I originally looked at second hand outboards, but decided I needed reliability and a new motor was the best idea so I bought the remote version of the 9.8 hp Parsun motor, on the first and only trip out, it took 20 mins to start, then would not run up properly. Ran it for a maximum of 2 miles on 1/4 throttle as it would not rev any higher, then it would not tick over or start when hot. After inspection by local engineers, found oil leaking and one cylinder running rich fouling plugs in 2 mins… Read Full Review

Only done 15 hours (running in time) with this little outboard and No Problems at all, in fact it seems to get stronger and stronger. I have no doubt its as good quality as any outboard on the market today. Its only tradition that get you thinking otherwise.At less than AUD$1500 brand new it is half the price of the traditional heavy weights… Read Full Review

I have 9.9 4-stroke Parsun for over year-have not a single problem and paid about $1500bucks only! looks similar to Yamaha -may a bit a little louder than original Yamaha ($2500), but about 40 percent cheaper! Usally only people who had problems making bad revues, others just enjoing time on water... Before to buy Parsun, I were reading a lot other revues from around the world -people happy with them ,even in salt water… Read Full Review

Parsun four stroke?
quite frankly. basic question if buy it or not is:
will you buy outboard motor made in China?
if yes, then expect all which comes with chinese products. Mine was leaking oil right out of box, spent days on phone, several 100 bucks and got another one...which leaks too. Once it gets hot, you will never start it again until it cools down. I paddled from middle of lake plenty times. It is cheap copy of yamaha, flimsy, cheaply build, with not existing support and no parts. Why… Read Full Review

Have had a Parsun 9.9 4stroke for 3 years and have had no problems. Very easy on fuel and lots of power. Pretty much a copy of a Yamaha. Neighbor had a 2004 Yamaha and parts looked identical.. May not be as refined but for the price can't go wrong… Read Full Review

I would not buy again. The Parsun F9.9 four stroke outboard motor is a good price but I cannot recommend. Mine broke down after 3 month of use. It's been 2 month since it broke down & they did not fix it yet. They have a realy bad after sale service, they do not answer e-mail, do not answer phone call they are realy bad… Read Full Review
