New guy needs help

Hi, I have just bought my first quad. It is a 1987 Kawasaki Bayou 300.
The problem I have is that when I give it some throttle and let off. It goes down to a fast idle and stays there for about five or ten seconds before it returns to slow idle so I can shift. When I start it, It will go to fast idle and stay there for a short time before it returns to slow idle. It does this with out touching the throttle or useing the choke.
The carb linkage immediately goes back to the stop on the carb, so that is not sticking. But even with the linkage on the stop the rpms are still high for some time. Any help will be very much appreciated. Thank you Fred
