I will do most of my own maintenance on my 2014 but I was wondering if I would need this device. I have seen everyone mention it and read up on it a little but is it something that is REALLY needed?

Thanks ahead of time.

You can do most of what you need to do without it. What you won't be able to do is check for any logged faults that could indicate a failing component, clear the faults you may have introduced doing the service, and resetting the service needed indicator. That last item bugs the hell out of a lot of riders and is reason enough to get the device.

Where the device is necessary, IMHO, is in providing data to track down issues when things are not going as designed.
