Re: Loss of steering control hazard
Dear Evinrude Owner®,
This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of applicable laws and regulations. BRP is conducting a voluntary safety recall on Evinrude E-TEC G2 74° V6 (3.4 L) outboards.
Our records show that you are the owner of an outboard(s) affected by this recall.
Which models are involved?
Evinrude E-TEC G2 74° V6 (3.4 L) outboards.
What is the potential problem?
A limited number of outboards may have a steering component which is incorrectly assembled. In some circumstances, this situation may result in a loss of steering control and possibly cause serious injuries or even death.
To confirm that your VIN (Vehicle identification Number) is affected, contact your authorized Evinrude / Johnson dealer or BRP at 1-844-345-4277 Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm CST.
What should you do?
Call an authorized Evinrude dealer and make an appointment to have your outboard(s) serviced. Meanwhile, do NOT operate the outboard over 3000 RPM. Do NOT steer the outboard hard-over to port or starboard. The solution is the completion of a steering system test, and, if necessary, the replacement of the stern and swivel bracket assembly. The service will be performed at no charge to you.
