Sounds like you may have an intake leak. with the bike running spray a little starting fluid on the intake manifold but make sure you dont spray it into the back of air cleaner as this will give you a false reading. if the idle changes when you spray starting fluid on the intake manifold then you have an intake leak and need to replace the intake manifold gaskets. God luck let me know what you find

You have a cv carb. go to denniskirk.com and get the carb rebuib kit.. if it keeps continuing with the running rough the only thing that can be wrong is the ignition module. this keeps your timing correct, old days it was a distributor. now electronic senor.

Rough idling 2000 carbureted heritage classic


It sounds as if you may have some partially contaminated fuel entering the carbs. About the only other thing I can imagine that would cause this is a very small vacuum leak at the point where the carbs mount. Carbs have even been known to shake loose at the air horn to main body gasket. Good luck!

How to slow fast idle in heritage softail


Sorry but you have to take it to a dealer or someone with a box that can adjust the idle speed. Your fuel injected bike is just like your car, there isn't much can as an owner can do to them anymore. It's been headed that way since 1999. The days of fixing your own motorcycle are slipping away quickly. That's why I'm keeping my old bikes. I can still work on them.

Good Luck
Steve
