Local GS-911

Does anyone in the Dallas - Fort Worth, TX area have a diagnostic tool that we can hook up to my LT? My bike has a inconsistent hesitation at take off or occasionally when I go from higher rpm during engine braking to take off after dropping a gear. as an example: I'll be in second gear engine braking (~4.5-5k rpm) then slip it into 1st. When I throttle on and release the clutch the engine acts like it takes a second to get power. My fuel mpg in-town riding is an average 32-36 mpg while interstate at 80 mph is around 42. Idle is just under 1k rpm according to the indicator. I've changed the O2 sensor, internal fuel lines and fuel filter, spark plugs. It leads me o think there may be a vacuum leak but I would of expected consistent issues. I'd like to hook it up to see what codes may be present before tearing into her again just in case it's all in my head.

Good point, I didn't think of that. I edited the post and now I need to figure out how to fill in the avatar information.

There is a seller on Fleabay that has a rental. Simple search for "BMW GS-911".
