Question about Harley Davidson FLHRCI Road King Classic Motorcycles
You didn't say what year or model the bike is. Your problem could be in the fuel cap. A stopped up cap vent will allow your bike to run about five or so miles then sputter to a stop. Try loosening your fuel cap and ride a ways to see if it does it again. I wouldn't do this with a full tank of fuel or you may have fuel in your lap. Also, if your bike is equipped with a vacuum operated petcock, the diaphragm may be bad. You'll have to take the fuel line and the small vacuum line off the back of the petcock. Drain the tanks but loosening the large nut and allowing the fuel to run out. Catch it with a large funnel and an empty gas can. Remove the petcock from the tank. Remove the four small screws on the backside of the petcock that holds the square plate on. Carefully remove the plate and notice how the parts come out. There's a spring, a needle, and a diaphragm in there. Hold the diaphragm up to the light and gently stretch it while looking for a hole. If you find one replace the diaphragm.
