    I believe the OP understands that the pressure drop at idle is normal, which occurs on his 05 road glide. I think his question is, that being normal, why does his 05 Electra stay steady at 32 and not drop at idle.

    That is odd
    I have always felt 2 identical bikes have their own specific personalities

    I hope if someone put a Baisley spring in it he gets it out. The Baisley spring is a cheat it increases pressure by restricting flow. That is not a good thing at all. These engine like most engine for many years now have low draw oil pumps they are designed to drop oil pressure at low RPM's raise it at high.

    Good point, I remember when Baisley Springs were supposed to be a Great Fix .. That Idea didn't last long though ..

    Like that spinning thing you would put in the carburetor Venturi It was supposed to make the airspeed increase and break up the gas droplets. What happen if it came apart it would end up in your pistons ahhhh ,,
