Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Your described problem could be the battery but I am also inclined to suspect the voltage regulator. If the 'splutter' is when revving/higher RPMs, then the CDIs are cutting off possibly because of higher than normal voltage from the regulator and/or the battery is not loading the system(charging). Try charging the battery externally for at least a couple of hours, try and observe. You can also have the battery tested. If the battery checks good, accepts a charge and the bike will run normally after being charged, then the regulator must be considered.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
