Honda BF35 Jet Drive

The Honda BF35 is the lightest 35 horsepower, 4-stroke engine in the world. The new erogonomically designed center mounted tiller handle provides ease of operation and improved handling. And Honda's patented non-linear rubber mounts makes the ride even more comfortable. A fuel-efficient 3-to-3 induction feature saves space and weight.

4-Stroke Design
World-renowned Honda quality combines proven reliability and superior fuel efficiency, with no oil mixing.

Center Mount Tiller
New ergonomically designed tiller handle is 8" longer and angled 5" higher for improved handling. Adjustments for throttle and steering friction allow easier control. Up-front shift, PTT switch, and engine alert lamps provide added convenience.

Power Trim/Tilt
Allows user to trim the unit for maximum performance and handling.
Trim Range: - 4° to +12°
Tilt Range: 67°

3 to 3 Induction
A lightweight, compact 3-cylinder, 3-carburetor design utilizes one carburetor per cylinder. This design is more responsive than competitive throttle bodies with long intake runners.

The result-smooth, quiet operation, along with instant throttle response and performance.

Offset Crankshaft Design
A Honda first - locates the powerhead directly over the transom pivot point, which reduces vibration. Also increases the performance and handling characteristics of the hull.

Reduced vibration with improved handling and hull maneuverability.

Lightweight 50HP
The lightest 50HP 4-stroke available on the market. Perfect for pontoons, aluminum fishing boats and the increasing bay boat markets.

PGM Ignition
A reliable microprocessor accurately controls ignition timing during start-up and across the entire RPM range, providing optimum overall operation.

Auto Start Enrichment
Just like a fuel injection system, autostart enrichment automatically adjusts the air-fuel mixture for quick, easy starting and warm-up.

Non-Linear Mounting System
Patented non-linear rubber mounts provide smoother operation at all engine speeds.

Positive Lubrication
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.

Forced Air Ventilation
Unique air intake on the top of the cowl allows cooler air to enter and warmer air to escape. The ventilation system reduces under-the-hood operating temperature, improving performance and long-term durability of the electrical components.

High Output Charging System
Standard 10 Amp charging ensures that batteries remain charged while operating electronics.

Corrosion Protection System
A patented, "Double Sealed" multi-layered paint process. Sacrificial anodes and stainless steel technology, along with waterproof connectors, all enhance corrosion protection.

Fresh Water Flushport
Flushes debris and saltwater out of the engine, extending the life of the outboard.

Easy Maintenance
Easy "screw-type" valve adjuster system requires no shims and reduces maintenance costs. Front-mounted oil filter and oil filler make for easy maintenance.

Built-In Pilot Tube
Built-in pilot tube in the gear case eliminates the need to drill holes in your boat for installation.

Gas Assist Tilt
Power-tilt function makes it easy to tilt the engine for running in shallow water, or raise it completely out of the water for protection.

Ultra Low 3 Star Carb Emissions
Environmentally friendly technology.
