    Remove air cleaner. Remove fuel line. If fuel line has never been removed since bike left factory, the hose clamp is crimped on, and needs to be cut with side cutters. Remove carb. Remove float bowl. You should now be able to access jets.

With just this info.Not knowing if the engine is stock or has bigger cams or high comp pistons.I would say check the starter solenoid by running jumper wire from one side to the other.then check ALL connections for corrosion and tightness

I would guess stale gasoline or fuel. Try fresh fuel in the tank. If this doesn't clear the problem, you could need to have your carburetor or fuel injection system cleaned. I'm not even sure if they put fuel injection on Sportsters since I don't work on fuel injected bikes. I mostly work on the older bikes like Panheads, Shovelheads, Evos. Not too many Sportsters but have worked on a lot of Ironhead Sportsters. Try the fuel first. It's a cheap fix. Hope it works for you. Good luck with the knee replacement. My wife had one knee replaced and it works great.

Not getting spark all the time


I think the only problem you have is a loose or corroded connection somewhere. Check your module plug connectors for corrosion (green junk). Check wires to coil, kill switch and other connections for loose or frayed wires or connectors.I doubt that you have a bad electrical component since it starts sometimes but it is possible. Let us know what you find.
