Hi All,

Need some help with an overheat problem on my starboard suzuki 115 4 stroke.
Motor runs well at around 3000 revs with a good tell tail but as soon a i go over 4000 revs the tell tail dies and I get an overheat alarm.
If I then switch off the motor and restart the alarm goes away and the tell tail is spraying again.
The motor was recently serviced, new impeller etc..

What would cause the tell tail to stop above 4000 revs?

Did you find the problem yet? What i have heard also is if the impeller gets soft then it kind of closes under high rpm
