Sounds like drumbanger is on the right track. If this bike ran ok in the past and you have not made exhaust or intake changes, the low speed jet may be partially plugged or you have developed an intake air leak. If this problem has always been there or you have changed something, consider going up a size or 2 on the low speed jet.

Hi there , ok, sounds like your tank is not breathing properly, Check that the petrol cap seal is sealing properly , check your fuel valve and hoses and make sure they are not touching the motor anywhere, most bike operate better with the tank in not in a vacuum so make sure that the breather holes underneath are not blocked , the reason why this phenomena happens is because when the tank is full , the shear weight of the fuel forces it to come out in abundantly which satisfies its request for fuel when you nail it, once the weight is lowered so is the pressure and the fuel has no air to replace itself because the breathers are not sucking in enough air to allow the fuel to flow .

Sounds like an ignition problem. I don't have a lot experience with the newer bikes as I specialize in the older ones, but it seems to me that Harley went to two coils on the Sportster, one for each cylinder or a "two in one" type coil. I'd check the coil and the spark plug wires. If you can tell which cylinder is cutting out on you, test that coil and the spark plug wire. The primary resistance should be 3-4 ohms across the small terminals of the coil.
Also, if the spark plugs you are running have the screw on ends on them, make sure they are tight.
