i pre-ordered my F9.8BMS parsun outboard from my local dealer back in october 2008 after seeing the advertisement on www.parsunoutboard.co.uk it seemed like a no brainer as the price of the parsun outboard was £1200 compared to the next best price of £1600 for a tohatsu. 1 year on here are my findings: the engine is light enough for me to carry 50yds down the beach, and it is powerful enough to get my seapro 360 airdeck inflatable on the plane with 2 adults and 2 kids (speed aprox 14mph).
i had the same fault as the other reviewer when i first got the engine stalling whn choke pushed in, took it back to my local dealer and he replaced the fuel pump diaphragm (an early common fault which has now been re- engineered i am told). since then it has been the best engine i have owned, done about 100hrs on lots of family holidays this summer.
conclusion - buy one!!!
