Question about 2005 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom
Spitting and sputtering sounds like a fuel problem. Have you checked the fuel flow from the fuel petcock. It's vacuum operated and sometimes the diaphragm gets a hole in it. When this happens, it doesn't open properly. When acceleratign, the manifold vacuum is low anyway dut the carburetor being wide open. Pull the fuel hose off and spin the engine with the starter while watching the fuel flow. If it's not a good flow, you may want to replace the petcock.
