I have a new less than 50 hrs on it Suzuki 15hp 4 stroke on my Noe. I almost always need to have the choke out to some degree for the motor to run right. Hot cold doesn't seem to make a difference. If I put the choke all the way in the motor idles lower and when given gas seems to want to bog down or burp. As this is the first small outboard I've owned I guess I thought perhaps this was normal. The last 2 were a Merc 90 EFI and a Yamaha 175 HPDI. But after reading some of the posts here it seems this may be a problem. I must say I wish I know a little more about outboards than I do. Also would this effect my top end? I'm only getting about 21 mph with myself ( lbs) 210the wife (110 ish) 5 year old daughter (45 lbs) and a full fishing load (4 rods, small tackle box, 1 bucket of shrimp for the kid) is 21 mph about right for a noe with a 15 4 stroke? Any ideas? Thanks.
