  • DF2.5 wont idle

    Brand new Suzuki DF2.5 Will start on throttle start position, but when throttle is released and allowed to return to lowest (Idle) position it stalls out. I am not understanding the symbols on the twist throttle as it is not explained in the manual although it does show the start position. Any help would be appreciated.

    Haven't checked in for a bit... I have a '15 DF2.5. I think what you're seeing is common until the engine is fully warmed up. I run mine in a bucket roughly once a month (it's a kicker and doesn't get much use on the water)... It takes mine about 5 minutes of running (with hand on the throttle) to get to idling warmth. Have you run it out on the water? The times I do this (just to get some run hours on), it warms up quickly under load... Then it will idle fine.
