...what comes with it? Just wondering if any gauges are included or do you need to specify right from the word, go? I know the engines are NMEA compatible, but you would need to specify if you want to use those NMEA screens or just the regular analog type gauges correct?
If you are outside of the US or Canada, then BRP International works with the importers and distributors in your country. Outboards may come in different configurations and in some countries, have a prop, boat harness, controls, and a gauge or display that are included.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.
The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
