  • Honda 8

    Oct 26, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: gas consumption, minimal noise, tech service
    Cons: boring color scheme (silver with black)

    Summary: I purchased a Honda 8, 4 stroke, extra long shaft (25") in July 2000. I use it on a 25' full keel sailboat. My objective in purchasing it was to reduce, if not eliminate, any mechanical risk that would hinder my trip up the Hudson River and Erie ... read more

    Pros:    None
    Cons: Never buy, stay away

    Summary: Good to have some company. The BF8 outboard is in my opinion Honda's revenge on the world of boaters, for whatever crime, I don't know. Too much plastic, contorted disassembly and reassembly, even for simple maintenance. Its contraption from hell is ... read more

    Pros: Beautiful quiet running engine
    Cons: Heavy weight

  • Reliability At Sea!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fuel Consumption Reliability
    Cons: Weight! Vibration. Very Hard Starting!!!!

    Summary: 3 years ago we bought an Avon Rover 3.33 inflatable. Somehow, I got talked into this motor. After years on fast jetski's, we wanted something less "hated" at the ramps and in the water. We were also tired of $200.00 per day fuel & oil bills. We ride ... read more

    Pros: When its working, does a great job.  Does alright on fuel.
    Cons: Idle issues, enough said.

    Summary: The 8hp honda I have is one that my dad purchased in 1995 (the motor itself is a mid to late 80's model (1986?) ) and we've never had good luck with it despite regular care and light usage.  The biggest problem is the idle, it ... read more

    Pros: Lightweight
    Cons: Noisy. Hard starting. Didn't work the first time I used it. Hard

    Summary: I bought a new 2008 Honda 2hp outboard and the first time I used it, it would not idle. I took it to a Honda dealer in the area where I was using it. They charged me $75 to "adjust the idle" and said that it wasn't a warranty issue. The motor is ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: I would not recommend this product. I'm thinking of going with a Tohatsu

    Summary: I also have great difficulty with my 2003 HONDA 8hp 4 stroke. I have less than 30 hrs on it. The dealer I bought it from and calls to Honda inc. seem to have fallen on deaf ears. NOTHING was ever done. I would not recommend this motor to my worst ... read more

  • Honda BF100 is now the Honda 8 HP. Uphoric

    Dec 8, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Quiet, no smoke, no mixing of oil, tool kit included, has generator built in.
    Cons: Just one thing, the weight, but if it wasnt over built it wouldnt be Honda.

    Summary: When I read the review that the Honda 8 HP was unreliable and eats gas I had to tell my story. In 1988 the Honda BF100 was what Honda sold as their 9.9. A year or two later the Horse Power was rated at the prop vs. the crank and my 9.9 is now sold as ... read more
