HONDA 2.3HP Outboard Motor - how noisy

greenwing, Jan 27, 2:59am
Hope I'm in the right category, there's nothing for boating. I recently bought a used Honda 2.3HP 4 stroke outboard motor. Very happy with it but find that that it gets quite noisy from halfway point on throttle onwards.Ok for a short trip, but going any distance it gets annoying and next time I'm going to wear earmuffs. I'm wondering if I have an exhaust leak although that usually has a distintive sound which I haven't noticed - interested to hear what other 2 or 2.3HP Honda owners say about their motors.

Try the "Cars, bikes and boats" forum. The 7th one down on the dropdown list.

Must have a busted exhaust.
My 2 horse runs sweet as on full ra and makes bugger all noise.
