Hey, so I've got a problem where whenever I return to idle after riding around my bike won't return to regular idle. It just goes really fast. I am thinking its an air leak around the carburetor is that about right?

Greetings:

Yes you can test for an air leak by spraying carb or brake cleaner around the suspected leak and listen for RPM change.

sticking throttle?

But probably an air leak.
