    haven't worked on one but i would bet its a clutch issue. check for proper adjustment.

    Idle speed rpms may be too high try backing off the idle a turn and see if it helps.

    The carb has an internal blockage that is causing your surging, remove and clean it out completely(carb spray and compressed air) though all the jets and passages. This should stop the erratic idle.
