Re: Honda EU1000i Generator Being Discontinued (?)

The Honda EU1000i is NOT being discontinued. I work for Honda, and can tell you this for a fact.

Next, I just double-checked the parts catalog, and none of the fuel cap parts have been...

Re: New Honda 2.3 outboard not running

The warranty can't be "voided." It it technically and legally impossible to do that. Honda has a legal obligation to repair any factory defects, and just because you elect to try and do some repairs...

Re: New Honda 2.3 outboard not running

Sure sounds like a fuel delivery problem. Today's "modern" ethanol fuels can wreak havoc in small gas engines with carburetors that aren't used every day, and slime/gunk can form quickly, especially...

Re: Looking for pictures...

For this level of service, there's no substitute for having the real paper shop manual there to guide you. In my first post, there is a link to buy one direct from Honda (free shipping) and is money...

Re: Charging batteries

The 12V output of the Honda EU1000i is unregulated, so you must monitor the charge state of the battery. For that reason, it's probably better to use a regulated charger.

If you do ever use the...

Re: Honda Guy Here...

How about a high thrust prop on a Honda BF2.3? It clocks in at 29.5 lbs. dry, and with 0.29 gallon of fuel, that would be about 31.3 lbs. Now that's with the OEM plastic prop.

While the standard...

Re: Honda Guy Here...

Honda is no stranger to racing, but to my knowledge, has not been involved in anything on the water.

As with any major supplier to a racing effort, the payoff is in exposure and branding to...

Re: Honda Guy Here...

The jet is pretty easy to replace in most smaller outboards. I could post the procedure for the BF5 if needed.

A little off topic, but a good read here (scroll down half-way) about progress...

Re: Honda Guy Here...

Let me tackle these one at a time:

AVGAS is a leaded fuel, and is more precisely refined than regular unleaded. It has chemicals that make it last longer and it won't break down or attract water...

Re: How does a Honda Generator work?

100% correct about that.

Going by dB numbers is better than nothing. But, it's really a good idea to listen to the unit (at idle and full throttle) to see how much real irritation, fatigue, etc....

Re: How does a Honda Generator work?

Just to be sure, you're talking about the Yamaha EF2800i? Open-frame inverter model?

Generally, it's best to have more generator power than you need, because you'll often find other things to...

Re: How does a Honda Generator work?

Plugging into the 30A outlet on the Companion model EU2000i is just fine, as long as you understand it won't provide a full 30A of service when running as a single generator. Connect it to a second,...
