GENERATOR SAFETY
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Honda generators are designed for use with electrical equipment that
has suitable power requirements. Other uses can result in injury to the
operator or damage to the generator and other property.
Most injuries or property damage can be prevented if you follow all
the instructions in this manual and on the generator. The most
common hazards are discussed below, along with the best way to
protect yourself and others.
Operator Responsibility
• Know how to stop the generator quickly in case of emergency.
• Understand the use of all generator controls, output receptacles,
and connections.
• Be sure that anyone who operates the generator receives proper
instruction. Do not let children operate the generator without
parental supervision.
Carbon Monoxide Hazards
A generator's exhaust contains toxic carbon monoxide, which you
cannot see or smell. Breathing carbon monoxide can KILL YOU IN
MINUTES. To avoid carbon monoxide poisoning, follow these
instructions when operating a generator:
• Only run a generator OUTSIDE, far away from windows, doors, and
vents.
• Never operate a generator inside a house, garage, basement, crawl
space, or any enclosed or partially enclosed space.
• Never operate a generator near open doors or windows.
• Get fresh air and seek medical attention immediately if you suspect
you have inhaled carbon monoxide.
Early symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure include headache,
fatigue, shortness of breath, nausea, and dizziness. Continued
exposure to carbon monoxide can cause loss of muscular
coordination, loss of consciousness, and then death.
To alert you to potentially dangerous levels of carbon monoxide
coming from a generator operating outside or from other sources,
install battery operated carbon monoxide alarms or plug-in carbon
monoxide alarms with battery back-up on every level of the home and
outside sleeping areas, according to the manufacturer's instructions.

GENERATOR SAFETY
Electric Shock Hazards
• The generator produces enough electric power to cause a serious
shock or electrocution if misused.
• Using a generator or electrical appliance in wet conditions, such as
rain or snow, or near a pool or sprinkler system, or when your hands
are wet, could result in electrocution. Keep the generator dry.
• If the generator is stored outdoors, unprotected from the weather,
check all of the electrical components on the control panel before
each use. Moisture or ice can cause a malfunction or short circuit in
electrical components that could result in electrocution.
• Do not connect to a building’s electrical system unless an isolation
switch has been installed by a qualified electrician.
• For parallel operation, use only a Honda approved parallel operation
cable kit (optional equipment) when connecting one EU2000i to
either an EU2000i Companion or another EU2000i generator.
• Never connect different generator models.
Fire and Burn Hazards
• The exhaust system gets hot enough to ignite some materials.
– Keep the generator at least 3 feet (1 meter) away from buildings
and other equipment during operation.
– Do not enclose the generator in any structure.
– Keep flammable materials away from the generator.
• The muffler becomes very hot during operation and remains hot for
a while after stopping the engine. Be careful not to touch the muffler
while it is hot. Let the engine cool before storing the generator
indoors.

BEFORE OPERATION
ARE YOU READY TO GET STARTED?
Your safety is your responsibility. A little time spent in preparation will
significantly reduce your risk of injury.
Knowledge
Read and understand this manual. Know what the controls do and how
to operate them.
Familiarize yourself with the generator and its operation before you
begin using it. Know how to quickly shut off the generator in case of
an emergency.
If the generator is being used to power appliances, be sure that they do
not exceed the generator’s load rating (see pages 30 and 33).
IS YOUR GENERATOR READY TO GO?
For your safety, to ensure compliance with environmental regulations,
and to maximize the service life of your equipment, it is very important
to take a few moments before you operate the generator to check its
condition. Be sure to take care of any problem you find, or have your
servicing dealer correct it, before you operate the generator.
Failure to properly maintain this
generator, or failing to correct a
problem before operation, could
result in a significant malfunction.
Some malfunctions can seriously
hurt or kill you.
Always perform a pre-operation
inspection before each operation
and correct any problems.

BEFORE OPERATION
To prevent a possible fire, keep the generator at least 3 feet (1 meter)
away from building walls and other equipment during operation. Do
not place flammable objects close to the engine.
Before beginning your pre-operation checks, be sure the generator is
on a level surface and the engine switch is in the OFF position.
Check the Engine
• Before each use, look around and underneath the engine for signs of
oil or gasoline leaks.
• Check the engine oil level (see page 45). A low engine oil level will
cause the Oil Alert system to shut down the engine.
• Check the air filters (see page 49). Dirty air filters will restrict air flow
to the carburetor, reducing engine and generator performance.
• Check the fuel level (see page 43). Starting with a full tank will help
to eliminate or reduce operating interruptions for refueling.

Before operating the generator for the first time, review chapters
GENERATOR SAFETY (see page 6) and BEFORE OPERATION (see page
20).
For your safety, do not operate the generator in an enclosed area such
as a garage. Your generator’s exhaust contains poisonous carbon
monoxide gas that can collect rapidly in an enclosed area and cause
illness or death.
Exhaust contains poisonous carbon
monoxide gas that can build up to
dangerous levels in closed areas.
Breathing carbon monoxide can
cause unconsciousness or death.
Never run this product's engine in a
closed, or even partly closed area
where people may be present.
Before connecting an AC appliance or power cord to the generator:
• Use grounded 3-prong extension cords, tools, and appliances, or
double-insulated tools and appliances.
• Inspect cords and plugs, and replace if damaged.
• Make sure that the appliance is in good working order. Faulty
appliances or power cords can create a potential for electric shock.
• Make sure the electrical rating of the tool or appliance does not
exceed the rated power of the generator or the receptacle being

OPERATION
AC PARALLEL OPERATION
Before connecting an appliance to either generator, make sure that
the appliance is in good working order and that its electrical rating
does not exceed that of the receptacle.
Most motorized appliances require more than their electrical rating for
startup. When an electric motor is started, the overload indicator (red)
may come ON. This is normal if the overload indicator (red) goes OFF
within 4 seconds. If the overload indicator (red) stays ON, consult your
generator dealer.
During parallel operation, the Eco Throttle switch should be in the
same position on both generators.
1. Connect the parallel operation cable between the EU2000i to either
an EU2000i Companion or another EU2000i generator following the
instructions supplied with the cable kit.
PARALLEL OPTION KIT (EU2000i and EU2000i)
(optional equipment, see page 73)
PARALLEL OPTION CABLES KIT
(EU2000i and EU2000i Companion)
2. Start the engines (see page 23) and make sure the output indicator
(green) on each generator comes ON (see page 28).
3. Plug in the appliance following the instruction provided with the
parallel operation cable kit.
4. Turn on the appliance.
If the generators are overloaded (see page 33), or if there is a short
circuit in a connected appliance, the overload indicator (red) will go
ON. The overload indicator (red) will stay ON, and after about four
seconds, current to the connected appliance(s) will shut off, and the
output indicator (green) will go OFF. Stop both engines and
investigate the problem.
Determine if the cause is a short circuit in a connected appliance or an
overload. Correct the problem and restart the generator.

STANDBY POWER
Connections to a Building’s Electrical System
Connections for standby power to a building’s electrical system must
be made by a qualified electrician. The connection must isolate the
generator power from utility power, and must comply with all
applicable laws and electrical codes.
Improper connections to a building’s
electrical system can allow current
from the generator to backfeed into
the utility lines.
Such backfeed may electrocute
utility company workers or others
who contact the lines during a
power outage, and the generator
may explode, burn, or cause fires
when utility power is restored.
Consult the utility company or a
qualified electrician prior to making
any power connections.
In some areas, generators are required by law to be registered with
local utility companies. Check local regulations for proper registration
and use procedures.

STORAGE
STORAGE PREPARATION
Proper storage preparation is essential for keeping your generator
trouble-free and looking good. The following steps will help to keep
rust and corrosion from impairing your generator’s function and
appearance, and will make the engine easier to start when you use the
generator again.
Cleaning
Wipe the generator with a moist cloth. After the generator has dried,
touch up any damaged paint, and coat other areas that may rust with
a light film of oil.
Fuel
Depending on the region where you operate your equipment, fuel
formulations may deteriorate and oxidize rapidly. Fuel deterioration
and oxidation can occur in as little as 30 days and may cause damage
to the carburetor and/or fuel system. Please check with your servicing
dealer for local storage recommendations.
Gasoline will oxidize and deteriorate in storage. Old gasoline will
cause hard starting, and it leaves gum deposits that clog the fuel
system. If the gasoline in your generator deteriorates during storage,
you may need to have the carburetor and other fuel system
components serviced or replaced.
The length of time that gasoline can be left in your fuel tank and
carburetor without causing functional problems will vary with such
factors as gasoline blend, your storage temperatures, and whether the
fuel tank is partially or completely filled. The air in a partially filled fuel
tank promotes fuel deterioration. Very warm storage temperatures
accelerate fuel deterioration. Fuel deterioration problems may occur
within a few months, or even less if the gasoline was not fresh when
you filled the fuel tank.
The Distributor’s Limited Warranty does not cover fuel system
damage or engine performance problems resulting from neglected
storage preparation.
You can extend fuel storage life by adding a gasoline stabilizer that is
formulated for that purpose, or you can avoid fuel deterioration
problems by draining the fuel tank and carburetor.

STORAGE PRECAUTIONS
If your generator will be stored with gasoline in the fuel tank and
carburetor, it is important to reduce the hazard of gasoline vapor
ignition.
Select a well ventilated storage area away from any appliance that
operates with a flame, such as a furnace, water heater, or clothes
dryer.
Also avoid any area with a spark-producing electric motor, or where
power tools are operated.
If possible, avoid storage areas with high humidity, because that
promotes rust and corrosion.
Unless all fuel has been drained from the fuel tank, leave the engine
switch in the OFF position, and the fuel filler cap vent lever in the OFF
position (see page 26) to reduce the possibility of leakage.
Place the generator on a level surface. Tilting or laying it on its side can
cause fuel or oil leakage.
With the engine and exhaust system cool, cover the generator to keep
out dust. A hot engine and exhaust system can ignite or melt some
materials.
Do not use a plastic sheet as a dust cover. A nonporous cover will trap
moisture around the generator, promoting rust and corrosion.
REMOVAL FROM STORAGE
Check your generator as described in the BEFORE OPERATION chapter
of this manual (see page 20).
If the fuel was drained during storage preparation, fill the tank with
fresh gasoline. If you keep a container of gasoline for refueling, be sure
that it contains only fresh gasoline. Gasoline oxidizes and deteriorates
over time, causing hard starting.
If the cylinder was coated with oil during storage preparation, the
engine may smoke briefly at startup. This is normal.

TRANSPORTING
Do not lay the generator on its side when moving, storing, or
operating it. Oil may leak and damage the engine or your property.
If the generator has been used, allow it cool for at least 15 minutes
before loading the generator on the transport vehicle. A hot engine and
exhaust system can burn you and can ignite some material.
To prevent fuel spillage when transporting, the generator should be
secured upright in its normal operating position, with the engine switch
OFF and the fuel filler cap vent lever turned fully counterclockwise to
the OFF position (see page 26).
Take care not to drop or strike the generator when transporting. Do
not place heavy objects on the generator.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION
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 5,000 feet (1,500 meters), 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 1,000-foot (300-meter) 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 5,000 feet (1,500 meters) 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.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Emission Control System Information
Source of Emissions
The combustion process produces carbon monoxide, oxides of
nitrogen, and hydrocarbons. Control of hydrocarbons and oxides of
nitrogen is very important because, under certain conditions, they react
to form photochemical smog when subjected to sunlight. Carbon
monoxide does not react in the same way, but it is toxic.
Honda utilizes appropriate air/fuel ratios and other emissions control
systems to reduce the emissions of carbon monoxide, oxides of
nitrogen, and hydrocarbons.
Additionally, Honda fuel systems utilize components and control
technologies to reduce evaporative emissions.
The U.S. and California Clean Air Acts
EPA and California regulations require all manufacturers to furnish
written instructions describing the operation and maintenance of
emission control systems.
The following instructions and procedures must be followed in order to
keep the Honda engine emissions within the emission standards.
Tampering and Altering
Tampering is a violation of federal and California law.
Tampering with or altering the emission control system may increase
emissions beyond the legal limit. Among those acts that constitute
tampering are:
• Removal or alteration of any part of intake, fuel, or exhaust systems.
• Altering or defeating the governor linkage or speed-adjusting
mechanism to cause the engine to operate outside its design
parameters.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Problems That May Affect Emissions
If you are aware of any of the following symptoms, have your engine
inspected and repaired by your authorized Honda servicing dealer.
• Hard starting or stalling after starting.
• Rough idle.
• Misfiring or backfiring under load.
• Afterburning (backfiring).
• Black exhaust smoke or high fuel consumption.
Replacement Parts
The emissions control systems on your new Honda engine were
designed, built, and certified to conform with EPA, California, and
Canadian emissions regulations. We recommend the use of Honda
Genuine parts whenever you have maintenance done. These originaldesign replacement parts are manufactured to the same standards as
the original parts, so you can be confident of their performance.
Honda cannot deny coverage under the emission warranty solely for
the use of non-Honda replacement parts or service performed at a
location other than an authorized Honda dealership; you may use
comparable EPA certified parts, and have service performed at nonHonda locations. However, the use of replacement parts that are not
of the original design and quality may impair the effectiveness of your
emissions control system.
A manufacturer of an aftermarket part assumes the responsibility that
the part will not adversely affect emissions performance. The
manufacturer or rebuilder of the part must certify that use of the part
will not result in a failure of the engine to comply with emissions
regulations.
Maintenance
As the power equipment engine owner, you are responsible for
completing all required maintenance listed in your owner's manual.
Honda recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance
on your power equipment engine, but Honda cannot deny warranty
coverage solely for the lack of receipts or for your failure to ensure
that all scheduled maintenance has been completed.
Follow the MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE on page 42.
Remember that this schedule is based on the assumption that your
generator will be used for its designed purpose. Sustained high-load
or high-temperature operation, or use in dusty conditions, will require
more frequent service.

Owner’s Warranty Responsibility
As the power equipment engine owner, you are responsible for
completing all required maintenance listed in your owner’s manual.
Honda recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance
on your power equipment engine, but Honda cannot deny warranty
coverage solely for the lack of receipts or for your failure to ensure
that all scheduled maintenance has been completed.
As the power equipment engine owner, you should however be aware
Honda may deny you warranty coverage if your power equipment
engine or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper
maintenance, or unapproved modifications.
You are responsible for presenting your power equipment engine to a
Honda Power Equipment dealer as soon as a problem exists. The
emission related warranty repairs should be completed in a reasonable
amount of time, not to exceed 30 days.
If you have any questions regarding your emission warranty rights and

CONSUMER INFORMATION
Warranty Coverage
Honda power equipment engines sold in the United States and Canada
are covered by this warranty for a period of two years from the date of
delivery to the original retail purchaser or the length of the Honda
Distributor’s Limited Warranty, whichever is longer. This warranty is
transferable to each subsequent purchaser for the duration of the
warranty period.
If any emission-related part on your engine is defective, the part will be
repaired or replaced by Honda without charge for diagnosis, parts, or
labor. All defective parts replaced under this warranty become the
property of Honda. Only Honda-approved replacement parts may be
used in the performance of any warranty repairs and must be provided
without charge to the owner. A list of warranted parts is on page 84.
Normal maintenance items, such as spark plugs and filters, that are on
the warranted parts list are warranted up to their required replacement
interval only.
Honda will also replace other engine components damaged by a failure
of any warranted part during the warranty period.
The use of replacement parts not equivalent to the original parts may
impair the effectiveness of your engine emission control system. If such
a replacement part is used in the repair or maintenance of your engine,
and an authorized Honda dealer determines it is defective or causes a
failure of a warranted part, your claim for repair of your engine may be
denied. If the part in question is not related to the reason your engine
requires repair, your claim will not be denied.

CONSUMER INFORMATION
To Obtain Warranty Service
You must, at your own expense, take your Honda Power Equipment
engine or the product on which it is installed, along with your sales
registration card or other proof of original purchase date, to any Honda
Power Equipment dealer who is authorized by Honda to sell and service
that Honda product during their normal business hours. Claims for
repair or adjustment found to be caused solely by defects in material or
workmanship will not be denied because the engine was not properly
maintained and used.
If you are unable to obtain emission warranty service or are dissatisfied
with the warranty service you received, contact the owner of the
dealership involved. Normally this should resolve your problem.
However, if you require further assistance, contact the Honda office in
your region:

unsuitable attachments, or the unauthorized alteration of any part.
This warranty does not cover replacement of expendable maintenance
items made in connection with required maintenance service after the
item’s first scheduled replacement as listed in the maintenance section
of the product owner’s manual, such as: spark plugs and filters.

INITIAL USE INSTRUCTIONS
FUEL
Add fuel to the generator in a well-ventilated area. Never refuel the
engine inside a building where gasoline fumes may reach flames or
sparks. Keep gasoline away from appliance pilot lights, barbecues,
electric appliances, power tools, etc. Spilled fuel is not only a fire
hazard, it causes environmental damage. Wipe up spills immediately.
This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline with a pump octane
rating of 86 or higher. Refer to page 44 for additional fuel recommendations.
Gasoline is highly flammable and
explosive, and you can be burned or
seriously injured when handling fuel.
• Stop the engine and let it cool
before handling fuel.
• Keep heat, sparks, and flame away.
• Handle fuel only outdoors.
• Wipe up spills immediately.
