Here is some pictures of the new control system. It is so light that I found I had to have considerable tension on the adjuster to stop the hammer dropping by itself in choppy water.
Due to this high tension I then found it to be notchy or sticky.
I backed the tensioner off and moved some of the excess grease into the mechanism. It's now quite smooth. But still requires high tension due to the grease.
When I have time, using a spare control I have, I'll tinker with the tensioner and likely rebuild it using fishing reel drag material.

In the last picture the tensioner adjustment runs horizontally out of the case at right side of photo. This tightens a clamp around the white plastic bush.

The ring pull off a drink can is handy for adjustment.

As far as you play offshore I’d certainly hope you have real tools!

Haha yes olypopper I carry a number of tools. I just find the ring pull is lower maintenance to keep on hand and I don't have a lot of room in front of the control box.

Reminder - there is no mechanical cables in the box that attach to the shift and throttle levers; therefore, the need for heavy throttle friction is greatly reduced. Your adjustments will be much lighter than you perceive.

We very rarely had any need to adjust friction on the control cable boxes but most every top mount binacal I have installed required adjusting to suit the driver.
One was used to hanging his visor cap on the lever, that kept backing the throttle off.
One was used to keeping his hand on the throttle when offshore and another had a radio microphone cord that came across the throttle. All just some learning curves with new technology.

What kind of engine? Maybe look @ that rather then the side mount box. Can you shift manual?

DC has the K115 so it is electronic controlled.

Good question. No guidance is given by the OP.

Perhaps one could infer from the post being in the category "Gen 2 1.9 Liter 115HO thru 150" the engine under discussion was one of those several models.

If you make the inference that the engine is as mentioned above, that is, one of several new E-TEC G2 three-cylinder 1.9-liter engines, AND you possess knowledge that all of those engines are available only with ICON II EST controls, you might infer that manual shifting of the gear case would not be possible.

I looked in the Evinrude guide to model designators, (linked below) but I don't see any explanation of the "K" nomenclature.

Cf.: http://shop.evinrude.com/media/document/ModelNumberReference.pdf

and compare in the chart "Model years 2002 and up"

I
s there a more up-to-date model designator reference document available from Evinrude so that we can better interpret the meaning of "K" in an engine model designator?

I also found a newer version of the model designator guide:

http://www.operatorsguides.brp.com/OperatorsGuidesAttachments/OwnersManuals_EJ/attach/Accessories/5008825_EN.pdf

But it stops with c.2012 models, and also does not have a K designator explanation.

HUEY--thanks for that "hot off the presses" copy of the new E-TEC model designator guide released on January 28, 2020.

Some insight into the wiring involved with the ICON II Digital Surface Side Mount Control System is given in a separate thread. Please see
