Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • 2006 E-Tech 225 HO, any one have any problems with lower unit.

    Has any one out there had problems with lower unit going out on 2006 E-Tech 225 H.O. I have experienced several problems with mine. Warranty is out now, so i'm going to try aftermarket. Would really like to hear from anyone who has been through the same thing that i have, or any ideas on who to contact about aftermarket units.

      Common problem..High mounting heights,lower unit oil breaking down from exhaust heat as E-tech runs so lean,housing warps from torque and heat and if its a lighting case it warps as casting so thin. That the reason BRP came out with a housing checking tool to see if pinion and gears are in proper alignment on all the V-6 housings.
      When in doubt,Trim it out!!!

        The gears just go out about every 12 to 14 months. Don't know anything about it. The dealer just kept rebuilding it until warranty went out. Thought they just had a problem with that year model. Was hoping a good aftermarket would solve the problem.

          Call BRP customer service at 1-847-689-7090 and explain your prob to them. I can't see why the dlr just kept rebuilding it. You should have gotten a complete new g/c as there have been some probs with them from some people I've talked to.

            If you post the engine serial number we can check the warranty history on the motor.

            Normally the factory replaces a gearcase assembly when there is an internal breakage, so I find it hard to believe that it gets rebuilt by the dealer each time.

              The housing is warped and dealer hasnt checked it with tool.
