Sorry but it's now all computer controlled. So, it's fuel injected! The Harley-Davidson ESPFI system is known as a Speed/Density, Open Loop, Sequential Port Fuel Injection system, that controls both fuel flow, and spark timing.
So the motor is cold, and you turn the ignition on, flip the start/run switch to run. The first thing you hear is the in-tank fuel pump pressurizing the fuel rail. If you listen real close, you'll hear the Idle Air Control (IAC) "stepping" into position. Even if you are real fast, the ECU already knows everything it needs to know from all of the sensors. You hit the starter button, the motor begins to crank over. The ECU sees the low RPM, and quickly goes to the Cranking fuel Table, increasing the Injector pulse width, allowing more fuel to get the motor started. At the same time, the ECU tells the IAC to open, allowing enough air into the motor for start and idle. (Throttle body blade is closed). The motor starts to run, and the ECU sees the higher RPM from the Crank Postition Sensor, and switches over to the Warm-Up Enrichment Table. This table eventually decays to nothing, as the motor comes up to full operating temperature. There's too much going on to put a finger on just one thing. Need to put it on a computer and have it checked out. Clear as mud, right! I've got a 1990 1200 FXR None of the above applies to mine.

It sounds electrical and as it's a Sporty, I suggest a temperature-related dry joint opening up in the wiring. One popular candidate would be the earthing strap. It's worth checking continuity with a VOM when engine is hot. It may have a vibration crack. 66C is quite cool for a sportster oil temperature, so I guess you have this problem on every long ride? Good Luck.

If you bike is equipped with a carburetor, the idle stop screw is located at the top of the carb on the right side. Counterclockwise turn slows the idle speed.
If you bike is fuel injected, a dealer or shop will have to set the idle speed electronically.
