1985 V150 XR-2 (S/N - OA961069). Symptoms: Will not get up

Customer Question

1985 V150 XR-2 (S/N - OA961069).
Will not get up on a plane. Bogs down under a load. Starts, idles, and runs at trolling speed smoothly. Pumping the fuel line ball has no effect during bog down.
I have done the following:
Pulled and checked jets in top carb (spotless).
Replaced stator, and both switch boxes (no effect).
Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Mike. My name is Tan.

Have you checked for spark on all cylinders and done a compression test?
