I bought this Parsun motor in 2008 on special. I used it 2 hours in 2009, it ran except it would jolt periodically, as though the propeller was hitting something but I was in deep water, so could not be. In 2010 and 2011 I used it a few hours, same thing but kept on running. In total I did around 8-10 hours of running a low to medium speed. I maintained it as indicated in the cryptic manual provided. Checked all oils, gear and motor, and stored it as indicated. In 2012 I took it out and after… Read Full Review

Further update to my review of 30 June 2010. Engine has failed again, apparently with the same problem of fouled carb jets resulting in back firing and gradually reducing power. It's loaded on a pallet waiting for collection by Bill Higham for further repairs.
The engine has been used for over a month now. There is already corrosion starting on the tip of the skeg although the engine hasn't touched bottom. I have noticed that the hex head screws securing the powerhead to the drive housing… Read Full Review

I'll admit I was drawn by a price £300 below that of other brands like Tohatsu and Yamaha, but since it wasn't to be a primary engine and just for fun I thought it might be okay. It wasn't. The model in question is the Parsun 9.8 four-stroke 2010 model. After four hours the engine faltered and dropped to a low speed and would only idle if the choke was put on. Dealer, Bill Higham, thought it might be the oil sender or the CD unit and promptly sent the parts. However, the parts were the wrong… Read Full Review

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… Read Full Review
