Suzuki 9.9

2 posts in this topic

I've got a Suzuki 9.9 that stalls when idling in forward gear. Sits and idles fine when out of gear and runs in gear at any speed except idle. Anybody have any ideas what might be causing this? Can I just turn up the idle speed until the motor stays running in gear without causing some other problem?

Fuel delivery, carbs, fuel. I have a Johnson 9.9 4stk (a Suzuki) that use to have a hard time starting, idling, and operating at low speed. The motor had sat at the dealership for a year before I bought it and they had gassed it up when they got it, so by the time I bought it the remaining gas in the carb was old and had somewhat gummed up the works. They rebuilt the carbs under warrenty which greatly improved things. However, I periodicaly need to clean out the system so that it will troll decently. For that, I keep a 3gal gas tank on the stern of my boat with non-oxy gas mixed with a can of seafoam, some stabil, and a good dose of Johnson Carbon Guard. When my motor acts up I unplug the normal gas line, plug in the small tank with my snake oil mix, run the motor for 15 minutes or so at various throtle positions and then switch back to the other gas line. Works wonders.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
