No, you've changed the low pressure filter. There's another cartridge for the high pressure system and it needs to be changed every year or it will cause problems (it's on the back of the motor but...

Possibly air in the system still.

To bleed the system, once the reservoir is full, do not run it up and down. Use the manual release to lower the motor and let it sit for a while to let the air...

You can test the low pressure pump by squeezing the primer bulb when the engine bogs down - if it makes a difference then the pump is failing, if it makes no difference then the pump is OK.

On the BF225 the HP fuel filter is more important than the LP filter - needs changing every 12 months (although the service schedule states 2 yearly changes). The 135 may be the same.

Pretty much max power until the boat is over the hump then ease right back - I can't see the point in pushing a load of water around.

This assumes the engine is warmed up a bit

Fuel filters are cheap, easy and should be replaced regularly regardless of engine performance.
