I'm getting some troubling sputtering when accelerating and at steady throttle. Does the Raider have a fuel filter?

I cannot imagine any gas engine not having a fuel filter.

If you cant find one on your bike, someone took it off and did not replace it.

The Raider doesn't have a fuel filter like a carbed bike. It has a fuel strainer attached to the fuel pump in the tank. I could not find a replacement as it comes with the pump. It's similar in design to automotive fuel injector pump setup. Many newer cars do not have a serviceable fuel filter as it's built-in to the pump.

Issue was the plugs. I didn't gap them last time. When I removed them they were off. Gap is supposed to be 0.8-0.9 mm. The ones I put in before were under 0.6. Lesson learned.

Well it's not the plugs. I'm getting intermittent sputtering or very quick loss of power. I'm going to try the throttle position sensor since it's only a $40 part. Would the 02 sensor cause this issue?
