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 ?
i agree glider had the same problem with my 97 1200 sportster this spring was idleing 300 rpm to high turned it back to 1000 rpm and have not had a problem since
