Honda 25 hp(normal?)

Recommended Posts

Bought a 2007 Honda 25 (carbed) Change all the fluids and plugs fresh gas, took it out for a trial run. Set handle to start, started good, after a little warm up run around the lake slowing, trolling, reverse, etc. After 1/2 hour and no problems went in to put it on the trailer, shut down motor got trailer ready, but when I put handle on start again it would fire once and kick out. So after about 6 try's I advanced the throttle just slightly and it started and ran, shut off and tried again on start same thing so repeated the throttle advance started again. I maybe just use to fuel injection I had before or is this a sign of something not right?

My past experience with carbed motors would say that after 1/2 hour it would need choke or a little fast idle or both. It has pretty well cooled down by then.

I may of not stated clear. I ran it for a half hour on the lake so it was warmed up, it only sat couple minutes before trying to start motor to load up, so was still warm. Cold it started with throttle on start but warm it wouldn't until I advanced throttle. I maybe just use to fuel injection.

I'm no mechanic but have spent too much time fishing in my life. Past experience of years gone by would suggest to me that every motor of that age needs it's own "special" touch. Treat it like it wants too be treated and you should be good to go.

Didn't try that much, I know when it was first started up it would do a little of that(cold) but when I was running on the lake for 1/2 hour it seemed the response was ok when stopping an starting different times. I didn't jump on it but gave pretty good throttle. What are you looking at for problem if it was hesitating?

If it starts fine advancing the throttle, why worry? As stated,all engines really do have their little "quirks" as to starting, especially 2 strokes. I have to hit the prime/start button on my electric start engine twice, with throttle partly open, or no go. Just the way it likes it. I'd suggest you just go with it, as long as it starts and runs fine.

I can live with it, was just checking to head of something happening on the lake. This is the 3rd Honda I have had through the years, had a 50 and 90 both had chokes this one has the electric enrichment system so was just wondering about it.

I hear ya. After many years of tuning /rebuilding engines, It always had to be "just right". I learned with my boat it's gonna start if I just do it the way the boat wants. crazy

    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
