1.8 Confirm Com Port For Communication

Under 'Communication', select 'Port Setting'. The default setting is USB and should be kept on USB unless issues arise.

Direct Link Connection

Important: If the VCM-TR1 is not powered by the motorcycle (VCM-TR3/VCM-TR4 and Maximus will be powered by the USB connection), then the correct COM Port will not appear (indicated by an illuminated LED). To rectify, press 'Cancel' and power the VCM-TR1 by turning on the ignition switch and making sure the engine stop/run switch is in the RUN position. Once the LED light is on, the Direct Link hardware is on, select 'Communication' and 'Port Setting' again to select the correct COM Port.

Either select the COM Port manually using the arrows or click the box to use USB (preferred):
