Honda Legendary Reliability

published

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.

Honda BF45

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.

BF 50

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.

No power,

Chris L.asked

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.
Cheers
