    have you ever try checking the ignition timing?

    Two things that can cause dieseling are a lean mixture which you seem to have taken care of and a higher than normal idle speed. If the ignition timing was far enough off to cause this, the bike would run poorly other times as well. Have you checked for intake leaks ?
