    Default Flushing a BF90 (Ear muffs)

    Can I use the 'ear muff' flushing device on the Honda BF90 4Stroke? I have previously used it on my 2stroke Yamaha and it would be great if I could do the same with the Honda

    yes. That big rounf plastic grey disc on the back just under the cowling is also used for flushing the engine; although i have never used it myself.

    Note that the inlet on the back of the Honda is for *flushing*, and not for running the engine out of the water (earmiffs can be used for the latter). To use the inlet, you have to get an adapter, which Honda charges too much for. I've been told that one can get pieces at Home Depot for a homemade one, but I've never tried....MajBach and I have similar experience!
