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.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
