Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 05 harley softail deluxe ive only had it about 3 weeks, it had sad in the previous owners garage for a year, it only had 4900 miles on it when i bought it, ive put about 300 on it, it ran great for awhile, now its starting to miss out and spit and sputter and backfires, mainly misses out when i accelerate at low speed or deccelerate from road speed, never when its idling. i replaces the spark plugs put a new battery in it, that didnt help, what would the next option be fuel filter? crankshaft position sensor? re map the fueling?
The problem you describe indicates a air/fuel ratio problem so I would be looking at any hoses that may have perished, MAP/MAF sensors and coil problems. If it is possible then get a fault code reading as it will save money from "guess" repairing

Somewhere along the the line you may have a fuel blockage or a good dose of water in your fuel tank.Check the water in tank 1st.Add 1 litre of metholated spirits to every 20 litres of fuel.This will allow the water to break down and be burnt through the motor over time.Do this twice.If this does not work,there may be a glob of **** in the fuel tank that blocks the pickup.If this is the problem,the tank needs to be taken out and cleaned.I hope this is a start to get you back on the road.
