hey everyone, I have the above motor on the back of my little boat and it was running a little rough last weekend. This weekend I went to use it and it won't idle at all at any slow speeds. The only way to keep it running is at very high speed in neutral. I didn't have a chance to pull the plugs, but it is a brand new motor with probably 15 hours on it. It's a hassle to bring it in for service so, any ideas?

is it a 4stroke? If so possible low speed jet is plugged.

Check to make sure gas is good and then the spark plug. If both are good then I would make sure everything is clean. Run a tank of seafoam through it and if that dont do it get the thing looked at by your shop. Is it still under warranty? If so dont goof with it let the shop figure it out.

I can understand the desire to not want to hassle with taking it to the shop - so I would do like Northanlder said - and if it's under warranty and the sea foam doesn't do it take it to the shop let them deal with it.

I had idle/poor running issues with my 25hp, low hours. Changed the defective spark plug, all has been well since.

Same thing happened to my F50. I pulled and cleaned the idel jets and ran a tank of sea foam. Run's like new now.

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
