idle too low? Run a couple tanks of Techron in it and see what gives. Try shifting faster, outboards like quick shifts.

Had the same problem with my 87 Johnson 90hp. I adjusted the idle up another 100 rpm, as BS sugguested, and it hasn't stalled since. Also, try 1 oz. of Yamaha "Ring Free" per 15 gallons of raw gas if you can't get to a Chevron.
