Here is the deal:

88 Suzuki 150 O/B runs normal out of water. When in water it runs good in neutral, but bogs down and stalls when I put into gear. I've been able to tweak the throttle and get it into gear at 1500 rpms without stalling, but I don't want to destroy the lower unit like this. I suspect the carbs and or fuel needs to be cleaned/ adjusted. Once into gear and at 2000 rpms it will run all day until I drop down below 1500 rpms.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

i had an 87 Yam and had the same issues- could idle fine but would stall when going into gear; if I got into gear it ran fine until I dropped to low rpm's, then would stall. Needed to have the carbs cleaned and it ran fine.
