    I couldn't find this in any thread so I will ask my question and hope that it hasn't been asked many times before.
    I have an 11hp Honda stationary motor that I use for various tasks and lately it won't idle properly. More specifically, once it warms up it surges from an near stall to about 1/4 throttle in a rythmic steady pulse. I realize that the governor is probably trying to compensate for something but the carb has very little adjustment.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    If you think its a Carburator issue look on Ebay I think you can buy a new one for around 40$, way cheeper than getting a Dealer to work on it
