My Kawasaki FD620D gas engine in my Trail Gator never idles good. It seems to run better at higher rpms. The engine gallops a lot when idling. I really cannot afford to bring into the John Deere dealer. I have changed the spark plugs and fuel filter. Anyone have suggestions? Thanks!

If what you are meaning by "gallops" is actually the rpms surging at idle, then that sounds like the idle maybe set too low or the carb has a problem in the idle circuit. You can try setting the idle up slightly and see if that makes a change. If not, pull the carb, disassemble and clean. Kind of hard to diagnose without being there. Sometimes biting the bullet and having the dealer at least look at it will save you dollars spent on parts you dont need and cant return.
