2018 BF50 Honda misfire at 4000 rpm
I bought this Honda outboard because I love Honda products but with only 20 hours on it and it misfires like crazy at 4000 rpm can’t hardly hold on to the tiller handle it is ok above 4000 rpm and below 4000 most of the time but seems like I get misfires at full trotted now to bad for Honda beautiful looking but not working out Honda dealer is trying to help but can’t come to see it on the boat in operating conditions
Love my Honda
Have a 50 hp Honda on my 420 sc renegade awesome economy plenty of go for this setup top speed 52km pulled 90 kg on wakeboard and had a great day with kids ,was under load most of the day and used at best 12 litres . Fishing the next day trolling lures so quite running sounder ,charger for phones what a great motor so happy I chose a Honda
Starts first turn, awesome on fuel
I got my bf50 off eBay, fella sold it 50psi low on one cylinder without telling me, had it serviced by baymarine in Chelsea VIC and if you want brutal honesty and great work l recommend them, I have the worst luck in awful car mechanics but l was very lucky in my choice of boat mechanic, (which is 10x more important l believe).
My Honda is 21 years old and yes it's in poor condition from top to bottom but here's the thing- it starts first kick even after 2 months with no use, uses nearly no fuel even at 5900rpm for long runs and is very quiet,...
Honda Legendary Reliability
Our 2004 Honda BF 50, has been used in a fast response, commercial use operation powering a 4.5m RHIB for our sailing club for over 12 years, and has never once let us down. Would start when Mercury and Yamaha would not. Would clock 27 Knots pushing a 4.5m RHIB, and has clocked over 4000 hours, and has excellent fuel economy, 20L per 100km.
I had a Honda BF45 on my 4.1 m aluminium pontoon boat . It did 3500hrs before I sold it. What a magic motor. It pulled two biscuits with 2 x 70kg adults . Change your prop to a Solas the Honda props have no cup . I am having a new boat built now was going to put a Honda 100 on it but the service agent is limited in Dunedin N.Z so have gone for a 100 4 Stroke Merc.
I have a new BF50 that won't pull the skin of a custard. 2 kids on a biscuit and will not get them on the plane. Brother has a 30hp Yamaha pulling 2 adults. Changed prop no difference. Had it back to the dealer for checks, they say it's ok. This is my 5th outboard, properly my last Honda.

Questions & Answers
G’day guys ( or girls )
About to order 50 hp tiller steer and have been told conflicting stories by Honda dealers as to wether I can have a 60 hp tiller arm fitted to the 50 . I want the trim / tilt on the throttle . My other option is to mount t&t on gunwale , but not my preference.
Can dealer fit a 60 tiller handle to a 50 Honda as I want trim / tilt to be operated by throttle hand ? Cheers
