Sorry you feel that way and it is clear we are not going to convince you otherwise but your post is wrong on many levels and I can tell you are unhappy, however why don't you call me and we can help you.

OK Clyde-outboards.

Here is my side as a Honda outboard user:

I fish with two Honda 90 fuel injection engines. They have a 2 year commercial warranty and within that period I must use genuine Honda parts.

Honda service kit 189.99 (Any Honda dealer)
Service charge 204.00 ( Your own website)
Service intervals 200 hours ( From My Honda owners manual)

393.99 per service per engine. That's 787.98 per service for me.

I've been doing some sums tonight because Dave said I was so wrong on so many levels......... and he was right! I had under estimated my Honda service costs.

2 years fishing (under the Honda commercial warranty) at 1500 hours per year approx with two Honda 90hp's = 15 services approx.

Unless I have made a mistake that works out at 11819.70 for service costs.

My Honda's seem expensive to service to me.

PS: Almost forgot the service kit does not include the engine oil. That's 4.5L per engine so that's 9L per service for me another 54.00

Oh and I need the pre-filters changed so that's.................... forget it, does anyone want to buy two Honda 90 fuel injection engines ? I'm thinking about changing to another manufacturer.

yes, happy to take them and you are still wrong but I notice instead of calling ( you will need to do this so that we can buy them) you just put another post on here that is still wrong.

as I asked before if you actually want to get what you think is a problem solved then please call, if however you want to just slag Honda off please feel free and I will ignore you posts.

my number once again so that I can either solve your problem or buy your engines is 0759 563 8185 oh and you can call any time from 7am-8pm 7 days a week.

Dave

Help me here! Are most modern engines reliable, I would say so.

Most other manufacturers give the commercial user a 1 year warranty.

Honda are not miles more reliable than the other outboard guys, I think their two year warranty is to put money in the dealers pocket and take it out of mines the end user.
I love your logic there...

Dave,

I have stated the facts about my Honda servicing costs on my posts.

I have never said my Honda engines are not reliable or any good or slagged them off. I have only stated that they are expensive to service.

I am not selling my engines Dave, it was just a flippant remark, you have to take it in the context it was written in.

You keep saying I'm wrong but I have stated the fact's about my Honda service costings.

If you think I'm wrong please prove what I am saying is wrong and that if I used Clyde outboards my service costs would be any less.

There's a subtle difference:

An Amateur Fisherman lies about the fish he didn't catch.

A Professional Fisherman lies about the fish he did catch.
