xt660 tenere trouble

I've just been offered a 1995 xt660 Tenere but the problem is it just won't idle smoothly. It starts fine and runs if I keep blipping the throttle but if left alone it splutters and dies. The revs seem high enough. Does anyone know if this is a common problem or any ideas of what it may be.

Thanks for any help

Without knowing I would think a good cleaning of the carb would help. It could just be a clogged low speed jet.
