    2001 90HP Johnson - How to adjust idle

    2001 90HP Johnson - How to adjust idle - model J90PLSIG s/nG04955132

    How do you adjust the idle on a 2001 90HP Johnson 2 stroke outboard. I am not sure where the idle screw (or mechanism) is located on that engine. I am certain it is located near the carburetors. Any help is appreciated.

    Welcome to the BBC.

    Is your idle low or are you just asking?

    Yes, the motor is idling a little low. It stalls when the motor is shifted into the forward or reverse position at first startup.
