Kubota Engine Idling Wrong

My 99' Grasshopper has a liquid cooled Kubota gas engine. When I have the throttle on idle, the RPM's go up and down. Its been progressively getting worse. At full throttle every thing sounds normal. Any ideas?

If you choked a Smurf, what color would it turn?

I'd give my right hand , if I could be ambidextrous!

Have you tried cleaning the carb? Possibly gummed up jets. Weak spark at idle? Just a few ideas off the top of my head. What have you done or checked yet?
