    Hello my 2006 street glide will stall when warm at idle. I've put the cvp carb kit in it. I used the 48 pilot jet and the 190 main, and replaced the slide with one theirs. My idle screw is out about 2 turns, I have no back fires when given throttle. I have replaced the intake seals once already to try to fix this problem with my old tune. Nothing changed. Any help would be great!

    Sounds like you may have a vacuum leak. Check the lines for cracks or just plain poor connections.

    Fire it up and get it warm, set idle at 1500 using the throttle stop, then take an UNLIT propane hand held tank, open and let gas go out and do it around the intake and carb, see if idle changes, if so, you have a leak, if the propane isn't to your approval, carb cleaner, wd-40 stuff like that will do well, but they leave a bit of a mess to clean....
