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.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.
