Dear New Evinrude E-TEC Owner,
Thank you for your recent purchase of an Evinrude E-TEC outboard engine and welcome to the
BRP - Evinrude family! Your purchase comes with the full commitment and support of the BRP
Evinrude outboard engine team. We are confident that your new engine will provide you and your
family with years of fun and time on the water
Power and performance…
We know that you want performance and immediate response. That's why instant throttle response and hole shot are so important. The key to your new Evinrude E-TEC outboard engine
is that every revolution is a power stroke. That means twice the power strokes of a 4-stroke. Plus
the computer-controlled engine management system delivers the perfect fuel mix directly to the
combustion chamber for hair-trigger response. The natural 2-stroke advantage combined with
our super-natural fuel injection and combustion system means that you will gain up to 23% more
torque than a comparable 4-stroke outboard engine. Simply stated - more torque, instant throttle
response, less weight, and more power - Evinrude E-TEC will deliver.
In addition, Evinrude E-TEC outboard engines require no dealer scheduled maintenance for
three years or 300 hours. No inspections or adjustments, no changing gearcase lube, no spring
tune-ups - for a full three years, then every three years after that. This means you'll experience
more time on the water with your new Evinrude E-TEC outboard engine!
History & heritage…
Evinrude E-TEC outboard engines are manufactured in Sturtevant, Wisconsin, in a state-of-theart manufacturing facility that is less than 30 miles away from where Ole Evinrude invented the
first outboard engine more than 100 years ago. And, Evinrude is part of the BRP family of products; inclusively, over 200 years of heritage. Powerful brands including legendary names such
as Ski-Doo® snowmobiles, Sea-Doo® personal watercraft and boats, and Can-Am® off-road
and on-road products. We take pride in leveraging all of our BRP brands in a very effective way
to bring you the most innovative and expertly engineered products.
The Evinrude Club (T.E.C.) for owners like you!
As an Evinrude owner you are automatically a member of our Evinrude's owners group, T.E.C.
(The Evinrude Club). To start receiving your rewards, like parts and clothing discounts, a T.E.C.

help with assembly and operation of the product.
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.
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.
–
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.
–
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.
–
Avoid standing up or shifting weight suddenly in light weight boats.
A 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
–
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!
–
Be sure at least one of your passengers
knows how to handle your boat in case of
an emergency.
–
–
All passengers should know the location
of emergency equipment and how to use
it.
–
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.
Keep your passengers seated in seats.
The boat’s bow, gunwale, transom and
seat backs are not intended for use as
seats.
–
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.
–
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.
7
–
–
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.
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. We strongly recommend 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.
–
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.
–
When replacement parts are required,
use Evinrude/Johnson Genuine Parts or
parts with equivalent characteristics, including type, strength and material. Using substandard parts could result in
injury or product malfunction.
–
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.
–
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/
Johnson 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 Schedule on page 47.
–
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.

Operator's
Guide
This outboard has been designed for high performance
applications. Its mounting height on the transom will have a
significant effect on top speed, acceleration, and coolant
delivery. Initial installation should place the propeller shaft
centerline approximately 3.6 in. (9 cm) below the bottom of
the boat. Small vertical adjustments should then be made to
optimize performance.
Locate, read and
understand operator's
guide and all warnings.
Failure to do so could
result in serious injury.

PONTOON SERIES OUTBOARDS
A WARNING
Pontoon Series outboards are intended
to be installed ONLY on pontoon boats.
Boat hulls other than pontoons may
experience instability and steering
torque if operated above certain speeds.
If any adverse conditions occur, reduce

FUEL REQUIREMENTS
A 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
• Inspect frequently for the presence of fuel leaks or other fuel system abnormalities if you suspect the presence of alcohol in gasoline exceeds the current government regulations.
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

TILTING AND TRIM
POWER TRIM AND TILT
A WARNING
Any malfunction of the power trim and tilt unit could result in loss of shock absorber
protection if an underwater obstruction is hit. Malfunction can also result in loss of
reverse thrust capability.
Correct fluid level must be maintained to ensure operation of the impact protection
on this unit.
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 trim’s lowest position. If your
boat handles unsuitably when trimmed fully bow-down, adjust transom angle or limit the travel
of the power trim.
A 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.

Trim Angle Adjustment
Use the trim/tilt switch to adjust the outboard
position in the tilt range or trim range.
Run the boat in the water to determine the
best trim angle.
IMPORTANT: Weight distribution can affect
the performance of the boat. Distribute weight
evenly in the boat.
The boat should accelerate quickly, plane
easily, and run parallel to the surface of the
water at high speeds.
If trim position is too LOW the front of boat will
be DOWN and push water.
If trim position is too HIGH the front of boat will
be UP and bounce.

Trim
In most operating conditions, it is recommended to trim the outboard to the full down
position when accelerating. Once on plane,
trim the outboard up for best performance.
Over-trimming increases engine RPM while
decreasing speed. The best trim setting is
when the highest speed is achieved with the

IMPACT DAMAGE PROTECTION
Your outboard has a shock absorption system
designed to help withstand damage from impact with underwater objects at low to moderate speeds. High speed impacts with rigid
underwater objects like pilings or boulders
can be beyond the capability of the absorption
system. Such impacts can result in serious
damage to your outboard and injury to boat
occupants from the outboard or its parts entering the boat. Occupants can also be ejected or injured by falling against portions of the
boat as a result of rapid deceleration following
impacts.

ENGINE MONITORING
IMPORTANT: Your outboard must be
equipped with an engine monitoring system
such as I-Command, SystemCheck, or equivalent. Operating your outboard without an engine monitor will void your warranty for
failures related to monitored functions.
The engine monitoring system warns you of
conditions that could damage your outboard.
The monitoring system consists of a dashmounted gauge, a warning horn, sensors on
the engine and oil tank, and related wiring.
For I-Command and other gauges, refer to the
gauge user’s guide for gauge displays, operation, warnings, and monitoring instructions.

ENGINE MONITORING
S.A.F.E. – SPEED ADJUSTING FAILSAFE ELECTRONICS
If the EMM senses a problem could cause permanent engine damage, it will limit engine speed
to 1200 RPM. This additional protection feature is referred to as S.A.F.E. (Speed Adjusting
Failsafe Electronics). If the engine was running faster than 1200 RPM when the S.A.F.E. mode
activated, it will shake noticeably. Under certain operating conditions the EMM will shut OFF
the engine.
A WARNING
In the S.A.F.E. mode, engine speed is limited. Under certain conditions, the engine’s limited
speed may reduce maneuverability of your boat. If the S.A.F.E. mode is activated and you are

INSTALLATION
A WARNING
Your outboard must not exceed the maximum horsepower indicated on the
boat’s capacity plate. Such overpowering can cause loss of control. Contact
your Dealer or the boat’s manufacturer if
your boat lacks a capacity plate.
Boats designed for remote-steered outboards might be overpowered by a tillersteered outboard of the maximum rated
horsepower. Ask your Dealer or boat
manufacturer if you are unsure about
your boat’s suitability.
Incorrectly matched boat and outboard
transom heights can cause boat instability and loss of control. Refer to Transom
Height.
Prevent lateral movement and possible
outboard loss by using the mounting
hardware supplied or hardware of sufficient size, strength, and quality. Refer to
Installing the Outboard on page 59.
A mounting surface that is damaged or
too thin to support your outboard while
underway might fail during operation,
causing a loss of control. Be sure the
boat’s transom or mounting bracket is
structurally sound and between 1 5/8 in.
(41 mm) and 2 3/4 in. (70 mm) in thickness.
TRANSOM HEIGHT
Make sure the transom height matches the
length of the outboard to be installed.
• A 19 to 21 in. (48.3 to 53.3 cm) transom
height uses a 20 in. (50.8 cm) shaft outboard.
• The shaft length of the outboard being installed should come close to matching the
transom height of the boat.
• Refer to Specifications on page 69 for

A 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 69.
A WARNING
In dual-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
When servicing the propeller, always
shift the outboard to NEUTRAL position,
turn the key switch OFF, and twist and
remove all spark plug wires so the outboard cannot be started accidentally.
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

ADJUSTMENTS
Trim Tab
Dual standard rotation outboards —
Move both trim tabs equally and in the same
direction.
A WARNING
Improper trim tab adjustment can cause
difficult steering.
Dual outboards (one counter and one
standard rotation) — Set both trim tabs to
the center position.
A propeller will generate steering torque when
the propeller shaft is not running parallel to
the water’s surface. The trim tab is adjustable
to compensate for this steering torque.
Tilt Limiter Cam
IMPORTANT: A single trim tab adjustment
will relieve steering effort under only one set
of speed, outboard angle and load conditions.
No single adjustment can relieve steering effort under all speed, outboard angle and load
conditions. If the boat pulls to the left or right
when its load is evenly distributed, adjust the
trim tab as follows:
If your outboard contacts the boat’s motor well
while tilting, adjust the tilt limiter cam to limit
maximum tilt-up.
With the outboard shut OFF, loosen the trim
tab screw. If the boat pulled to the right, move
the rear of the trim tab slightly to the right. If
the boat pulled to the left, move the rear of the
trim tab slightly to the left.
DR5157
Place the outboard in its normal operating position. Rotate the tilt limiter cam — pull its tab
forward and up to REDUCE the amount of tilt
UP.

Check your adjustment — tilt the outboard fully and adjust further, if necessary. Return the
outboard to vertical position for each adjustment, and repeat your check after each adjustment.
A WARNING
1. Trim tab screw
DR5158
Tighten the trim tab screw to a torque of 35-40
ft. lbs. (47-54 N·m).
Test the boat and, if needed, repeat the procedure until steering effort is as equal as possible.
Adjusting the tilt limiter cam will NOT
prevent the outboard from tilting fully
and contacting the motor well if the
gearcase hits an object at high speed.
Such contact could damage the outboard and boat and injure boat occupants.
High outboard installations — The
trim
tab might be above the water when the outboard is trimmed out. Steering effort might increase. Steering effort will be reduced if you
trim the outboard in and submerge the trim
tab.

Product Information
CALIFORNIA EMISSION CONTROL
WARRANTY STATEMENT
Your Evinrude E-TEC outboard has a special environmental label required by the California Air Resources Board. The
label has one, two, three, or four stars. A hangtag, provided with your outboard, describes the meaning of the star rating
system.
The Star Label Means Cleaner Marine Engines
The Symbol for Cleaner Marine Engines:
Cleaner Air and Water
For a healthier lifestyle and environment.
Better Fuel Economy
Burns up to 30 to 40 percent less gas and oil than conventional carbureted two-stroke engines,
saving money and resources.
Longer Emission Warranty
Protects consumer for worry free operation.
One Star – Low Emission
The one-star label identifies Personal Watercraft, Outboard, Sterndrive and Inboard engines that meet the Air Resource
Board's Personal Watercraft and Outboard marine engine 2001 exhaust emission standards. Engines meeting these
standards have 75% lower emissions than conventional carbureted two-stroke engines. These engines are equivalent to
the U.S. EPA's 2006 standards for marine engines.
Two Stars – Very Low Emission
The two-star label identifies Personal Watercraft, Outboard, Sterndrive and Inboard engines that meet the Air Resources
Board's Personal Watercraft and Outboard marine engine 2004 exhaust emission standards. Engines meeting these
standards have 20% lower emissions than One Star – Low Emission engines.
Three Stars – Ultra Low Emission
The three-star label identifies engines that meet the Air Resources Board's Personal Watercraft and Outboard marine
engine 2008 exhaust emission standards or the Sterndrive and Inboard marine engine 2003 exhaust emission standards.
Engines meeting these standards have 65% lower emissions than One Star – Low Emission engines.
Four Stars – Super Ultra Low Emission
The four-star label identifies engines that meet the Air Resources Board's Sterndrive and Inboard marine engine 2009
exhaust emission standards. Personal Watercraft and Outboard marine engines may also comply with these standards.
Engines meeting these standards have 90% lower emission than One Star – Low Emission engines.

CALIFORNIA EMISSION CONTROL WARRANTY STATEMENT
YOUR EMISSION CONTROL WARRANTY RIGHTS AND OBLIGATION
The California Air Resources Board and Bombardier Recreational Products (“BRP”) are pleased to explain the emission
control system warranty on your Evinrude E-TEC outboard. In California, new outboard engines must be designed, built,
and equipped to meet the State's stringent anti-smog standards. BRP must warrant the emission control system on your
outboard for the periods of time listed below provided there has been no abuse, neglect, or improper maintenance of your
outboard.
Your emission control system may include parts such as the carburetor or fuel injection system, the ignition system, and
catalytic converter. Also included may be hoses, belts, connectors, and other emission-related assemblies.
Where a warrantable condition exists, BRP will repair your outboard at no cost to you including diagnosis, parts, and labor
provided that such work is performed by an authorized BRP dealer.
Manufacturer's Limited Warranty Coverage
This emission limited warranty covers Evinrude outboards certified and produced by BRP for sale in California, that are
originally sold in California to a California resident, or subsequently warranty-registered to a California resident. The BRP

The BRP Operator's Guide provided contains written instructions for the proper maintenance and use of your outboard.
All emission warranty parts are warranted by BRP for the entire warranty period of the outboard, unless the part is scheduled for replacement as required maintenance in the Operator's Guide.
Emission warranty parts that are scheduled for replacement, as required maintenance, are warranted by BRP for the period of time before the first scheduled replacement date for that part. Emission warranty parts that are scheduled for regular inspection but not regular replacement are warranted by BRP for the entire warranty period of the outboard. Any
emission warranty part repaired or replaced under the terms of this warranty statement is warranted by BRP for the remainder of the warranty period of the original part. All parts replaced under this limited warranty become the property of
BRP.
Maintenance receipts and records should be transferred to each subsequent owner of the outboard.
Owner's Warranty Responsibilities
As the outboard owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required maintenance listed in your Operator's
Guide. BRP recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance on your outboard, but BRP cannot deny warranty solely for the lack of receipts or your failure to ensure the performance of all scheduled maintenance.
As the outboard owner, you should however be aware that BRP may deny you warranty coverage if your outboard or a
part has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance, or unapproved modifications.
You are responsible for presenting your outboard to an authorized BRP dealer as soon as a problem exists. The warranty
repairs will be completed in a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed 30 days.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
No dealer-scheduled maintenance for the first three years of normal recreational use? Really?
• Yes! BRP knows you want to spend your time out on the water, not servicing your Evinrude
E-TEC outboard. There are no valves to adjust, belts to service, chains to replace, or oil to
change. We do recommend pre-launch inspections of your outboard at each use and at regular intervals. Salt water applications require minimal additional inspections and lubrication.
What fuel octane is recommended for my Evinrude E-TEC outboard?
• Evinrude E-TEC outboards require a minimum octane of 87 (U.S.). Use of higher octane fuels is not harmful, but also not necessary.
What kind of oil does my Evinrude E-TEC outboard require?
• Any TC-W3RL oil may be used. The outboard can be programmed by your Dealer to run on
Evinrude/Johnson XD100 oil for lower oil consumption and reduced operating cost. Refer to
Filling the Oil Tank on page 19; see also Oil Requirements on page 18.
Do I need to mix oil into my fuel?
• No. Evinrude E-TEC outboards do not require any mixing of oil and fuel.
Where should I take my Evinrude E-TEC outboard for service?
• For repairs covered under warranty, you must take your Evinrude E-TEC outboard to an authorized dealer. BRP-approved dealers and distributors have received the necessary training to properly service your outboard. Contact BRP for an authorized Evinrude E-TEC dealer
near you.
Can I order replacement parts and accessories for my Evinrude E-TEC outboard?
• Yes. When replacement parts are required, use Evinrude/Johnson Genuine Parts or parts
with equivalent characteristics, including type, strength, and material. Using substandard
parts could result in injury or product malfunction. Your dealer can order the parts and accessories you desire.
Do I need to complete any paperwork when I move or sell my Evinrude E-TEC outboard?
• Yes. In order to maintain contact with you or the new Evinrude E-TEC owner, BRP requests
you complete the form outlining Change of Address / Change of Ownership on page 85.
This will ensure you or the new owner is made aware of any product announcements and
keep the warranty coverage up-to-date.
What do I need to do before storing my Evinrude E-TEC outboard for the winter?
• Winterization is minimal. Refer to Storage on page 51 for step-by-step instructions to store
your Evinrude E-TEC outboard for the off-season.
83
CHANGE OF ADDRESS / CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP
If your address has changed or if there has been a change of ownership, be sure to fill out and mail
the form provided on this page.
This notification is necessary for your own safety even after expiration of the original warranty, since
BRP will be in a position to contact you if correction to your outboard is required. Outside the U.S.
and Canada, this card should be sent to the Bombardier Recreational Products division where the
outboard was registered. Please contact your Dealer or Distributor.
