Help Idle issue 2.0 TS CF2 engine

My Spider 2.0TS CF2 engine has a random problem to idle ok.
Occasionally the engine nearly stalls and pulses up and down a few time before the idle is fine.

I suspect the Idle Stepper Motor (ISM) to be the bugger.

Can anyone recommend where to buy a new Idle Stepper Motor without being ripped off?

Try cleaning the throttle body, before you go spending money.
Remove it, and give it a good clean out, with brake cleaner and a rag.

Also, check the flexi hose for splits.

I had a similar problem with my TS. Turned out to be a split in the rubber intake hose, right in the corrugated bit of it.
Sealed it up with some self-amalgamating tape, and problem solved.
