Bike dies while decelerating 2012 FLTRX

My bike will die when coming to a stop and then takes a few minutes to restart after this happens. When sitting at a light I have to keep the revs up as it wants to die. I took it to my mechanic who replaced an O2 sensor and said after that he couldn’t replicate it. I picked it up and it was running fine. However, after about 15 minutes it was idling between 800/1000 rpm up and down. About 5 minutes later it died when I pulled the clutch in while slowing down for a light. Any ideas?

Bike has a S&S air cleaner, fatcat and S&S 124. All have been on for 4K miles and no issues before this. Thanks.

Is it throwing codes ? Once it heats up, check for intake leaks.

Def look into this thread, this is a huge problem going around with these twin cams and people have been baffled, the sensor is not that expensive and an easy install.
