Idling issue on 02 Yamaha 115

Recommended Posts

At low rpm's it acts like it's not getting enough gas, particularly when it's in neutral & idling. It will die but start right back up, not as bad when in gear but still touchy at 800-1000 rpm's. It runs fine the rest of the time. Anyone else experience this? Any ideas boatfixer or marine man?

I presume this is a 4 stroke?  Does it behave this way when the engine is cold and warm?  It sounds like it's only doing this when it's idling, but doesn't typically die when it's in gear?

Just asking some clarifying questions :eek:

Yes it's 4 stroke. It's worse when it's cold but does it when warm too. Only when idling & usually won't die when in gear. Thanks MM

I forgot to mention that the boat was winterized & stored earlier this week. So it might be Spring before we get back at it. We are heading back south tomorrow so I'll be away from the computer for a few days as well..

With the weather we're having we've been thinking about pulling the boat out of the shed, so I thought I would bring this thread back up. Checked the owners manual / troubleshooting section & it mentions a couple of problems with the ignition system as well as some others. Bad coil, coil wires? Could the start switch have something to do with this? I know that it wasn't working properly at times last season. Anyone else experience this? Stopped by the mechanics shop yesterday but they are still doing seasonal hours & weren't open.

    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.
