2006 SkiDoo 500ss - high idle

My 2006 stays at high idle (3000-3500 rpm) when you first stop after riding a while. It then drops down after 20 secs or so to 2000rpm where it should be. Any ideas what may be causing this? It does have 5000 miles on the sled but runs perfect otherwise. It also runs about 7000 rpm at 60 mph (is this high?).

Wondering if I have an air leak somewhere... However, doesn't explain why it would come down after 15-20 secs. Sticky clutch ?? What can I try to fix it?

thanks for any info !
