90hp yamaha fizzling out

3 posts in this topic

I have a 90 4-stroke Yamaha (03) which up until this Spring has ran like a champ. This year when I put her in neutral and idle, it eventually kills. If I keep the tachometer over 10 she stays alive. When I put the throttle down it runs fine. I have it winterized every year, oil changed, stabilize the gas, etc. One of my theories was bad/old gas. I have gone through about 2 new tanks this year so far. I did put in some SeaFoam. It might be a little better- not much. A buddy said change the plugs, and if it's not better you may need some carb work. Any thoughts would help. Thanks

I believe that motor is fuel injected. You may need to have the injectors cleaned. You can run some injector cleaner through, but still may have to take it in to have them checked.

That year has the carbs, either carbs are dirty or you have a vapor leak in your supply hose (Gas), check your supply hose first.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
