Throttle Response Lag Time...

Ok so I'm new to 50cc motorcycles in general. I road my friends 50 like 5 years ago and finally decided to pick up my own. Bought a used 2008 crf50cc all stock like 3 days ago.

My issue is this, every time I give the bike gas and then let off the throttle there is like 3-4 second delay before the idle slows down again. It's not like I give it gas then let off and it immediately starts to bring the rpm's down, it like lingers... My friends bike didn't respond like that at all from what I remember. I even went back and watched some of the videos when we messed around on his bike and the bike sounds like it immediately responds rather than lingering like mine does.

I've adjusted the idle about as low as it can go with the screw on the left hand side of the bike. It's so low that I pretty much have to give it alittle gas here and there just to keep it running.

So does anyone else know what else I can adjust/fix to possibly have the throttle be more "crispy" and "precise" when I left off the gas?

Might just need to lube the throttle cable, could be causing it to stick open for a bit
