155 4tec bogging after 1/2 throttle
Ran the boat this Sunday for a solid 8 hours with no issue. However on the way back to the ramp it would bog really bad if I gave it anything past half throttle, but ran fine under half. I was thinking fuel pump as the fuse had already burned up on me once; or a possible exhaust leak? But that would make it run like crap no matter where the throttle was. So I am leaning more towards the fuel pump. I have read on here of people replacing the $850 pump with a cheap one from Walbro. Is this possible with the Sportster? Any links/info on this swap would be greatly appreciated.

Try changing the plugs first. I had one go bad after 2 hours of riding.
