Default 2014 erratic idle

I recently bought a 2014 Road king 103" high output with about 1650 miles. The bike runs great but it has an erratic idle. it idles rough and will drop below 1000 rpms then up again and feels like it's lugging as the idle drops. if i shut it off, then start it again. it idles down and lugs.. after riding a bit it will idle at 1000 or so rpms but its rough.. i just had a small intake leak but it didn't really help it.. Could it be something electronic .. Anyone have this problem before or a solution to this..

The bike has true dual with 4" Bassani mufflers tuned with a screamin eagle tuner.. air breather is an Arlen Ness round open breather.. Bike runs great riding.. idle is decent after riding a bit. but if motor is off then start again it idles crappy for a bit.. i've researched online to try to find the problem. i think i'm going to have a thundermax ECM installed later.

Yeah, I had problems with a tuner and rough idle. If you have oxygen sensors in the exhaust give then a good check over mate .
