Mercury Racing customer support includes a comprehensive line of owners manuals andtech service manuals covering a full range of Mercury Racing outboards, sterndrives and accessories.

We’ll need to pull over the PDFs


All high performance engines require frequent maintenance and inspection schedules due to the extreme duty cycles and related stress these products endure. Owners are encouraged to follow the detailed maintenance and service schedule as written and supplied by Mercury Racing. Doing so will keep your high performance engine running at peak performance.





Mercury Racing consumer performance outboards and sterndrives are backed by limited factory warranties for recreational boating. An additional one-year limited Mercury Product Protection Plan warranty is available for the OptiMax 225 Sport XS, 250XS and 300XS outboards.

Consumer performance outboards and sterndrives, with the exception of the 525 EFI NXT, 600 SCi NXT¹® 662 SCi, 700 SCi, 850 SCi, 1075 SCi and 1200 SCi engine packages are backed by Mercury’s 3-year limited corrosion warranty.
