Possible problem with outboard

Hi all,
I've got a Honda 130hp on a Coastline 6.5m and it seems to reach about 4,800-4900rpm and won't go any higher. Is this normal?
I remember on my 50hp on a 4.5m Rib that it would reach nearly 6,500rpm with no problem.
It goes on the plane very easily so doesn't seem to be struggling.
Thanks in advance for your help and roll on the weekend!

Engine revs

The max revs it should reach at WOT are between 5000-6000 revs but propellor pitch and weight distribution will affect this see this link http://www.boat-propellers.net/pitch...16a3.50hu.html also the weight being carried will load the motor. a little help maybe

Thanks for your help with that. Looks like I will investigate further. It was a Honda Media Rib so maybe they have played around with it a bit.
