Welcome,


Usually one of a few things.
Spark plug going bad or loose plug wire.
Valve clearance needs adjusting 0.10mm intake-0.15mm exhaust.(004"-.006")
Idle air control circuit in throttle body has sucked some oil into
itself from the air filter.
Picture here:

Some carb cleaner spray in that idle air circuit
hole might help. It is on the air filter side
of the throttle body.
The spark plug is tough to get at. A piece of hose
on the end might help to position it
so as not to strip the threads in the engine head.
Let me know how it goes.
