Bob's Machine Shop nosecone is probably the most popular

Only if your surfacing the prop. If your 2 or more inches under the pad, it will slow you down.

Re: nose come for 250 HO with SLE gearcase

Because welding a nosecone on a gearcase is not an Evinrude approved procedure, according to the warranty statement and depending on circumstances, you could be denied warranty coverage on anything gearcase related.

When you modify something circumstances may change and any failure may be subject to increased scrutiny, especially if the engine history shows excessive rpm quite often, elevated temperatures, or other signs of possible racing or operating contrary to the operator's guide.

Re: nose come for 250 HO with SLE gearcase

okay, but he told me when the cone is on the warranty is gone. So if a oilfailure or emm or powerhead would break he says it will not cover it even if it is not related to the gearcase. Can you please tell me?
