possible cause is the connector on the side of the throttle body. This connector will be facing towards the rear of the motorcycle just behind the air filter box. Disconnect it and spray a good quality switch cleaner with lubricant into the connector or use the HD contact grease and put a small amount into each contact hole. Then insert and remove the connector a couple of times before finally leaving it in position. I have got this fault a few times and this proved to be a cure.

I had a chevy celebrity that was throttle body also...went to leave a stop sign, light came on and car died and refused to run. We went to the junkyard and got a replacement throttle body for 20 dollars and installed it...it ran perfectly fine after that. Hoping your fix is as easy as ours was.

Your check engine light is on because you are not providing the proper signal that used to come from the oxygen sensors. Install the sensors in your new exhaust (yes, drill it and put them back in), then connect the wiring correctly and it will work.

this is explained in the owners manual. 3 conditions have to be met in order for the Engine Idle Temperature Management System to work. 1. speed must be below 2k/hr 2. engine temp high(exactly what i forget) 3. operator must roll back throttle to negative position until "cruise on" light is green. This indicates that the EITMS is on. Vehicles are delivered from the factory with the EITMS disabled. It can be enabled or disabled by the rider using the following procedure; 1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position and push the engine OFF/RUN switch on the right handlebar to the RUN position(do not start the motorcycle) 2. Push the throttle to the roll-off position and hold 3. After approximately 3 seconds the cruise indicator lamp will either flash green(EITMS enabled) or red (EIMTS disabled) 4. repeat the procedure as needed to enable or disable EITMS

Sounds like you've got a vacuum leak somewhere. Either your intake seals or the carb seal is leaking air. Have you replaced the air filter housing? On the Evolution and later engines, the carb is designed as a "spigot seal" type carb. In other words, it just pushes into a seal instead of bolting on like the older carbs did. This means that the carb has to be aligned correctly or an air leak can occur around the seal. The air filter assembly is what holds the carb. into the seal and aligns the carb.
If you haven't messed with the air filter assembly there is one other thing that I've seen cause this problem. Your bike has two vacuum operated devices on it. One is the VOES switch and the other is the fuel petcock. The VOES switch is part of th igniton system and the petcock is the fuel valve on the fuel tank. The vacuum comes from either the carb or the intake manifold and is routed to the devices by a vacuum hose. Make sure this hose in connected to all three locations and has no holes in it. The vacuum hose to the petcock is on the backside of the petcock and the VOES is located on the bottom of the frame top tube under the fuel tank near the carb.
I have seen the vacuum operated petcock cause a vacuum leak in at least one occasion. Normally, when they go bad they just shut the fuel off to the carb and the engine won't run. But, I did have one that caused a severe vacuum leak and the bike acted exactly like you're describing. I took the petcock out of the tank. Drain the fuel first, not easy to do with the petcock being vacuum operated. I got a large funnel and held it under the petcock while I slowly unscrewed it. Once you have the petcock out, you'll see four small screws on the back side of it where the vacuum hose connects. Remove the screws and check the diagraphm behind the plate. Be careful, there is a small spring behind the plate. Take the petcock apart carefully so you can remember how to properly reassemble it.
Personally, I would eliminate the vacuum operated petcock and replace it with a high quality manual operated petcock. Like I said earlier, if they malfunction they usually shut the fuel off to the engine. There you are, a full tank of fuel but none to the engine. I'd replace it with an original Harley unit for a 1995 or earlier bike or a high quality aftermarket unit like a Pingle.
You need to find this problem before you ride the bike too much. The lean mixture resulting from a vacuum leak will cause the engine to run very hot.
