Default sputtering ?

hey gang. i just jumped on my bike to go to lunch and i noticed that my engine was sputtering a bit. like it was running out of gas. i had 1/4 tank. it seems to get better but i am not sure what that was all about. i am going to ride it back to work to see what happens. i have loodz timing wheel at +4 and O2 disconnected.

Some folks say that they have poor running, only to find their battery connections aren't as tight as they should be. Check your battery bolts.

Also, perhaps bad fuel?

Mine has done that on only a couple occasions when I haven't ridden her in a while (couple weeks). I think it is her letting me know that I haven't taken her out for a run in a while and she is pissed. Like mentioned above, it clears out within a few miles.
