I have a 08 mean streak with 21k miles and lately after riding the highway for about 20 miles or so and coming to stop my engine idle goes up and down then levels out but yesterday running on the highway about 70 mph traffic backed up and when I came to almost a complete stop my bike dies and wouldn't start, after pushing to the side of the road waited a minute it started. This the second time it died but the idle issue had been going on for awhile now.

not familiar with your model but sure sounds like a tank venting problem. If this should happen again, open the tank cap and listen for a whoosh of air entering...thats the tip off.

Also not familiar with the model, but this could also be moisture in the line or otherwise bad fuel.
