Sounds like you need to replace the exhaust gaskets if you replaced the exhaust or even took it off to check. these metal gaskets crush when installed.

On idea that comes to mind id it seems Harley has been having a problem with the rear brake light switch leaking, causing exactly what you describe, plus sometime fluid sprayed under pressure and smoking when sprayed on hot engine parts.
