Z1000 st carbs

I have a z1000st fitted with 28 mm acceierator carbs and the problem is, if i blip the throttle from idle. It does not return to idle but stays at 3000 rpm and stays there. Only when i switch the bike off and restart the engine again does it return to idle. has any one experienced this?
