Honda BF30 (30HP Outboard)
INTRODUCING THE BF30 (30HP OUTBOARD)
A BREATH OF FRESH AIR
Honda’s BF30 boasts a host of innovative features, allowing you, your passengers, and the environment to breathe a little easier.
As 4-Stroke engines can run on regular unleaded petrol, there’s no need to mix oil and petrol. As a result, even at idle there’s no need to worry about unpleasant fumes that are common with inferior two-stroke engines.
On electric start models, the BF30’s Auto Start Enrichment automatically adjusts the air/fuel mixture for quick, easy starting and warm-up – just like fuel injection.
VERSATILITY AND POWER
The BF30 is a compact and lightweight powerplant that combines Honda’s world-renowned reliability with instant throttle response and extraordinarily smooth, stable and quiet operation.
This engine incorporates a number of user-friendly features that enable maximum on-water enjoyment, whether trolling in the shallows or motoring across open water.
With a compact three-cylinder, three-carburettor design utilising one carburettor per cylinder, the BF30 is more responsive than competitive throttle bodies with long intake runners.
CENTRE MOUNT TILLER
The ergonomically-designed tiller handle is longer for improved handling. Adjustments for throttle and steering friction allow easier control. Up front shift lever, PTT switch, and engine alert lamps provide added convenience.
The BF30 also features Dual Action Power Trim and Tilt. That means you’ll get better hull manoeuvrability and performance with a Trim Range of -4º to +12º and a Tilt range of 67º.
And to keep your boat in top condition, a built-in pilot tube in the gear case eliminates the need to drill holes in your boat for installation.
THE LIST OF FEATURES GOES ON AND ON
For one, a patented ‘double sealed’ multilayered paint process, sacrificial anodes and stainless steel technology, along with waterproof connectors, all enhance corrosion protection.
A 3 Inlet Cooling System provides plenty of water to maintain optimum engine temperature in all conditions, and the Fresh Water Flushpoint flushes debris and saltwater out of the engine, extending the life of the outboard.
Of course, the BF30 is also simple to keep in ship shape. An easy ‘screw-type’ valve adjuster system requires no shims and reduces maintenance costs. The front-mounted oil filter and oil filler make for easy maintenance. Throw in an industry leading 7 year domestic, non-declining warranty and a network of 100 independent dealers around Australia, and you’ve got a package that you can rely on day in, day out.
A reliable microprocessor accurately controls ignition timing during start-up and across the entire rpm range, providing optimum overall operation.
NON-LINEAR MOUNTING SYSTEM
Patented non-linear rubber mounts provide smoother operation at all engine speeds.
A crankshaft-driven, automotive-style trochoid oil pump ensures critical engine component long-term durability.
ENGINE ALERT SYSTEM
Uses visual, audio and rpm reduction circuits to alert the operator of overheating, low oil PSI and over-revving, preventing engine damage.
GAS ASSIST TILT
Gas Assist function makes it easy to tilt the engine for running in shallow water, or raise it completely out of the water for protection.
