Clymer Boating - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

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
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

very basic carbs ! clean all jets and emulsion tube then check the float needle is clean and the tip isnt grooved , blow threw all ports etc and then refit and set the mix screw 1.5 turns out for starters then run up in a tub of water and fine tune till its happy to idle and rev up ! make of engine ??

Lean fuel mixture

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.

With or without remote control??
Disconnect the black/red wire from the CDI, if you have sparks, kill circuit shorted.
No spark: check coils
1 . The two pulser coils are located at 1 80┬░angles to each other and the
condenser and battery charge coils are also located opposite of each other
under the flywheel.
2. Remove the engine cover.
3. On models equipped with electric starters, disconnect the negative
battery cable.
4. Disconnect the connector and black ground wire.
5. On the No. 1 pulser coil, connect the digital multi meter between the
black/red wire terminal in the connector and the black ground wire. And the
No.2 coil between the white/green wire terminal in the connector and the
black ground wire. Resistance should be 260-380 ohms.
6. On the condenser charge coil, measure the resistance between the
black/red and green wires. Resistance should be between 1 70-250 ohms.
7. If the resistance reading is not within specification, replace the faulty
8. On the battery charge coil, measure the resistance between the
yellow/red and yellow wires, red and yellow wires (DT1 5MC) or the red and
yellow wires (DT15CE). Resistance should measure between 0.2 and 0.5
9. If the resistance reading is not within specification, replace the faulty
