Hey goose, we need more info, sputtering could be alot of different things. Does it happen off idle, full throttle, or all over rpm range? Motor hot or cold? Any black smoke out the exhaust? Please be as descriptive as you can.
And don't give up on this site, there are alot of people on here that like to help, Adder being one of the more knowledgeable, just have to get use to his "to the point" replies. Once you do, I'll bet you laugh more at some of them.
