We've had lots of people experience this problem. What you need to do is remove the air intake so you can see the butterfly valve in the TB. Now take some carburetor cleaner, or just simply alcohol, and a rag, and start cleaning. Clean all the black crud out of there. Work the throttle by hand so that you can clean the bottom side of the plate, and the top of the TB. Clean all that black stuff out of there, and it should solve the problem.
