I have a chance to buy a 2004 Honda four stroke 25hp tiller for $800. It was just services at a dealer and is super clean, does anyone have any opinions on that motor? I've always owned Mercs, last year my 15hp finally gave out on my little boat.

That is a great deal. I would jump on it.

I have had a number of Honda engines - a 4, 5, 8 and 9.9. They all have been great. Very fuel efficient and quiet. I have nothing bad to say about them. IMO, significantly better than a Merc (for a small engine).

I have had two Honda 4 strokes- both 5hp. great reliable motor. change the jet and it will run amazing. if you are going to use it as a kicker, you may have problems if you tie it in on your fuel line to the main motor. I sold one to a friend and he had to put in an aux pump to get fuel to it... that was a 5 hp motor though

Honda's are the best motors that I have ever owned. Sit all winter long and in spring they start with no issues. I would say that is a great price as Honda s carry a premium over other motors.
