Hopefully I can explain this good enough to understand on the above motor. This all started after the opener, on opening day it ran completely fine, the next time I took it out it started doing this mid-trip.

Starts fine, idles fine. I put into gear and until I hit 3K RPM it runs real rough, when it hits 3K and above it seems like it is running just fine. Wether the motor is hot or cold it is the same result.

I have changed plugs, changed gas, sea foam, cleaned fuel filter. Removed prop just to make sure the bearings were ok and nothing wrapped in there, both fine. So I am at a loss now. All in all it is more of an annoyance but on the other side, I don't know if I am doing any sort of damage to the motor. Any suggestions would be appreciated

Have you treated it with Yamalube Ring Free? If not try that. Other wise you might have to clean the carbs and/or resink. By the way I have the exact same motor. Mine ran ruff at idle and it had some water in the carbs.

I haven't tried the Yamalube. As a weekend project is doing carb cleaning a somewhat easy task for a notch above a novice mechanic?

Can someone else chim in on this one? crazy I know how to do it, but can't explain. It shouldn't take to long to do. whistle On a different note, the ring free is some pretty spendy stuff. I use it once a year. Just follow the directions on the bottle.

If you have some basic mechanical skills, you should have no problem. Pay attention when disassembling to where things go, clean carb thoroughly, reassemble.

Make sure you count the number of turns on each carb to bottom the jets out and reset them to the same spot when you're done. If you don't the synch between the carbs will be out of adjustment and you could have similar symptoms.

    • Wetting a line for the 1st time today. Gonna hit it hard this weekend.
    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
