Service bulletins are proprietary information.

 

#2016-04S illustrates an improved method of purging the pressure sensor passageway in the case of false error codes or when installing a new pump.

Figures.  Im used to this kind of stuff from BRP.  I have a $100K piece of junk sitting at my marina just because of the engines on the back.

Re: Need Service Bulliten

Why isn't your dealer helping to fix your issues? Let us know if you are having problems with your dealer and repairing the engine(s)

 

Other outboard factories are even more strict about service bulletins if that is what you are alluding to.

Re: Need Service Bulliten

Bill:  I am at a marina with no trailer.  The marina requires outside techicians carry insurance.  None of the certified mechanics in brevard county carry the reqwuired insurance.  I did find a certified dealer in orlando that did mobile repairs.  He basically told me hes doesnt have the manpower to help me out.  I am now at one of the largest ports in the United Sates and cannot find a tech to work on my outboards?  If they were yamaha, mercury, suzuki or even dogs like Honda I would have techs falling over themselves to work on my boat.  I am willing to take a multi thousand dollar loss to switch to one of your competitors.  I did as you suggested and emailed BRP care.  They responded that they could not find a tech?  I knew that was a waste of time.  I am now actually better E-TEC mechanic than the one you have in Merritt Island.  I showed him how to fix my I-Command gauges.

Re: Need Service Bulliten

I am not sure what happened to all of the Evinrude dealers or how the net work got changed around.We have dealer problems in the Freeport Bahamas.OBS marine has to go to Abaco to get information and engines.Before they went direct to OMC and then BRP but something happened and they have to go through Abaco first.They have been a Evinrude/Johnson dealer for over 40 years and the dealer in Abaco is no where near as long.It is just frustrating that OBS has to get engines from Abaco and the price are higher in Freeport because of it. Vs before OBS could go direct.I have been a loyal Evinrude guy my whole life and still am but with a Yamaha,Mercury and a Zuke dealer in Freeport buying direct they are beetling prices Vs OBS marine and Evinrude has suffered for it.You do not see any where near the Evinrude engines in Freeport like you did.I just bought my 22 Evinrude engine I got twin 300G2s but they ran me almost $3000.00 more  then if my dealer could buy direct.It is a little bit of a hard pill to swallow that 90 miles away on a different island they are around $2500 to $3000 less for 2 engines.Nassau dealer also buys direct so not sure why BRP has this set up like this.Still love my Evinrudes but would like to see the better prices for my dealer and a lot more Evinrude back on the island.

Evinrude sales and service outside of the US and Canada is handled by the International Division of BRP. Perhaps an email to brp.care@brp.com with your serial number and contact info may give you an answer to your questions.
