I'm looking to buy a used DealerTool so I emailed DealerTool to see if the version I'm looking at would work for my bike.
They told me it would but that I would need to buy an "unlock key" from them for about $32.
Has anyone bought a used DealerTool and can confirm that the unlock key is required?

You need a new key every time it connects to a different ECU so if the previous owner has connected to his bike using the dealer tool you will need to purchase a new key.
I think the only exception is the more expensive version that can connect to unlimited bikes.
That's one of the reasons why in most cases you're better off with tune ECU.

Yes you need a new key for each bike.
Use that knowledge when negotiating a price on a used one. Remember when buying new the key for one bike is included in the price.

Also realize tune ecu can be used for many triumphs and that software is cheap if you have an Android device.

Thanks, I'll check out TuneECU. I've used a version of it on a couple of Ducati's I owned.
Quick Ducati joke:
What do you call a guy that owns a Ducati?
A Ducatisti.
What do you call a guy that owns 2 Ducati's?
A mechanic.
