I have a 135. I guess there may be differences for the 115, but my manual states:
"For the first hour of operation, allow the engine to warm up for 30-60 seconds.
Run the engine at varied throttle settings, the majority of the time between 3000 and 4500 rpm.
Change engine speed approximately every 2 minutes, avoid continuous operation at idle speed for more than 10 minutes. Shorts burst of full throttle for periods up to 10 seconds are acceptable.
Avoid trimming the outboard up beyoned a vertical trim position during operation.
For the next 3 hours of operation, change the engine speed every 10 minutes.
The engine automatically receives extra oil during the first hours of operation, for most boaters this will be complete in about 10 hours."
