, touring in S Wales, the '18 intermittently showed the engine light on switch-on. Just for exactitude the '18 is an F, but same difference. No data signal on camp so couldn't do a lot except ignore it. Just after leaving, we happened to pass a Yamaha garage - Lamo's I think called* - so asked. After a bit of tinkering & reading the chap said it changed in 2016, and the above method no longer worked, by which time I'd also read the above. And no he didn't have a Honda reader.

    Is it true? No way to read out post 2016 without reader? What kind of device is needed that we might afford and carry on tour?

    *Fascinating, as much a bike museum as a shop!

    If your diagnostic socket is red with 6 pins then check the previous answers ....

    any info on cb500x 2020 model?????
    mine has an 8 pin diagnistic socket of which 5 pins are used

    anyone ?????

    I just went through this on my 22 which has the 5 wires as well.  On the top there is a brown wire on the outside pin, a brown in the center, and a green on the other outside pin.  The two outside (brown / green) are the correct wires to short.  It worked perfectly and cleared my fault light.

    Thanks for the MIL Guide!

    Verified the expected codes after installation of EJK one 2016. All good.
