Smile 2005 Ranger xp700 sputters and chugs

Im at my wits end...i have a 2005 polaris ranger 700 xp...i have the weirdest situation with it, driving it it starts to chug and miss when i level out then , idle is fine...giving it a little gas its fine...but when i level out and have throttle at about 8 to 10 mph it sputters ..if you keep your foot on gas leveled out it back fires a little sometimes.....But the thing i cant figure out is it runs PERFECT if pull off the spark plug wire from the coil about a quarter of an inch...i call it hot sparking it....if i do that its runs like brand new...then after a few weeks from driving it it will miss and chug again and i move the spark plug wire again of the coil a little (vibrated up or down from driving) then it runs perfect again...i just replaced the plugs,m spark plug wires and coil..all new parts and still does it...its the weirdest thing polaris has no idea what wrong with it so thought i would come here..thanks lucy

I think the spark thing may be a distraction and have nothing to do with the real problem, which is likely to be fuel related. Most rough-running problems are. I would use some fuel additive (I like B12 Chemtool) in the tank.
