So you plug it to diagnostic socket and it's working but it won't program, well ask for money back and pay a bit more for one, that's what I would do. If it's compatible it will program easy.

I paid $50...guess the main question is.....is the 2014 BR500R different as far as the plug in.....(2 wires vs.3 or four?)

That I cannot answer. Don't how it works on two wires when you need speed, revs,and gear position to make it work. Plus a feed and eartlh. You should as I recall put on a stand select first run to 3,000 display flashes then settles to solid,change gear to second and do the process for all gears. Should recognise each gear within seconds.

It communicates via the diagnostic data bus with the ECU, to receive speed and RPM data. It uses a single wire ISO14320-K protocol for the communication therefore it would need 3 wires to connect.
GND
ACC (swithched 12V to provide power for the unit)
K-line (the common name of the above data bus)
I can't see how woukd it work via 2 wires.

That is what I feared, you are using the wrong port!

That is the options port for attaching accessories, it just a simple 12V switched connection.

The diagnostics port is red, with a flat cover, and should be near the frame on the righthand side of the bike.

As someone said rightly. The DLC (diagnostic link connection) port is the red four pin connector, different from the Options plug.

Am I blind?...The only
red is the battery shield.....should I look elsewhere?

I think it's near the battery with a black cover that comes off to reveal a red plug. And by the way oyabun was right, your gear indicator will need to be three pin.

What is the thick sheath fastened to the frame in the bottom right corner of your photo? That is where it should be, the port may have a large black loose plastic surround for weather protection.

remove seat. look towards the rear pillion on the right side (brakes side) of the bike. it might be partially (or totally) hiding under a plastic cover.

here's a pic of my 2013 cbr500r shot towards the rear. look to the left of the accessory connector.
