I-Command™
Dear Boating Enthusiast,
Congratulations on your purchase of our industry-leading Evinrude E-TEC outboard!
Your purchase comes with the full commitment and backing of the BRP Outboard
Engine team. We know your Evinrude E-TEC outboard will provide you with years of
reliable use, and we hope you will enjoy using it as much as we enjoyed designing
and building this innovative product.
You can be proud you purchased an Evinrude E-TEC outboard with the following
benefits.
EASY TO OWN & OPERATE
With your Evinrude E-TEC outboard there is no more time wasted in the shop. In fact,
you only have to bring your Evinrude E-TEC outboard in for dealer scheduled maintenance every 300 hours or every three years of normal recreational use. That's
three trips to the shop in nine years… four trips in twelve years… five trips in fifteen
years… you get the picture! And if that is not enough, with your new outboard you
will have zero oil changes, absolutely no break-in period, and a simple winterization
process that can be done at the boat ramp or in your driveway. We are proud of how
easy we have made it for you to own this outboard. Hopefully it means you will be
spending more time on the water each year.
POWER & PERFORMANCE
Evinrude E-TEC outboards have been engineered to outperform anything on the water—acceleration, top-end speed, any size, any horsepower, across the line. And for
your buddies who own a four-stroke? Well, they cannot touch our power-to-weight
ratio. And you can tell them that no four-stroke comes close to the pure power and
torque of an Evinrude E-TEC outboard.
DURABILITY / QUALITY / RELIABILITY
Fewer parts. Fewer problems. Every Evinrude E-TEC outboard component is tested
and retested for maximum performance and longer life. Parts are bigger and stronger
to work harder and last longer.
CLEAN & QUIET
You do not even have to think about emissions—anywhere in the country; anywhere
in the world. Evinrude E-TEC outboards are the only outboard marine engines to
have received a Clean Air Excellence Award from the United States Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA). The entire Evinrude E-TEC line meets or exceeds all
worldwide emission standards. We have even got 3-Star certification from the toughest of the tough: the California Air Resources Board. And thanks to the sophisticated,
acoustically tuned air intake and exhaust systems, you will not be filling the air with
a lot of noise either.
BRP is proud you have purchased this technology-leading Evinrude E-TEC outboard
engine. We thank you for your business and wish you many years of enjoyable use.
Happy Boating,
Roch Lambert
Vice President, General Manager

read, understand, and follow these comments.
This Guide should be kept in a waterproof bag
with the outboard at all times during operation. If the product ownership is transferred,
this Guide should be forwarded to the new
owners.
A responsible, educated boater will fully appreciate the pleasures of boating and will be a
safe boater. Boating Safety Classes are conducted by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, the
U.S. Power Squadron and some Red Cross
Chapters. For information about classes, call

Additionally, Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) has identified key information that
is essential to the operation of your Evinrude
E-TEC outboard.
Key information appears throughout this
Guide in gray boxes with a key above the
text. This highlighted information is a vital reference when using your outboard.
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.
WARNING
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.
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.
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.
Keep your passengers seated in seats.
The boat’s bow, gunwale, transom and
seat backs are not intended for use as
seats.
7
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.
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.
8
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.
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.
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.

OIL AND FUEL
OIL REQUIREMENTS
Evinrude/Johnson Brand Oils
Other Oils
Evinrude/Johnson outboard oils are formulated to give best engine performance while
controlling piston and combustion chamber
deposits, providing superior lubrication, and
ensuring maximum spark plug life.
The following outboard oils are recommended for use in your Evinrude E-TEC outboard:
• Evinrude/Johnson XD100;
• Evinrude/Johnson XD50; or
• Evinrude/Johnson XD30.
If Evinrude/Johnson brand oils are not available, you must use an oil that meets NMMA
TC-W3 certification standards.
Evinrude/Johnson XD100 Oil
Evinrude/Johnson XD100 oil is preferred
for your Evinrude E-TEC outboard. This
synthetic formula oil provides uncompromised lubrication and superior performance,
even in extreme conditions—especially in
cold temperatures down to 0°F (-17°C).
16
IMPORTANT: Failure to follow oil specifications could void the engine warranty if a lubrication-related failure occurs.
OILING SYSTEM
Always “top off” your oil tank prior to prolonged usage or long trips.
New outboards are programmed to use additional oil during the first two hours of operation above 2000 RPM.
IMPORTANT: When operating in conditions
under 40°F (4°C), Evinrude/Johnson XD100
oil is recommended.
When operating in conditions under 32°F
(0°C), Evinrude/Johnson XD100 oil, must be
used.

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.
Follow these instructions to ensure
safety when handing fuel:
• Always turn off the engine before fueling.
• Never permit anyone other than an
adult to refill the fuel tank.
• Do not fill the fuel tank all the way to
the top or fuel may overflow when it
expands due to heating by the sun.
• Remove portable fuel tanks from the
boat before fueling.
• Always wipe off any fuel spillage.
• 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.
• Always work in a well ventilated area.
IMPORTANT: 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 degrade the fuel system.
18
Minimum Octane
Your outboard is certified to operate on unleaded automotive gasoline with an octane
rating equal to or higher than:
• 87 (R+M)/2 AKI — Inside the U.S.
• 90 RON — Outside the U.S.
Using unleaded gasoline that contains methyl
tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) is acceptable
ONLY if the MTBE content does not exceed
15% by volume.
Alcohol Fuels
Your outboard has been designed to operate
using the specified 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 attracts and holds moisture that can
cause corrosion of metallic parts in the fuel
system.
• Alcohol blended fuel may cause engine performance problems.
Using alcohol-extended fuels is acceptable
ONLY if the alcohol content does not exceed:
• 10% ethanol by volume; or
• 5% methanol with 5% cosolvents by volume.

Connect the fuel hose to the connector.
If equipped, open vent screw on fuel tank’s filler cap.
Squeeze fuel primer bulb, outlet end up, until
firm.

007004
1. Fuel fitting
WARNING
Store fuel tanks in a well-ventilated
area, away from heat and open flame.
Prevent escape of liquid or vapors
which could accidentally ignite.
Close the filler cap vent screw, if
equipped.
Be sure the disconnected fuel hose
does not drip.
IMPORTANT: Fuel distribution hoses in the
boat must deliver fuel at the rate of flow needed by the outboard. Minimum inside diameter
of fuel hoses must be 5/16 in. (7.9 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 your Dealer.
FUEL SYSTEM PRIMING
If the outboard is run out of fuel, refill the fuel
tank and squeeze the primer bulb until firm.
Prime the electric fuel pump by first removing
the emergency stop switch clip and then pulling the rope at least two times. This will cause
the fuel pump to fill the injectors. Replace the
emergency stop switch clip and follow the
normal starting procedure.
FUEL ADDITIVES
The only fuel additives approved for use in
your Evinrude E-TEC outboard are:
• Evinrude/Johnson 2+4 Fuel Conditioner
• Evinrude/Johnson Fuel System Cleaner
Use of other fuel additives can result in
poor performance or engine damage.
Evinrude/Johnson 2+4 Fuel Conditioner will
help prevent gum and varnish deposits from
forming in fuel system components and will
remove moisture from the fuel system. It can
be used continuously and should be used
during any period when the outboard is not
being operated on a regular basis. Its use will
reduce spark plug fouling, fuel system icing,
and fuel system component deterioration.
Evinrude/Johnson Fuel System Cleaner will
help keep fuel injectors in optimal operating
condition.

ate 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.
When boating in unfamiliar, shallow, or debris-laden waters, seek information on safe
boating areas and navigation hazards from a
reliable local source. Reduce your speed and
keep a sharp lookout!
IMPORTANT: Impact damage is NOT covered by the outboard warranty.
If you hit any object:
• STOP immediately and examine the outboard for loosening of attaching hardware.
• INSPECT for damage to swivel and stern
brackets, and steering components.
• EXAMINE the boat for structural damage.
• TIGHTEN any loosened hardware.
If the collision occurred in the water, proceed
slowly to harbor. Before boating again, have
your Dealer thoroughly inspect all components.
WARNING
007021
Failure to inspect for damage after an
accident or striking an object could
result in sudden, unexpected component failure, loss of boat control, and
personal injury. Unrepaired damage
could reduce your boat and outboard’s
ability to resist future impacts.

ENGINE MONITORING
WARNING SYSTEM - S.A.F.E.
DIAGNOSTIC LEDS
This outboard is equipped with Speed Adjusting Failsafe Electronics (S.A.F.E.).
S.A.F.E. is an engine warning system controlled by the Engine Management Module
(EMM). The EMM monitors engine sensors. If
conditions which could cause permanent engine damage exist, the EMM limits engine
speed to 1200 RPM.
If engine is in S.A.F.E. mode, the outboard will
shake noticeably when accelerated above
1200 RPM.
For additional protection during severe operating conditions the EMM will shut OFF the
engine.
The Engine Management Module (EMM) has
four LED indicators located on the top corner
of the circuit board.
The LEDs provide quick reference to the status of several outboard systems.
The LEDs can be used to identify specific
warning functions of S.A.F.E. mode activation
without ending a day on the water.
CAUTION
WARNING
In the S.A.F.E. mode, the engine speed
is limited. Under certain conditions, the
engine’s limited speed may reduce
maneuverability of your boat.
The engine cover and flywheel guard
are machinery guards. Use caution
when the engine is running.
If the S.A.F.E. mode is activated and
you are unable to correct the problem,
seek assistance and/or return to safe
harbor. Serious engine damage, engine
shutoff, and/or reduced maneuverability may be imminent.
IMPORTANT: LED 1 is closest to the center
of the EMM.
To view the LEDs the engine cover must be
removed. Refer to Removing the Engine
Cover on page 17.
DO NOT wear jewelry or loose clothing.
Keep hair, hands and clothing away

ENGINE OVERHEATING
IMPORTANT: Do not run your outboard—
even for a brief start-up—without supplying
water to it. Refer to Flushing on page 50.
While boating, the outboard’s water intakes
must stay completely submerged and unobstructed. Observe proper transom height and
tilt angle. While the outboard is running, the
outboard’s water pump indicator must discharge a steady stream of water. Check the
indicator often, especially when operating in
weeds, muddy and debris-laden water, and at
extreme trim angles.

007031
1. Water intake screens
2. Water pump indicator
If the engine overheats, the S.A.F.E. (Speed
Adjusting Failsafe Electronics) mode will immediately limit the engine’s speed to 1200
RPM. If the engine was running faster than
1200 RPM when the S.A.F.E. mode activated, it will shake noticeably. The protection
system must be RESET before the engine will
operate at speeds over 1200 RPM. Under
certain conditions the EMM will shut off the
engine.
To RESET the system:
• The engine must be shut off and the cooling
temperature restored.
IF the S.A.F.E. mode activates and the
stream from the water pump indicator becomes intermittent or stops, reduce speed to
idle and:
1) Shift to NEUTRAL.
2) SHUT OFF the engine.
3) Tilt the outboard up.
4) Clean the intake screens of any blockage.
5) Clean the water pump indicator of any
blockage.
6) Lower the outboard.
7) Restart the engine and run at idle.
IF cleaning the screens and indicator does
not restore the water pump indicator’s steady
discharge, the engine will operate only in “get
home” mode. Return to harbor immediately.
See your Dealer.
IF cleaning the screens and indicator does
restore the water pump indicator’s steady
discharge, you might have to run for two minutes in NEUTRAL to allow the engine to cool.
IMPORTANT: If cooling is not restored, the
EMM will identify a progressive overheating
condition and shut off the engine. The engine
will not restart until the engine is allowed to
cool.
After any overheat causing engine shutdown,
see your Dealer for:
• Inspection of the water pump for excessive
wear or damage.
• Inspection of the thermostats.
IMPORTANT: Although the S.A.F.E. mode
can help prevent engine damage, it does not
guarantee you can run your engine indefinitely without engine damage.

ENGINE EMISSIONS INFORMATION
Maintenance, replacement, or repair of the
emission control devices and systems
may be performed by any marine SI (spark
ignition) engine repair establishments or
individual.
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
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

WARNING
The ignition system presents a serious
shock hazard. Use caution to avoid
injury from shock or injury resulting
from your reaction to shock. Do not
handle primary or secondary ignition
components while the engine is cranking or running.
On outboards equipped with an accessory electric starter, a blown fuse will not allow
the engine to start. Replace it with a fuse of
the same rating. A spare fuse is provided.
Repeated fuse failures indicate a potentially
serious problem. Do not replace it with higher
rated fuse; see your Dealer for service.
In an emergency, the engine may be ropestarted and run, this will not harm the engine.
Spark plugs should be serviced by an

SCRATCH REPAIR
Surface scratches on the upper and lower
engine covers can be polished out with buffing compound.
Treat affected areas using these steps:
1) Sand the affected area with 800-grit sandpaper.
2) Wet sand the area with 1200-grit sandpaper.
3) Using a composite material buffing compound, polish the area, closely following
the product directions.
Anti-Corrosion Anodes
Your outboard is equipped with one or more
anodes that protect it from galvanic corrosion.
Disintegration of the anode is normal and indicates it is working. Check each anode periodically. Replace anodes smaller than 2/3
their original size. See your Dealer for replacements.
IMPORTANT: Your Dealer has the professional materials to properly repair scratches.
Do not attempt to paint over marks or
scratches in the composite material. See
your Dealer to repair any deep scratches or
gouges.
007035
HULL FINISH
The condition of your boat’s bottom affects
performance. Marine growth or bottom painting may reduce speed and fuel efficiency.
For maximum performance, keep the boat’s
running surface clean by rinsing it with fresh
water and wiping it dry. Apply Evinrude anticorrosion spray to any surface subject to corrosion, but avoid the anti-corrosion anode(s).
OUTBOARD EXTERNAL FINISH
Your outboard’s upper and lower engine covers use molded-in color technology, providing a deep, durable gloss with maximum
ultraviolet (sunlight) protection.
The high gloss finish will show polish marks
when viewed closely in certain light conditions. This glossing is NORMAL.
Periodically, wash the entire boat and outboard with soapy water and apply a coat of
automotive wax. Leave the engine cover in
place when washing the outboard.
Galvanic corrosion destroys underwater metal parts and can occur in fresh or salt water;
however, salt, brackish, and polluted waters
will accelerate corrosion.
Metal-based antifouling paint on the boat or
outboard and the use of improperly installed
shore power in the area of your moored boat
will also accelerate corrosion.
IMPORTANT: NEVER paint the anode, its
fasteners, or its mounting surface. Painting
will reduce its corrosion protection.
SUBMERGED OUTBOARD
If your outboard has been under water, have
it serviced immediately upon recovery. If
immediate service is unavailable, resubmerge it in fresh water to avoid prolonged exposure to the atmosphere.
After submersion, all boat and engine electrical, fuel, and oiling systems must be inspected for signs of water intrusion. Your Dealer
should perform this service.
IMPORTANT: When trailering your outboard,
DO NOT cover the engine with canvas—it
will dull the finish of the outboard’s engine
covers.

Maintenance
TRANSPORTING THE OUTBOARD FLUSHING
If the outboard is laid down for transportation
or storage, the oiling system must be primed
before reusing the outboard. Refer to Priming the Oil System on page 17.
If desired, the outboard can be flushed after
each use on a trailer or at dockside while it is
vertical.
1) Place the outboard in an area with good
drainage.
2) Connect garden hose to flushing port.
3) Turn on the water. It is not necessary to
run the engine for a good flushing.
If the outboard is laid down for transportation
or storage, it should be laid on its back.
If the engine is transported laying on its side,
protect the motor covers, by laying it on an
old blanket or other soft cloth.

INSTALLATION
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
tiller-steered 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.
INSTALLING THE OUTBOARD
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.
Determine transom height by measuring from
the top edge of the transom, along the centerline.
1
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 58.
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.
IMPORTANT: Use an appropriate hoist to lift
the engine. Refer to Specifications on page
64 for engine weight.

3. Transom Height
Boat performance depends on outboard
mounting height.
Generally, the anti-ventilation plate of the
gearcase should align with the bottom of the
hull. Conventional V-hulls often perform well
with the anti-ventilation plate approximately 1
in. (25 mm) above the bottom of the hull.
Test outboard and boat performance at different heights until the best performance is
achieved.
IMPORTANT: Be sure that outboard water
pressure is not adversely affected by the
mounting height of the outboard.
58
X INSTALLATION
Use the supplied hardware to securely mount
the outboard.
WARNING
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.
Install the mounting bolts through the stern
brackets and transom. Install large washers
and locknuts onto bolts and tighten securely.
IMPORTANT: Follow all directions carefully.
The outboard’s warranty will not cover product damage or failure that results from incorrect outboard installation.

WARNING
Even if equipped with clamp screws,
your outboard must be bolted to the
boat to prevent it from “working off the

Service
Before servicing the battery or the outboard,
remove both battery cables from the battery,
battery negative (–) cable first. Keep metal
objects from contacting either battery post.
IMPORTANT: Service electrical components
only while the outboard is NOT running. Be
careful when identifying positive and negative
battery cables and posts.
Be alert of people in the water. Always
shift the outboard to NEUTRAL and
shut off the engine immediately when
your boat is in an area where there
might be people in the water. Serious
injury or death can result from contacting a rotating propeller or moving boat
and outboard.
WARNING
To select the correct propeller for your boating
application, your boat and outboard MUST be
water tested. See your Dealer for assistance.
Battery electrolyte is acidic — handle
with care. If electrolyte contacts any
part of the body, immediately flush with
water and seek medical attention.
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 64.
Do not use a booster battery and
jumper cables to start the outboard.
Gasoline fumes can cause explosion
and fire, resulting in property damage,
personal injury or death.
WARNING
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.
IMPORTANT: Apply Triple-Guard grease to
the entire propeller shaft before installing the
propeller. At least annually, remove the propeller and check for debris. Clean the shaft
and regrease it before reinstalling a propeller.

WARNING
Improper trim tab adjustment can
cause difficult steering.
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.

007041
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:
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.

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.
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.
Steering Friction — The steering friction
was set on your outboard at the factory. A
slight drag should be felt when turning the outboard with the steering handle. If adjustment
is necessary, turn the adjustment screw:
• Clockwise to increase friction; or
• Counterclockwise to decrease friction.

Product Information
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.
For any questions regarding your warranty rights and responsibilities or for the name and location of the
nearest authorized BRP dealer, contact BRP US Inc. / Outboard Engines Division, After Sales Support,
P.O Box 597, Sturtevant, WI 53177, 1-847-689-7090 or visit www.evinrude.com.

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
Removing the Engine Cover on page 17; see also Oil Requirements on page 16.
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 73.
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.
