View Full Version : Trim Tilt for 40hp Honda

12-01-2002, 01:46 AM
I have a 40hp Honda Electric start with gas assist tilt on it and was looking at getting trim and tilt fitted, I purchased the motor second hand ( less than 50 hrs ) at an extremely good price and got it fitted to a new hull. Lifting the motor is not a problem but would love the ability to be able to run much shallower than I'm currently able too. What's the problem ?? The cost of a genuine Trim Tilt Kit from Honda is around $2500. This is more than I'm willing to pay. I have enquired about after market Trim Tilt kits but have been told that :

1. No after market kit is available for Honda's.
2. No after market kits are available 40hp and over 4's.

Can anyone confirm or deny this, or offer any advice.
At the moment the best option appears to be sticking with the gas and fitting a good electric and deep cycle.
