06 K1200GT stalling after hours at sustained interstate speeds

Hi team, my 06 K1200GT is behaving badly after long days of sustained speed. After a few hours at interstate speeds, the engine will float at around 3k rpm for a couple of seconds when the throttle is closed. After more interstate time, itll stall completely when the throttle is closed. If I keep on the gas, it wont die.

Given a few hours turned off, itll go back to normal.

Any suggestions? Its getting frustrating that touring on my touring bike is difficult.

Had a similar problem with my 2006 K1200GT 3 months ago. Found a dense white deposit in fuel line to tank and fuel pump. Found coil packs 1 and 3 failed also taking out the oxygen sensor (raw fuel in exhaust and actually occasional flames out the pipe!). Replaced all this and spark plugs now runs like a dream.
