'11 CVO Won't Idle

I put about 150 miles on my new CVO Road Glide with no issues, then added a PCV, 2-1-2 headpipe, and new Jackpot Touring Mufflers all from Fuel Moto. It ran great for 100+ miles, then two weeks ago I pull up to a stop with the clutch in and the engine dies at idle. Never happens again that day.
I took her out today and it dies every time the engine drops to idle. This happened after the engine reached operating temps. Doesn't matter if it's in neutral or in gear with the clutch pulled in. At all other speeds, RPM's, throttle positions the bike runs perfectly. I'm using 93 octane from a known source.
I've contacted Fuel Moto but won't hear an answer till next week. Is the PCV map set too lean at 0% throttle, or is it something else? Did I not tighten the nuts for the headpipes sufficiently? I did put new head pipe gaskets on when I changed out the headers. Be advised, since K&N doesn't make a replacement filter for the '11 CVO yet, I'm still using the stock S/E white paper filter.
Thanks for any help you can give.

Remove the PCV. Try and start it and see if it idles. If it does, most likely its the PCV and Fuel Moto will have to help trouble shoot after that. Just dont ride it without the PCV.
