Yanmar 6lya surging

My Yanmar 6lya surges at idle after a long hard run. It doesn't stall and can be accelerated normally. Any thoughts?
TIA, Tony

What's the idle rpm? If set too low it can surge. If you just barely crack throttle, does surge go away? I think these like around 700rpm as hot idle. If at 600, surge is possible.

Absolutely Correct- Normal low speed idle is 700 RPM for these engines
