G2 Throttle Controls

Postby Wwp » Tue Aug 14, 2018 8:09 pm

I just got an E-TEC 250 G2 [engine but received] no manual.

In heavy seas, how do I switch to the side control throttle from the foot throttle?

The procedure for changing from one throttle control to another with the Evinrude E-TEC G2 does not vary depending on the sea state.

In order to switch the throttle control to the ICON II EST throttle lever from a foot pedal throttle, you typically would have an ICON Color Touch Screen control. For more information on the ICON 7.0 CTS display and smaller models, see

If your dealer did not furnish you with printed copies of the user-guide for your E-TEC G2 engine and its associated instrumentation, you can download a PDF copy online from Evinrude. For example, for the ICON Touch 7.0 CTS instrument, see
