4. PRE-OPERATION CHECK
Be sure to check the generator on a level surface with the engine
stopped.
1. Check the engine oil level.
Using non detergent oil or 2-stroke engine oil could shorten the
engine’s service life.
Recommended oil
Use 4-stroke motor oil that meets or exceeds the requirements for API
service category SE or later (or equivalent). Always check the API
service label on the oil container to be sure it includes the letters SE or
later (or equivalent).
AMBIENT TEMPERATURE
SAE 10W-30 is recommended for general use. Other viscosities shown
in the chart may be used when the average temperature in your area is
within the indicated range.
16
Loosen the cover screw and remove the left side maintenance cover.
(see page 40 )
Remove the oil filler cap, and wipe the dipstick with a clean rag. Check
the oil level by inserting the dipstick in the filler hole without screwing
it in.
If the oil level is below the end of the dipstick, refill with recommended
oil up to the top of the oil filler neck.
Running the engine with insufficient oil can cause serious engine
damage.
The Oil Alert System will automatically stop the engine before the oil
level falls below the safe limit. However, to avoid the inconvenience of
an unexpected shutdown, it is still advisable to visually inspect the oil
level regularly.

2. Check the fuel level.
Check the fuel level. Refill the fuel tank if the fuel level is low.
After refueling, tighten the fuel filler cap securely.
Use automotive unleaded gasoline with a Research Octane Number of
91 or higher (a Pump Octane Number of 86 or higher).
Never use stale or contaminated gasoline or an oil/gasoline mixture.
Avoid getting dirt or water in the fuel tank.
Gasoline is extremely flammable and is explosive under certain
conditions.
Refuel in a well ventilated area with the engine stopped. Do not
smoke or allow flames or sparks in the area where the engine is
refueled or where gasoline is stored.
Do not overfill the fuel tank (there should be no fuel above the
upper limit mark). After refueling, make sure the fuel filler cap is
closed properly and securely.
Be careful not to spill fuel when refueling. Spilled fuel or fuel vapor
may ignite. If any fuel is spilled, make sure the area is dry before
starting the engine.
Avoid repeated or prolonged contact with skin or breathing of
vapor.
KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.

Gasoline spoils very quickly depending on factors such as light
exposure, temperature and time.
In worst cases, gasoline can be contaminated within 30 days.
Using contaminated gasoline can seriously damage the engine
(carburetor clogged, valve stuck).
Such damage due to spoiled fuel is disallowed from coverage by the
warranty.
To avoid this please strictly follow these recommendations:
Only use specified gasoline (see page 18 ).
Use fresh and clean gasoline.
To slow deterioration, keep gasoline in a certified fuel container.
If long storage (more than 30 days) is foreseen, drain fuel tank and
carburetor (see pages 46 and 47 ).
Gasolines Containing Alcohol
If you decide to use a gasoline containing alcohol (gasohol), be sure its
octane rating is at least as high as that recommended by Honda. There
are two types of ‘‘gasohol’’: one containing ethanol, and the other
containing methanol.
Do not use gasohol that contains more than 10% ethanol. Do not use
gasoline containing methanol (methyl or wood alcohol) that does not
also contain cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors for methanol. Never
use gasoline containing more than 5% methanol, even if it has
cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors.
Fuel system damage or engine performance problems resulting
from the use of fuels that contain alcohol is not covered under the
warranty.
Honda cannot endorse the use of fuels containing methanol since
evidence of their suitability is as yet incomplete.
Before buying fuel from an unfamiliar station, try to find out if the
fuel contains alcohol, if it does, confirm the type and percentage of
alcohol used.
If you notice any undesirable operating symptoms while using a
gasoline that contains alcohol, or one that you think contains
alcohol, switch to a gasoline that you know does not contain alcohol.

3. Check the air cleaner.
Check the air cleaner element to be sure it is clean and in good
condition.
Loosen the cover screw and remove the left side maintenance cover.
Press the latch tab on the top of the air cleaner body, remove the air
cleaner cover, check the element.
Clean or replace the element if necessary (see page 41).
Never run the engine without the air cleaner element. Rapid engine
wear will result from contaminants, such as dust and dirt, being
drawn through the carburetor, into the engine.

Carburetor Modification for High Altitude Operation
At high altitude, the standard carburetor air-fuel mixture will be too
rich. Performance will decrease, and fuel consumption will increase. A
very rich mixture will also foul the spark plug and cause hard starting.
Operation at an altitude that differs from that at which this engine was
certified, for extended periods of time, may increase emissions.
High altitude performance can be improved by specific modifications
to the carburetor. If you always operate your generator at altitudes
above 1,500 meters (5,000 feet), have your authorized Honda servicing
dealer perform this carburetor modification. This engine, when
operated at high altitude with the carburetor modifications for high
altitude use, will meet each emission standard throughout its useful
life.
Even with carburetor modification, engine horsepower will decrease
about 3.5% for each 300-meter (1,000-foot) increase in altitude. The effect of altitude on horsepower will be greater than this if no carburetor
modification is made.
When the carburetor has been modified for high altitude operation,
the air-fuel mixture will be too lean for low altitude use. Operation at
altitudes below 1,500 meters (5,000 feet) with a modified carburetor
may cause the engine to overheat and result in serious engine
damage. For use at low altitudes, have your servicing dealer return
the carburetor to original factory specifications.

6. GENERATOR USE
Be sure to ground the generator when the connected equipment is
grounded.
Do not connect to a building’s electrical system unless an isolation
switch has been installed by a qualified electrician.
Connections for standby power to a building’s electrical system
must be made by a qualified electrician and must comply with all
applicable laws and electrical codes. Improper connections can
allow electrical current from the generator to back feed into the
utility lines. Such back feed may electrocute utility company
workers or others who contact the lines during a power outage,
and when utility power is restored, the generator may explode,
burn, or cause fires in the building’s electrical system.

Do not exceed the current limit specified for any one receptacle.
Do not connect the generator to a household circuit. This could
cause the damage to the generator or to electrical appliances in the
house.
Do not modify or use the generator for other purposes than it is
intended for. Also observe the following when using the generator.
Do not connect an extension to the exhaust pipe.
When an extension cable is required, be sure to use a tough rubber
sheathed flexible cable (IEC 245 or equivalent).
Limit length of extension cables; 60 m (200 feet) for cables of 1.5
mm (0.0023 in ) and 100 m (330 feet) for cables of 2.5 mm (0.0039
in ). Long extension cables will lower usable power due to
resistance in the extension cable.
Keep the generator away from other electric cables or wires such as
commercial power supply lines.
The DC receptacle can be used while the AC power is in use.
If you use both at the same time, do not exceed the maximum AC
power.
Maximum AC power: 0.8 kVA
Most appliance motors require more than their rated wattage for
startup.
Make sure the electrical rating of the tool or appliance does not
exceed that of the generator. Never exceed the maximum power
rating of the generator. Power levels between rated and maximum
may be used for no more than 30 minutes.
Limit operation requiring maximum power to 30 minutes.
Maximum power is: 1.0 kVA
For continuous operation, do not exceed the rated power.

Wash your hands with soap and water after handling used oil.
Please dispose of used motor oil in a manner that is compatible with
the environment. We suggest you take it in a sealed container to your
local service station for reclamation. Do not throw it in the trash or
pour it on the ground.

2. AIR CLEANER SERVICE
A dirty air cleaner will restrict air flow to the carburetor. To prevent
carburetor malfunction, service the air cleaner regularly. Service more
frequently when operating the generator in extremely dusty areas.
Do not use gasoline or low flash point solvents for cleaning. They are
flammable and explosive under certain conditions.
Never run the generator without the air cleaner. Rapid engine wear
may result.
1. Loosen the cover screw and remove the left side maintenance cover.
2. Press the latch tab on the top of the air cleaner body, and remove
the air cleaner cover.
3. Wash the element in a non-flammable or high flash point solvent
and dry it thoroughly.
4. Soak the element in clean engine oil and squeeze out the excess oil.
5. Reinstall the air cleaner element and the cover.
6. Reinstall the air cleaner cover by inserting the lower tabs, and the
latch tab.
7. Reinstall the left side maintenance cover and tighten the cover
screw securely.

3. SPARK PLUG SERVICE
RECOMMENDED SPARK PLUG: CR4HSB (NGK)
U14FSR-UB (DENSO)
To ensure proper engine operation, the spark plug must be properly
gapped and free of deposits.
1. Remove the spark plug maintenance cover.
SPARK PLUG MAINTENANCE COVER
2. Remove the spark plug cap.
3. Clean any dirt from around the spark plug base.
4. Use a spark plug wrench to remove the spark plug.

PLUG WRENCH
42
5. Visually inspect the spark plug. Discard it if the insulator is cracked,
chipped, or fouled. Clean the spark plug with a wire brush if it is to
be reused.
6. Measure the plug gap with a feeler gauge.
Correct as necessary by carefully bending the side electrode.
The gap should be:
0.6−0.7 mm (0.024−0.028 in)
0.6−0.7 mm
(0.024−0.028 in)
7. Install the spark plug carefully, by hand, to avoid cross-threading.
8. After a new spark plug has been seated by hand, it should be
tightened 1/2 turn with a wrench to compress its washer.
If a used plug is being reinstalled, it should only require 1/8 to 1/4
turn after being seated.
9. Reinstall the spark plug cap on the spark plug securely.
10. Reinstall the spark plug maintenance cover.
The spark plug must be securely tightened. An improperly
tightened plug can become very hot and possibly damage the
generator.
Never use a spark plug with an improper heat range.
43
4. SPARK ARRESTER MAINTENANCE
(Equipped type)
If the generator has been running, the muffler will be very hot.
Allow it to cool before proceeding.
The spark arrester must be serviced every 100 hours to maintain its
efficiency.
1. Remove the four 5 mm screws, and remove the muffler protector.
MUFFLER PROTECTOR
5 mm SCREW
2. Remove the three 6 mm bolts, and remove the muffler, the spark
arrester and the muffler gasket.

3. Use a brush to remove carbon deposits from the spark arrester
screen.
Inspect the spark arrester screen for holes or tears. Replace if
necessary.
4. Check the muffler gasket; replace if damaged.
Reinstall the muffler gasket, the spark arrester, the muffler and the
muffler protector in the reverse order of removal.
45
9. TRANSPORTING/STORAGE
To prevent fuel spillage when transporting or during temporary
storage, the generator should be secured upright in its normal
operating position, with the engine switch OFF.
The fuel cap vent lever is turned fully counterclockwise to the OFF
position.
When transporting the generator:
Do not overfill the tank (there should be no fuel in the filler neck).
Do not operate the generator while it is on a vehicle. Take the
generator off the vehicle and use it in a well ventilated place.
Avoid a place exposed to direct sunlight when putting the
generator on a vehicle. If the generator is left in an enclosed vehicle
for many hours, high temperature inside the vehicle could cause
fuel to vaporize resulting in a possible explosion.
Do not drive on a rough road for an extended period with the
generator on board. If you must transport the generator on a rough
road, drain the fuel from the generator beforehand.
Before storing the unit for an extended period:
1. Be sure the storage area is free of excessive humidity and dust.
2. Drain the fuel.
Gasoline is extremely flammable and is explosive under certain
conditions. Perform this task in a well ventilated area with the
engine stopped. Do not smoke or allow flames or sparks in the area
during this procedure.
a. Drain all gasoline from the fuel tank into an approved gasoline
container. We recommend using a commercially available
gasoline hand pump. Do not use an electric pump.
46
b. Turn the engine switch to the ON position, and loosen the
carburetor drain screw and drain the gasoline from the carburetor
into a suitable container.
c. With the drain screw loosened remove the spark plug cap, and
pull the starter grip 3 to 4 times to drain the gasoline from the fuel
pump.
d. Turn the engine switch to the OFF position, and tighten the drain
screw securely.
e. Reinstall the spark plug cap on the spark plug securely.
− SCREW DRIVER
○
3. Change the engine oil.
4. Remove the spark plug and pour about a tablespoon of clean engine
oil into the cylinder. Crank the engine several revolutions to
distribute the oil, then reinstall the spark plug.
5. Slowly pull the starter grip until resistance is felt. At this point, the
piston is coming up on its compression stroke and both the intake
and exhaust valves are closed. Storing the engine in this position
will help to protect it from internal corrosion.

‘‘the figures quoted are emission levels and are not necessarily safe
working levels. Whilst there is a correlation between the emission and
exposure levels, this cannot be used reliably to determine whether or
not further precautions are required. Factors that influence the actual
level of exposure of work-force include the characteristics of the work
room, the other sources of noise, etc. i.e. the number of machines and
other adjacent processes, and the length of time for which an operator
is exposed to the noise. Also the permissible exposure level can vary
from country. This information, however, will enable the user of the
machine to make a better evaluation of the hazard and risk’’.
