Is this normal with an outboard?

Hi All,

I just picked up a 1 year old, well looked after Honda BF6 from a forum member and straightaway got it serviced from a Honda authorized dealer. Picked it up on Saturday with absolutely no issues noted and on Sunday went on my maiden voyage. First thing that struck me as soon as I started the engine was the shaking at idle. Did the usual checks i.e. engine fixed firmly on the transom, prop not loose etc. and everything seemed fine. This happened every time I started the engine although this shaking stops as soon as I increase the rev. Got home back and was flushing the outboard when I managed to take couple of videos and was wondering if this is normal/expected or there is something amiss.

Considering that it has just been serviced, I am inclined to think that the outboard is behaving normally but thought would get expert advise on here. Please see the videos below.

Any thoughts?

Single cylinder? Looks normalish to me - singles tend to jiggle a bit.

Absolutely fine. They have much more flex in the mounting rubbers of these modern small 4-stroke singles and twins than older 2-strokes so you notice the relative movement to the tiller & clamps. It's so less vibration gets through to the user/boat.

The new Mariner 9.9 I've just bought does close to the same.

It looks immaculate. Relax and just enjoy using it.

BTW quite envious of the green light...
