    Default Honda GXV160 question

    http://haughton.com.au/honda-gxv160-n4-engine/

    Looking at buying a GXV...
    In the description says it's a 5.5HP
    Scrolling down to specs it says 4.3HP @ 3600RPM

    As Pauline Hanson would say "Please explain"

    5.5 gross
    4.3 nett
    Anything Ian says may or may not be garbage, it may also be his own opinion or it may not be his opinion at all, it may just be something he felt like stating anyone following his advice does so at their own risk and may be doing something Ian would actually advise against.
    And if you don't like what Ian has to say use the ignore function if you don't know how ask i will gladly tell you

    Don't do it. Nasty gutless boat anchors. Even wound up to 3600 rpm they struggle. Many better options ie Briggs 850 ic, Kawasaki KAI or even Hondas own gsv190.
    Cheers
