Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • 2001 50 up Yamaha bogging in throttle

    My 2001 Yamaha 50 hp sometimes bogs on throttle. It's real random and occasionally when you are running at full throttle it will start slowing until you are at full throttle but only running at idle speeds. I can usually give full throttle (which will cause motor to die), restart motor and give full throttle again repeating about 3 - 4 times and the boat will take off fine. It usually idles fine but lately seems like a hard miss. I have rebuilt all three carbs, changed plugs, changed fuel line, fuel tank, battery and nothing has helped. I'm starting to think maybe coil buy am unsure. I took it to a mechanic which runs fine and throttles up great on the muffs but once in the water and under load it start acting up.

    Any ideas? All posts would be appreciated!

    Also to mention, I unplugged fuel line going to the three carbs and turned the motor over to check the fuel pump which is pumping great.

        Check compression, spark, timing, and fuel pressure/vacuum. Make sure timing is advancing to spec at WOT
        If all of that is good then you are left with carbs still

        Good possibility you had stuff break loose from inside lines or pump that plugs up jet/passage.
        He is right about link and sync, needs to be done each time carbs are reinstalled

          No, shade tree mechanic here. I just took the carbs off and never changed the linkage at all. Just put them back on like they were. I will check that this weekend.

          Would it cause this to be so random? i ask because it does not do it every time. It may run fine the trip out fishing but later in the day it will start acting up. But then again, it may do it right off the trailer. One thing i did last trip out, i only ran it at 3/4 throttle and it never bogged down while running but towards the end of the week i ran it full throttle and nearly everytime after running at full throttle for about 10 minutes it would start bogging and slow down.

          Thanks for the help.

            Thanks Captain, i will check all that and get back with you. But out of curiosity do you think it could possible be a coil going out?

            Thanks for the reply

              Sounds like you have a restriction in fuel supply and it cannot keep up with fuel needed to run at WOT. plugged vent or restricted pick up tube. Fuel pressure/vacuum test will show this.
