Affected products

Model Number

Model Number


BBNJ-1015774 through BBNJ8013065


BBPJ-1011831 through BBPJ1013627


Due to a manufacturing issue, there may be insufficient durability for the shift actuator link rod which can cause breakage during normal operation of the outboard motor. Link breakage will lead to the inability to shift the outboard motor, which may increase the risk of crash or injury.

As of October 27, 2023 the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.
