    I had my '99 Evo FXSTC in Storage for 3 months and forgot to drain the tank. Now I'm riding again and the engine starts cuting-out and sputters around 4000+ RPM. I put in a fresh tank of premium gas, changed the plugs, it ran a little smoother, but it still cuts out.

    Can anyone suggest a fix?

    yep sea foam or dry gas or something like them.
    By the way your better off adding a little Stabil and filling you tank to the top, instead of draining it. An empty or half full tank of gas leaves room for condensation to build up and that how you get water in you gas.

    If you use Sea Foam, no need for the Stabil. Sea Foam acts as a stabilizer also. Great stuff, been using it for many years from the time you could only find it in marine stores. Now, everyone has it since it has been "found" by the masses ;- )
