boatboy's review of Parsun F5BM Four Stroke

★★★★☆

“parsuns f5bms”

Written on: 05/05/2012 by boatboy (2 reviews written)

bought this 5 hp four stroke short shaft brand new first trip out broke down took it back and they ran it on there fuel tank and all fine. was told u should filter all fuel through a paper coffee filter as the are so fuel sensitive and and dirt will block the carb and stop running.after cleaning it was shards of red plastic from inside the external fuel tank that stopped it running not told by dealer about this so not very helpfull when miles from shore. On the plus side getting fuel return of about 3 liters an hour at full revs not had any probs since and used 30 liters so far.The engine is so light and very clean burning but quite noisy and vibrates quite harsh the build is very cheap and rubbers are looking perished in under a mounth.Its about half the price of the leading brands overall i would buy again and u pay for what u get good cheap little motor.

Adrianno's Response to boatboy's Review

Yeh same here, bought the same (5hp 4 stroke)motor yesterday, It just refused to start this morning, no matter what setting the choke and or the throttle are.
When I pull the start chord to feel the compression stroke, the resistance is very low. and really hardly noticeable.
Ok, I know, it is a 4 stroke, but the resistance is just too low.
I took it back to the shop in the afternoon and traded it in for a 2 stroke.
At least this one starts first pull
