Assume you are checking the max RPM when not operating the boat? If so, might have a second tach to check the gauge is okay. Naturally, if you checked RPMs underway it would probably be a dented prop. Pete

first bit of advice
do not use e-mix fuels in outboard engines
WHY
because ethanol separates from the fuel if not used continuously so letting it stand between outings is not good
secondly ethanol is hygroscopic which means that it absorbs moisture from the air that is going in via the tank vent and that results in corroded aluminium parts and rusted fuel tanks and outboards operate in a very moisture laden environment
now for the problem
being a late model engine , it should be a 4 stroke and like any 4 stroke engine , check the timing belt/chain, crank/cam position sensors , ignition module
it is important to check all harness connections as salt water rapidly causes corrosion in electrical connections and components
have the service agent do a scan for fault codes remember this
Suzuki out board 2 stroke motors were used in the early suzuki 4x4 cars and modern 4 stroke engines are simply car engines on end

Need to know more... is it no spark? or is it no fire? -- first check spark with a spark checker or by pulling spark plug out and grounding the plug then cranking to see if it sparks... if it sparks check compression -- if you have spark and compression its most likely fuel and you need to do lower carburetor

Turn the carburetor upside down. The float should be level with the bottom of the carburetor.

Check your battery wires. If the battery disconnects even for one second or the grounds are bad then the stator has no where to put the charge and it will fry.

take it to a service shop
I suspect that you put the new motor onto old fuel lines and the rubber on the insides of the primer and hoses has not broken down and is blocking the high speed jets or affecting the fuel pump valves
if it is fuel injected , the shop will be able to read the fault codes to find the faulty sensor

Replace it. They are just a simple contact switch . Go to the local auto parts store and pick one uo.
