check plugs and wires, also coil my be weak, sometimes a bad ground will cause this also and weak battery. I've had these problems before on my older Harleys that I built

I don't see how oil can cause an overheating problem. I think the service tech was screwing with the fuel/ignition map when the bike was on the dyno. Is it a F.I. engine? Lean mixture or retarded/over advanced timing will cause this, among other things. The dealer may have to eat the cost of repair if you can prove they caused the problem. An air cooled engine that overheats is gonna self destruct!! Get it checked out NOW.

Hi there , ok, sounds like your tank is not breathing properly, Check that the petrol cap seal is sealing properly , check your fuel valve and hoses and make sure they are not touching the motor anywhere, most bike operate better with the tank in not in a vacuum so make sure that the breather holes underneath are not blocked , the reason why this phenomena happens is because when the tank is full , the shear weight of the fuel forces it to come out in abundantly which satisfies its request for fuel when you nail it, once the weight is lowered so is the pressure and the fuel has no air to replace itself because the breathers are not sucking in enough air to allow the fuel to flow .

SOURCE: High Idle On Start-up.
Most fuel injected motorcycles do start up in a "fast idle" mode. Although I don't know much about fuel injection on Harleys (H-D will not tell you much about it unles you are one of their technicians), I don't think the system is equipped with an engine temp sensor. Since the crank case sensor get it's pulses from pockets cut into the outer edge of the left side flywheel half, the sensor will have oil on it.
