Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Honda BF115 and Honda BF130 Horsepower

    Does anyone know how the extra 15 horsepower is achecived by the Honda BF130 over the Honda BF115, it seems to an exact match in specifications. I was wondering if there is a way to get the extra 15 HP out of the BF115? I have asked several service men and they seem not know either.Thanks for any info

    the 115 and 130 are virtually alike in appearance, however the ecu is mapped differently controlling the engine. there is also some difference in the throttlebody sensor resistance which the ecu would recognize as either a 115 or 130. having been to honda school a few years i asked the same question. i tried to swap around some parts between the 2 motors and could not get the 115 to make 130 horses........good luck

          Yo Godzila, The change is in the throttle body. If you buy a throttle body with TPS for a 130 and place it on your 115 you have now become a 130. If you look at the WOT position of a 115 to a 130 you will see the difference. Better yet, Sell it and get a BF150 with VTEC and have some fun....
