97 harley davidson sportster 1200 spits, sputters, and stalls

Hi Anonymous, popping, coughing, spitting, or backfiring through the carburator or induction module can be caused by air getting sucked in combustion chamber do bad intake seals leaking. Leaking exhaust gaskets can also be suspect. Remove air cleaner and backing plate, while engine is idling spray WD-40 or Brake Kleen around intake manifold to head area, if RPM's increase you have an intake leak and seals need to be replaced, also spark plugs will be burning whiter than normal. Good luck

I had to replace the ramp hub and adjuster screw in the clutch on my 2000 sportster 1200 and am interested in finding a pic or diagram on it to make sure i done it right?

Try this site. sportster-1200-sport-xl1200s/o/m18660#sch625756">

If I can describe this, there is a steel plate in the primary cover that has three "holes" in it. In each hole there is a steel ball. The movable plate goes on with the "holes" in it facing the steel balls. Then, there is a snap ring that holds the movable plate on. There is a link that connects the cable end to the movable plate.

Hope this helps.
Good Luck

Have you done a compression test on it. Try that. It also could be a valve, electrical or fuel problem.
