Hi Idle

Good morning all.
I have been reading for a wile but this is my first post.

Was hoping one of you may could help with an issue i am having with Hi Idle.
Bike is a 2019 RG Ultra with a stage 2 kit. V&H slip ons. Has been running great for 3,000k.
Bike starts normally but when pulling up to lights or gearing down it is idling at 2,000+ . after a few seconds it will drop to around 1,000-1,100
Anyone experienced anything similar?
Engine light came on after about 200k of high idle and it started to run rough. Dealer identified this as rear O2 sensor witch will be replaced this weekend, initially they adjusted tuning but high idle returned shortly after i rode away from dealership.

Turns out the issue was a vacuum leak caused by a torn rubber gasket behind the throttle body.
