I have a suzuki...

I have a suzuki dt 150 efi that wont rev past 3660 rpm. If I push the throttle any farther it dies.

Motor revs fine in reverse, but not in forward gear. Seams to have fuel, primer bulb is hard. Compression is all 125 cranking cold. New plugs, all cylinders have spark

Just wondering a couple of things to get started; Do you know the Engine Hours and service history?

How did the fuel look and All the fuel filters?

Are you able to connect to a portable fuel tank and go for a run to isolate a possible problem with the boats fuel supply?

Also, are you able to tie the boat to the dock, put it in forward gear and perform a cylinder drop test? Alternately disconnect each Fuel Injector and listen for RPM drop and bump back up again when reconnected. If there is no RPM change while performing this test, it means that cylinder is working improperly and we can take it from there.

I would normally have the injectors cleaned every 500 to 750 hours of operation, depending on fuel quality.

Regards,

Matt

If possible... It would be ideal to check the fuel pressure at the High Pressure Rail. There will be a schrader valve to connect the gauge to.

I have already isolated the fuel supply that didn't affect it. Fuel filter are all changed and good. I haven't been able to t into fuel supply yet. Every plug I have pulled off you can hear the difference in load. I already tried that when I did compression to make sure they were all hitting.
