Installed Tiller Honda 15HP Outboard
During the installation process we fill with engine oil, check the gear box oil level, electric start(if equipped) wires get routed and installed to battery, test start and run.
Break-in period: 10 hours
Break-in operation allows the moving parts to wear-in evenly and ensures proper performance and longer outboard motor life. Avoid continuous operation at a steady speed.
First 15 Minutes:
Run the outboard motor at idling ot trolling speeds(the lowest speed possible). Use the minimum amount of throttle opening necessary to operate the boat at a safe trolling speed.
Next 45 Minutes:
Run the outboard motor up to a maximum of 2,000 to 3,000 rpm(or 10% to 30% of throttle opening). Operating time at 2,000 to 3,000 rpm should be limited to 50% of the 45 minutes.
Next 60 Minutes:
Run the outboard motor up to a maximum of 4,000 to 5,000 rpm(or 50% to 80% of throttle opening). Operating time at 4,000 to 5,000 should be limited to 50 % of the 60 minutes. Thirty-second full throttle burst are acceptable, but do not operate the motor continuously at full throttle. For boats the plane easily, bring the boat up on plane, and then reduce the throttle opening to the specified break-in setting stated above.
Next 8 hours:
Avoid continuous full throttle operation (100% throttle opening). Do not run the outboard motor at full throttle for more than 5 minutes at a time.
