It is important to know these Tertiary Butyl Ether) may be used in your out-numbers when you place a parts order or if your board motor if the MTBE content is not greatermotor is stolen. than 15%. This oxygenated fuel does not contain alcohol. Gasoline/Ethanol Blends Blends of unleaded gasoline and ethanol (grain alcohol), also known as gasohol, are commer- cially available in some areas. Gasoline contain- ing a maximum of 10% ethanol may be used in your outboard motor without jeopardizing the New Outboard Motor Limited Warranty. Gasoline/Methanol Blends Blends of unleaded gasoline and methanol (wood alcohol) are also commercially available in some areas. DO NOT USE fuels containing more than 5% methanol under any circumstances.

In other states, pumps may not be clearly labeled as to the content or type of alcohol and additives. If you are not sure that the fuel you intend to use meets these requirements, check with the service station operator or the fuel suppliers. 4

NOTE: If you are not satisfied with the operation or fuel economy of your outboard motor when ENGINE OIL you are using gasoline/alcohol blends, you Using a premium quality four stroke motor oil will should switch back to unleaded gasoline increase the service life of your motor. Use only oils containing no alcohol. Be sure that any which are rated SE, SF, SG, SH or SJ under the API gasoline/alcohol blend you use has octane classification system.

Fuels containing alcohol can causepaint damage, which is not covered underwarranty. ! WARNING Gasoline is extremely flammable and toxic. Always observe the following precautions CAUTION when refuelling. The choice of engine oil is major factor affecting engine performance and life. • Never permit anyone other than an adult to refill the fuel tank. • To refill the fuel tank, always stop the motor. • Do not fill the fuel tank all the way to the top or fuel may overflow when it expands due to GEAR OIL heating by the sun. • Be careful not to spill fuel. If you do, wipe it up immediately. • Do not smoke, and keep away from open flames and sparks. • Refuel in a well ventilated area. • Avoid prolonged contact with skin and CAUTIONAlways use fresh gasoline. Gasoline kept in thefuel tank for long periods of time will produce Use SUZUKI OUTBOARD MOTOR GEAR OIL, orvarnish and gum, which can damage the engine. an equivalent high quality SAE90 hypoid gear oil. 5

Do not install an alternately tightening the clamp bracket screws by outboard motor that exceeds the maximum hand. Make sure you accurately center the motor, horsepower listed on the boats "Certification or the boat will pull to one side during operation. Plate". If you are unable to locate the "Certifi- cation Plate", consult your authorized Suzuki Marine Dealer.Proper transom height is important for good per-formance. A motor mounted on a transom that is toohigh causes the propeller to slip resulting in wastedpower or overheating. A motor mounted on atransom that is too low will increase drag, causingreduced speed. Make sure that when the motor islowered all the way down, the anti-cavitation plateis located 0 -25 mm (0 - 1.0 in) below the bottom of After installing the motor, check to make sure that steering and tilt movement are not obstructed by any part of the boat. CAUTION The motor may come off if it is held only by the clamp screws. Occasionally check the clamp screws for tightness. Run a sturdy rope or cable through the hole on the clamp bracket and fasten the ends securely to the boat. CAUTION If the anti-cavitation plate is above the water surface, this may induce overheating and the outboard motor will sustain damage. 8

To raise the bow, move the pin away from the boat. STEERING TENSION ADJUSTMENT Trim angle too large (Boat tends to "porpoise") The steering on your outboard motor should be smooth and not tight. Adjust the steering tension so that there is only a slight resistance to steering movement. To increase the steering tension, turn the steering tension adjuster A clockwise. To decrease the steering tension, turn the steering tension adjuster counterclockwise. Proper trim angleTo adjust the trim angle;1. Hold the motor in the fully tilted up position.(Refer to the TILT UP LOCK ARM section.)2. Turn the nut 1 counterclockwise. 10

Check the engine oil level through the oil level always perform an inspection as described inspection window 1 . below before you begin boating. The oil should be between the upper and lowerMake sure that you have enough fuel for the Upper limitintended run. Lower limitFuel capacity : 1.0 L (0.26/0.22 US/ NOTE: If the engine oil is contaminated or discoloured, replace with fresh engine oil (Refer to INSPEC- TION AND MAINTENANCE/Engine oil section). Seeing the window 1 , add enough oil to raise the level to the upper limit.Check the level of engine oil in the sump. To add the engine oil: 1. Remove the motor cover by unlocking the CAUTION fasteners 2 and 3 . Running the engine with insufficient oil can cause serious engine damage.To check the engine oil level: NOTE: To avoid an incorrect assessment of engine oil level, check the level only when the engine has cooled. 14

The following guidelines will explain proper break-in procedures. CAUTION Failure to follow the break-in procedures described below can result in severe engine damage. Break-in period: 10 hours3. Add the recommended engine oil until the oillevel reaches the upper limit. Break-in procedure 1. For the initial 2 hours: Allow sufficient idling time (about 5 minutes) for the engine to warm up after cold engine starting. CAUTION High rpm without sufficient warm-up may cause severe engine damage such as piston seizure. CAUTION Do not overfill, as excessive oil can damage After warming up, run the engine at idling speed or the engine. the lowest in-gear speed for about 15 minutes.
