1200 Sportster

I've been riding the bike for around 6 months. I was riding around and it fell I ran out gas but I just filled it up. Like I said I have all 3 fuel, spark and compression. It cranks over and once in a while it fires up for a couple seconds then it just spins over.

Check the fuel filter, and make sure the lining inside the gas tank isn't peeling or flaking.

Check the vacuum hose from the carb to the petcock.

Check the vacuum hose from the carb to the petcock. ALSO no need to double post.
