About This Guide
This Operator’s Guide is an essential part of
your Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboard. It contains pertinent information which, if followed,
will provide you with a thorough understanding needed for proper operation, maintenance, care, and—above all—safety. Safety
is our first priority and it should be yours too.
It is strongly recommended you read this
Guide from cover to cover. The more you
know and understand about your Evinrude
E-TEC G2 outboard, the greater the safety
and pleasure you will get from using it. Following this recommendation will assure the completeness of the information essential to your
safety, the safety of any passengers, and other water users.
This Operator’s Guide identifies important
safety messages.
Although the mere reading of such information does not eliminate the hazard, the understanding and application of the information
will promote the correct use of your outboard
engine.

Important Safety Messages
This Operator’s Guide contains essential information to help prevent personal injury and
damage to equipment. Safety messages appear throughout this Guide in the applicable
section.
–
Remember, gasoline fumes are flammable and explosive. Always adhere to the
fueling procedure contained in this Operator’s Guide and those given to you by
the fueling station. Always verify fuel level before use and during the ride. Apply
the principle of 1/3 fuel to destination, 1/
3 back and 1/3 reserve fuel supply. Do
not carry spare fuel or flammable liquids
in any storage or engine compartments.
–
–
To fully appreciate the pleasures, enjoyment and excitement of boating there are
some basic rules that should be observed and followed by any boater.
Some rules may be new to you and others may be common sense or obvious...
irrespective, take them seriously!
Whenever running the engine, assure
there is proper ventilation to avoid the accumulation of carbon monoxide (CO),
which is odorless, colorless, and tasteless, and can lead to unconsciousness,
brain damage, or death if inhaled in sufficient concentrations. CO accumulation
can occur while docked, anchored, or underway, and in many confined areas
such as the boat cabin, cockpit, swim
platform, and heads. It can be worsened
or caused by weather, mooring and operating conditions, and other boats. Avoid
exhaust fumes from your engine or other
boats, provide proper ventilation, shut off
your engine when not needed, and be
aware of the risk of backdrafting and conditions that create CO accumulation. In
high concentrations, CO can be fatal
within minutes. Lower concentrations are
just as lethal over long periods of time.
–
Be sure at least one of your passengers –
knows how to handle your boat in case of
an emergency.
Avoid standing up or shifting weight suddenly in light weight boats.
–
All passengers should know the location
of emergency equipment and how to use
it.
–
Keep your passengers seated in seats.
The boat’s bow, gunwale, transom and
seat backs are not intended for use as
seats.
–
Know the marine traffic laws and obey –
them.
–
All safety equipment and personal floatation devices must be in good condition
and suitable for your type of boat. Always
comply with the regulations that apply to
your boat.
Insist on the use of personal floatation
devices, approved by the U.S. Coast
Guard, by all passengers when boating
conditions are hazardous, and by children and nonswimmers at all times.
Be careful! Human error is caused by many
factors: carelessness, fatigue, overload, preoccupation, unfamiliarity of operator with the
product, drugs and alcohol to name a few.
Damage to your boat and outboard can be
fixed in a short period of time, but injury or
death, has a lasting effect.
 WARNING
For your safety and the safety of others,
follow all safety warnings and recommendations. Do not disregard any of the
safety precautions and instructions.
Anyone operating your boat should first
read and understand this guide before
they operate your boat and outboard.
SAFETY MEASURES — General
5
–
–
–
Proceed with caution and at very low
speed in shallow water. Grounding or
abrupt stops may result in personal injury
or property damage. Also be alert for debris and objects in the water.
Be familiar with the waters you are operating in. The gearcase of this outboard
extends below the water surface and
could potentially come in contact with underwater obstructions. Contact with underwater obstructions may result in loss
of control and personal injury.
Respect no wake zones, rights of other
water users and the environment. As the
"skipper" and owner of a boat you are responsible for damage to other boats
caused by the wake of your boat. Allow
no one to throw refuse overboard.
–
Do not operate your boat if you are under
the influence of drugs or alcohol.
–
High performance boats have a high
power-to-weight ratio. If you are not experienced in the operation of a high performance boat, do not attempt to operate
one at, or near, its top speed until you
have gained that experience.
–
Become completely familiar with the control and operation of your boat and outboard before embarking on your first trip
or taking on a passenger(s). If you have
not had the opportunity to do so with your
Dealer, practice driving in a suitable area
and feel the response of each control. Be
familiar with all controls before applying
the throttle above idle speed. As the operator, you are in control and responsible
for safe operation.

Safety Measures — Installation and
Maintenance
–
The outboard must be correctly installed.
Failure to correctly install the outboard
could result in serious injury, death or
property damage. BRP recommends
that your Dealer install your outboard to
ensure proper installation.
–
Do not overpower your boat by using an
engine that exceeds the horsepower indicated on the boat’s capacity plate.
Overpowering could result in loss of control. If your boat has no capacity plate,
contact your Dealer or the boat’s manufacturer.
–
When replacement parts are required,
use Evinrude Genuine Parts or parts with
equivalent characteristics, including
type, strength and material. Using substandard parts could result in injury or
product malfunction.
–
Only perform service procedures which
are detailed in this Operator’s Guide. Attempting to perform maintenance or repair on your outboard if you are not
familiar with the correct service and safety procedure could cause personal injury
or death. Further information can be obtained from your authorized Evinrude
Dealer. In many instances proper tools
and training are required for certain service or repair procedures.
–
Maintain your boat and engine in top
condition at all times. Adhere to the
Maintenance & Inspection Schedule
on page 40.
–
Operate your boat and outboard prudently and have fun. Do not forget that all
persons must assist other boaters in
case of emergency.
–
Prevent injury from contact with rotating
propeller; remove propeller before flushing or before performing any maintenance.

Fuel Requirements
 WARNING
Gasoline is extremely flammable and
highly explosive under certain conditions. Follow the instructions in this section explicitly. Improper handling of fuel
could result in property damage, serious
injury or death.
Leaking fuel is a fire and explosion hazard. All parts in the fuel system should
be inspected frequently and replaced if
signs of deterioration or leakage are
found. Inspect the fuel system each time
you refuel, each time you remove the
engine cover and annually.
NOTICE
Always use fresh gasoline. Gasoline will
oxidize; the result is loss of octane, volatile compounds, and the production of
gum and varnish deposits which can
damage the fuel system.
Fuel blending varies by country and region.
Your outboard has been designed to operate
using the recommended fuels; however, be
aware of the following:
• The boat’s fuel system may have different
requirements regarding the use of alcohol
fuels. Refer to the boat’s owner guide.
• Alcohol blended fuels attract and hold moisture which may lead to fuel phase separation and can result in engine performance
problems or engine damage.
• Use of fuel containing alcohol above the
percentage specified by government regulation can result in the following problems in
outboard engines and fuel system components:
• Vapor lock or fuel starvation
• Starting and operating difficulties
• Deterioration of rubber or plastic parts
• Corrosion of metal parts
• Damage to internal engine parts
• Have your dealer inspect for fuel leaks or
other fuel system abnormalities if you suspect the presence of alcohol in gasoline exceeds the current government regulation
limits.
16
Recommended Fuel: Use unleaded gasoline with an AKI (R+M)/2 octane rating of 87,
or an RON octane rating of 90.
Use in North America
NOTICE
Do NOT use fuel from fuel pumps
labeled E85. Never experiment with other
fuels.
The use of unleaded gasoline containing alcohol above the percentage specified by government regulations is not recommended.
Use of fuel labeled E15 is prohibited by U.S.
EPA Regulations.
Use of a boat mounted water separating fuel
filter is strongly recommended.
Use Outside North America
The use of unleaded gasoline containing alcohol above the percentage specified by local
government regulations is not recommended.
Use of a boat mounted water separating fuel
filter is strongly recommended.
Fuel System Information
In the United States, the U.S. EPA requires
low permeability fuel hose, fuel primer bulbs,
portable fuel tanks and fuel caps to be used
with outboard engines.
IMPORTANT: Fuel distribution hoses in the
boat must deliver fuel at a specific flow rate.
Minimum inside diameter of fuel hoses must
be 3/8 in. (9 mm).
Fuel systems with built-in tanks, particularly
those that include antisiphon valves and filter/
primer units, may have restrictions not allowing the engine fuel pump to deliver sufficient
fuel under all conditions. This can result in a
loss of performance. If a performance problem exists, see the Service Note on page 48.
 2–STROKE ENGINE OIL AND FUEL
Fuel Hose Connections
1) If the fuel hose is disconnected for any reason, seal the hose and fitting to prevent
spillage. or contamination.
2) Connect the fuel hose to the 3/8 in. (9 mm)
fuel fitting. Fasten hose securely with the
18.5 mm clamp from owner’s kit.
Fueling Procedure
 WARNING
Fuel is flammable and explosive under
certain conditions. Follow these instructions to ensure safety when handing
fuel:
• Always work in a well ventilated area.
• Always turn off the engine before fueling.
• Never permit anyone other than an
adult to refill the fuel tank.
• Do not smoke, or allow open flames, or
sparks or use electrical devices such as
cellular phones in the vicinity of a fuel
leak or while fueling.
• When fueling, keep boat level.
• Remove portable fuel tanks from the
boat before fueling.
• Fuel tank may be pressurized, turn cap
slowly when opening.
• Do not overfill or top off the fuel tank
and leave boat in the sun. As temperature increases, fuel expands and might
overflow.
• To prevent fuel back-flow, fill the fuel
tank slowly so air can escape from tank.
• Always wipe off any fuel spillage.
Do NOT add 2–stroke engine oil to the fuel.

Trim, Tilt and Steering
Power Trim and Tilt
The trim and tilt functions of Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboards are controlled by the engine EMM.
IMPORTANT: Activating any trim button while the key switch is in the OFF position will briefly
turn on the system. This will cause the electric fuel pump to run and the remote control and
any displays or gauges to turn on. There will be a short delay before the trim system operates.
This is normal. The system will turn off after a few seconds of non-use.
 WARNING
When operating in rough water or crossing a wake, excessive bow-up trim may result
in the boat’s bow suddenly rising skyward, possibly ejecting or otherwise seriously
injuring occupants.
Some boat/outboard/propeller combinations may encounter boat instability and/or
high steering torque when operated at high speed at or near the outboard’s trim
range limits (full bow-up or bow-down). Boat stability and steering torque can also
vary due to changing water conditions. If any adverse conditions occur, reduce throttle and/or adjust trim angle to maintain control. If you experience boat instability and/
or high steering torque, see your Dealer to correct these conditions.
Some boats plow, or are difficult to plane, when operated in the lowest trim position. If your
boat handles unsuitably when trimmed fully bow-down, adjust the trim.
 WARNING
If the bow of the boat plows the water at high speeds, the boat may bow steer or spin
suddenly, possibly ejecting or otherwise seriously injuring occupants.

the water.
Weedy Water
High Altitude
Your outboard’s EMM will automatically compensate for changes in altitude. However, if
you boat above 3000 ft. (900 m), you will experience some loss of power due to reduced
air density.
If your engine drops below the recommended
RPM operating range at full throttle, have your
Dealer select a lower pitch propeller.
If you return to sea level, have your Dealer install the original propeller and verify correct
RPM operating range.

Maintenance
Engine Emissions Installation Information
A repair shop or person of the owner's choosing may maintain, replace, or repair emission
control devices and systems. These instructions do not require components or service by BRP
or authorized Evinrude dealers. Although an authorized Evinrude dealer has the in-depth technical knowledge and tools to service Evinrude outboard engines, the emission-related warranty is not conditioned on the use of an authorized Evinrude dealer or any other establishment
with which BRP has a commercial relationship.
For emission-related warranty claims, BRP is limiting the diagnosis and repair of emission-related parts to authorized Evinrude dealers. For more information, please refer to the US EPA
EMISSION-RELATED WARRANTY contained herein. Proper maintenance is the owner's responsibility. A warranty claim may be denied if, among other things, the owner or operator
caused the problem through improper maintenance or use.
You must follow the instructions for fuel requirements in the FUEL REQUIREMENTS section
of this manual. Even if gasoline containing greater than ten volume percent ethanol is readily
available, the US EPA has issued a prohibition against the use of gasoline containing greater
than 10 vol% ethanol that applies to this engine. The use of gasoline containing greater than
10 vol% ethanol with this engine may harm the emission control system.
Manufacturer’s Responsibility
Beginning with 1999 model year outboards, manufacturers of marine engines must determine
the exhaust emission levels for each engine horsepower family and certify these outboards
with the United States of America Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). An emissions control information label, showing emission levels and engine specifications, must be placed on
each outboard at the time of manufacture.
Dealer’s Responsibility
When performing service on all 1999 and more recent Evinrude outboards that carry an emissions control information label, adjustments must be kept within published factory specifications.
Replacement or repair of any emission related component must be executed in a manner that
maintains emission levels within the prescribed certification standards.
Dealers are not to modify the outboard in any manner that would alter the horsepower or allow
emission levels to exceed their predetermined factory specifications.
Exceptions include manufacturer’s prescribed changes, such as altitude adjustments, for example.
Owner Responsibility
The owner/operator is required to have engine maintenance performed to maintain emission
levels within prescribed certification standards.
The owner/operator is not to, and should not allow anyone to, modify the engine in any manner
that would alter the horsepower or allow emissions levels to exceed their predetermined factory specifications.
38
 ENGINE EMISSIONS INSTALLATION INFORMATION
Tampering with the fuel system to change horsepower or modify emission levels beyond factory settings or specifications will void the product warranty.
EPA Emission Regulations
All new 1999 and more recent Evinrude outboards manufactured by BRP are certified to the
EPA as conforming to the requirements of the regulations for the control of air pollution from
new watercraft marine spark ignition engines. This certification is contingent on certain adjustments being set to factory standards. For this reason, the factory procedure for servicing the
product must be strictly followed and, whenever practicable, returned to the original intent of
the design. The responsibilities listed above are general and in no way a complete listing of
the rules and regulations pertaining to the EPA requirements on exhaust emissions for marine
products. For more detailed information on this subject, you may contact the following locations:

Propeller
 WARNING
Propeller Selection
To select the correct propeller for your boating
application, your boat and outboard MUST be
water tested. See your Dealer for assistance.
IMPORTANT: The correct propeller for your
boat, under normal load conditions, will allow
the engine to run near the midpoint of the
RPM operating range at full throttle. Refer to
Specifications on page 56.
In multiple outboard installations, check
to make sure correct propellers are
installed on each outboard before
aggressively operating your boat. Shift
each engine individually into FORWARD
or REVERSE, at idle speed only. If the
boat moves opposite the direction indicated by the remote control handle, the
wrong propeller has been installed on
the outboard being checked.
Installation
 WARNING
When servicing the propeller, always
shift the outboard to NEUTRAL position,
turn the key switch OFF and remove the
key, so the outboard cannot be started
accidentally.
NOTICE
Apply Triple-Guard grease to the entire
propeller shaft before installing the propeller.
Slide thrust washer onto shaft with shoulder
facing aft.
Standard vs. Counter Rotation
Right-hand propellers are considered standard rotation propellers. When propelling a
boat forward, the propeller rotates in a righthand (clockwise) direction as viewed from the
rear.
Slide propeller onto shaft, engaging the
splines and seating it on the thrust bushing.
Slide spacer onto the shaft and engage the
propeller shaft splines.
Left-hand propellers are considered counter
rotation propellers. When propelling a boat
forward, the propeller rotates in a left-hand
(counterclockwise) direction as viewed from
the rear.

1. Be fit for normal use for goods similar thereto and, if applicable:
• Correspond to the description provided by the seller and have the qualities presented to the buyer
though sample or model;
• Have the qualities that a buyer may legitimately expect considering the public declarations of the seller,
the manufacturer of its representative, including in advertising or labeling; or
2. Have the characteristics mutually agreed upon as between the parties or be fit for the specific use intended by the buyer and brought to the attention of the seller and which accepted.
The action for failure to comply is prescribed after two years after delivery of the goods. The seller is responsible for the warranty for hidden defects of the good sold if such hidden defects are rendering the
good unfit for the intended use, or if they diminish its use in such a way that the buyer would not have

The Product must be purchased as new and unused by its first owner from an authorized
Evinrude® dealer ("Dealer") authorized to distribute products in the country in which the sale
occurred;
The BRP specified pre-delivery inspection process must be completed and documented and
signed by the Dealer and the purchaser ("Owner");
The Product must have undergone proper registration by a Dealer;
The Product must be purchased in the country in which the Owner resides;
Corrosion prevention devices specified in the Operation and Maintenance Manual must be in use
on the boat; and
Routine maintenance outlined in the Operator’s Guide and Service Manual must be timely
performed (including, without limitation, the replacement of sacrificial anodes, use of specified

US EPA Emission Warranty
BRP US Inc. ("BRP")* warrants to the ultimate purchaser and each subsequent purchaser that this new
engine, including all parts of its exhaust emission control system and its evaporative emission control system, meets two conditions:
1.
2.
It is designed, built, and equipped so it conforms at the time of sale to the ultimate purchaser with
the requirements of 40 CFR 1045 and 40 CFR 1060.
It is free from defects in materials and workmanship that may keep it from meeting the requirements
of 40 CFR 1045 and 40 CFR 1060.
Where a warrantable condition exists, BRP will repair or replace, as it elects, any part or component with
a defect in materials or workmanship that would increase the engine's emissions of any regulated pollutant
within the stated warranty period at no cost to the owner, including expenses related to diagnosing and
repairing or replacing emission-related parts. All defective parts replaced under this warranty become the
property of BRP.
For all emission-related warranty claims, BRP is limiting the diagnosis and repair of emission-related parts
to the authorized Evinrude dealers, unless for emergency repairs as required by item 2 of the following list.
As a certifying manufacturer, BRP will not deny emission-related warranty claims based on any of the following:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Maintenance or other service BRP or BRP's authorized facilities performed.
Engine/equipment repair work that an operator performed to correct an unsafe, emergency
condition attributable to BRP as long as the operator tries to restore the engine/equipment to its
proper configuration as soon as possible.
Any action or inaction by the operator unrelated to the warranty claim.
Maintenance that was performed more frequently than BRP specify.
Anything that is BRP fault or responsibility.
The use of any fuel that is commonly available where the equipment operates unless BRP written
maintenance instructions state that this fuel would harm the equipment's emission control system
and operators can readily find the proper fuel. See maintenance information section and fuel
requirements section.
Emission Related Warranty Period
The emission-related warranty is valid for the following period whichever comes first:
HOURS
MONTHS
Exhaust emission-related components
175
60
Evaporative emission-related components
N/A
24
66
Components Covered

Limited Applicability
As a certifying manufacturer, BRP may deny emission-related warranty claims for failures that have been
caused by the owner's or operator's improper maintenance or use, by accidents for which the manufacturer has no responsibility, or by acts of God. For example, an emission-related warranty claim need not
be honored for failures that have been directly caused by the operator's abuse of the engine/equipment
or the operator's use of the engine/equipment in a manner for which it was not designed and are not attributable to the manufacturer in anyway.
