Love this motor..
Starts easy , even when I leave it sitting for 6mths. Puts my 4.3mtr Alloy boat up on a plane with two Large Adults in seconds. Quiet enough to enjoy a conversation , and drives for hrs on very little fuel .. would buy again in a heartbeat.
AVOID AT ALL COST
Honda has a reputation for reliability, one that is not deserved, I have owned many many outboard, Johnson, Tohatsu Mercs and Yamahas, they were all so much better than the Honda, gutless, constant fuel delivery issues, hard to start, ridiculously if it's cold weather, very heavy on fuel and always having issues.
Wow...that's all i can say about this marvel of engeneering.
Hi to all, so after considerate amount of research i ...anyway.So i started with the most what you see others have,like Mercury,Evinrude,Yamaha,Johnson and then i was thinking does Honda make outboards ?...and do they ever do !!!,well they haven't been making much progress in the outboard/marine area since 1964...since they made the Honda BG30 model...and why ?,let's start with the dealer right here in Edmonton,Alberta in Canada where my wife and i bought our 2010 14.6' Lund WC14 aluminum fishing boat,let's say the dealer is named R...... Marin...e in the west end part of the city and they mainly would like to see a Mercury motor on you brand new Lund...well i know just why.They (Lund) are owned by an outfit named Brunswisk (or so) and they own a lot of other brands.So when after much research i decided that out boat deserves not what the dealer wants but what we want,and that is the best in the industry and you should have seen the sales person's face when i said that our boat is going to be powered by a Honda,not one but two.A troling motor 2010 Honda BF2 and a 2011 Honda BF25 as a main power plant. So why Honda since they haven't improved since 1964 ?...because they don't have to,they invented 4 strokes ! A marvel of engeenering, a tad more money that Mercury,Evinrude,Tohatsu,Suzuki,Nissan,Yamaha...but Honda deserves the higher coin because they are biger than the comp.,better,more reliable period !
Questions & Answers
What type of engine oil is used in honda bf 25
Hi Stephen, my name is Dylan and I work at Honda head office. Honda Marine Oil 10W-30 is used in the BF25, as with all other engines in our range. All Honda Marine dealers should stock this oil as it is widely used in our engines. To find your local authorised Honda Marine dealer, you can visit http://dl.hondampe.com.au.
I hope this helps, and Happy Boating!
