There is NO idle speed control...
The idle speeds is automatically regulated by a valve system piloted by the ECU.
You have an eventually 'trolling speed setting' with electronic rev-counter.

Sounds like and injector problem to me. If it was a 2 stroke I'd tell you to pull the carbs and clean them ,but EFI is a whole different story. Most certaintly a fuel problem, most likely injector related, you'll most likely need to go see a marine mechanic with the proper equipment to analyze, rather than start replacing parts you may not need.

I would check your fuel lines from the tank all the way to the fuel pump. It seems that you might have a pinched line somewhere. You can also bleed the fuel rail with the schrader valve on the end of the rail. If that wont fix it then you probably have a weak fuel pump.

Check the vent on the fuel tank. That's most common. Second, check the fuel filter.

maybe try replacing the fuel filter. it is possible that it has sediment in it and needs to either be cleaned or replaced (depending on the way it works)
these marine engines are difficult to work on, you may consider taking it to an actual shop to get it fixed

1992 115 hp V4 2 stroke had carbs done last year ran great all summer but this spring (as the fish are in the river) it will not Idle. It will run great at high RPM's

The carbs on 2 strokes are always needing a little adjusting, either your plugs are somewhat foulded, carbs gummed up from setting, restriction in fuel delivery, linkage could also be biding slightly. These are the general issues, any more would require a tech to get hands on and test them. But if your savy enough to adjust the carbs, just bump the idle up a tad after you check everything out. I am guessing that this may clear up on its own, but may need a bump.

How to you properly adj a 2-stroke carb on a motorcross bike to keep from fouling the plug

Heat the bike up, give it a ride for at least 15-20 minutes. in idle, try adjusting the little black knob attached to your carburetor. This will adjust your air/fuel mixture. Adjust it little bits at a time, and then wait for a second before adjusting further (to allow the mixture to change). Pay attention the idle, and how the bike sounds. Adjusting that carburetor should help.
