Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with? No, there is no break in mode. Is this engine a kicker/auxillary engine? Or is it the only engine on the boat? What size/length/style boat is this outboard installed on?

Are you still with me?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
it is the only motor on the boat-16ft. deep vee-about 1000lbs.however,the motor doesn't go over 3000 rpm even in neutral-no load.
Expert:  Jason replied 6 months ago.
The engines do have shift switches on them that prevents the engine from being over-reved in neutral. Was this motor installed on this boat correctly? Is it the right shaft length for the boat? Did a dealer select the correct propeller size for that engine on the boat that it's on?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
it came as a package completely installed. runs god,but cant over 3000 rpm ,under load or in neutral.
I will just take it back to dealer.
Thanks,
