Hi there,I'm not quite sure I understand what you're saying.If you're sitting still on the stand and you rev it up.It will come back down at an odd rate because the belt drive and momentum from the rear tire will be pushing the engine along.If that's what you're saying then it's normal.If you're riding it and let off and stop and when you come to a stop and it still takes the motor a couple seconds to idle down then the problem is the mixture isn't correct.It's too lean.You can adjust the carb to fix this by turning the mixutre screw out 1/4 turn at a time.
