    Did the previous owner remove the accessory socket and replaced it with a USB charger?

    Any more details on that?

    I use the OBDLink LX. Sometimes it takes 30 seconds for MotoScan to connect through the adapter. But once the link is up there are no interruptions.

    Spitting fire out of the exhaust could be firing at the wrong time or, missed fire. In which case I would look at the hall sensor on the camshaft or use a good old strobo light to check the spark's...
