Yamaha 130 stalls

So after solving the start up issues in my last thread, the next trip out I find myself running into yet another issue.

My engine ran fine running out to my spot but when I started to head in the engine would stall when put into gear (above 1200 rpm's) the engine idles fine. Spark plugs were replaced 3-4 months ago and I got my carb rebuilt 3-4 months ago and have ran the engine every other week since then. When I got home I emptied out my fuel-water separator and ran the engine flawless at about 2000 rpm's.

What could be my issue?

And yes the impeller is working.

    Tons of things. Fuel vent, carb obstruction, fuel pump(s), lose hose.

    Test compression I get those in the shop all the time customers think the carbs need rebuild. but what ends up happening is the heads corrode and a little hole devlopes in them and shoot a little water in the cylinder. Might be it might not be. But its an easy check and its good to know that your putting money in a motor thats worth it.

    mine was fuel pickup tube, it had a bend in it allowing the engine to run at low RPM but as soon as advance the throttle in died from lack of fuel. It was a simple fix and easy to check, I alos heard you can try popping the fuel cap to eliminate fuel vent issues.

    Did you ever replace the anti-siphon valve on top of the fuel tank? It's just a small spring loaded valve and they can get clogged with stuff from the tank, thus slowing the fuel flow.
