Motorcycle wants to stall when coming to a stop

The other morning when i left work everything seemed fine. when i was coming up to the stop sign as soon as i pulled the clutch in to downshift my motorcycles idle dropped drastically. as long as i kept cracking the throttle it stayed running. when i got home after running slower speeds the bike idled fine. i changed the spark plugs thinking they were just getting worn out. they were fine and when i started it up, i heard a pop like a backfire. i put it up in my shed and havent touched it since because i am afraid if i go for a long ride i will be stranded somewhere. i was just wondering if this is a fuel issue or something electrical. i would like to have an idea before i take it in to get it serviced. my motorcycle is a 2006 harley-davidson dyna street bob. thanks for your time and i will look forward to hearing from you.

Hello. It may just be that your engine is a bit gunky after the winter. Do this. Go to any auto parts store and get a bottle of a fuel additive called seafoam. Pour it into the gas tank and then top off with fuel. Take it for a ride. As you ride along you will hear the engine sounding better and better. This alone should fix your problem. Joe

I have a 1994 plymouth voyager and it stalls.

I had the same problem with mine. It ended up being the catalytic converter was clogged.

Have someone get under the van and rattle (kick, hit with hammer or something) the catalytic converter. If you hear a "rattleing" sound - then that's your problem.
