Honda Marine Outboard | BF40JET | Mid-Size | 4-stroke
The Honda 40 Jet is great for going to places you cannot get with a standard prop driven outboard and is based on Honda proven 60 HP platform.
The best choice for navigating in shallow waters.
The 40 Jet goes where props can't. Shallow lakes, rocky rivers, rapids, sandbars - our Jet outboards are ready to explore.
Reliable, efficient 4-stroke design
World-renowned Honda quality combines proven reliability and superior fuel efficiency, with no oil mixing.
BLAST® System - improves acceleration at low speeds
Boosted Low Speed Torque, or BLAST, improves acceleration at low speeds. A quick movement of the throttle control activates the BLAST®system, advancing the ignition curve aggressively. "Hole Shot" is vastly improved as more horsepower gets the hull up on plane quicker.Learn More
Lean Burn Control® - Superior fuel efficiency
Lean Burn Control® increases fuel efficiency by allowing combustion to operate on a leaner air/fuel mixture. At cruising speed, this engine runs on up to 10% less fuel* than others in its class.
*Based on EPA Specific Fuel Consumption Mode.
Programmed Fuel Injection - Powerful performance
Programmed Fuel Injection delivers the precise amount of fuel/air to each cylinder. The result is easy starts and instant throttle response with superior fuel efficiency.
Superior Battery Charging - More usable power
There's always plenty of electric power with the 40 Jet. Honda's exclusive neodymium magnet flywheel enables these engines to produce nearly twice as many charging amps as some competitors. The high output helps keep battery banks charged all day, even when running multiple accessories. The 40 Jet develops a total 22 amps and 17 charging amps.Learn More
True 5 Warranty
Honda's True 5 Warranty is the best in the business. This transferable, non-declining warranty is the same on the last day as it is on the first.Learn More
Variable Speed Trolling - available on optional tiller model
For fisherman who want to slow troll, Honda's variable speed control is available on an optional tiller. The system adjusts in 50 RPM increments between 750 RPM and 1000 RPM.
Engine Alert System - Keeps you informed
The Engine Alert System uses visual, audio and RPM reduction circuits to alert the operator of over-heating, low oil PSI and over-revving. This helps to prevent engine damage.
Meets NMEA 2000 standards - on-board connectivity
NMEA 2000 protocols allow engine data to be displayed on NMEA 2000 compliant dashboard electronics, like sonar and GPS.
4-Front Corrosion Protection System - Fights the elements
The Corrosion Protection System is a patented "Double Sealed" multi-layered paint process. Sacrificial anodes and stainless steel technology, along with waterproof connectors, internally painted cooling passages, and a freshwater flushing device, all enhance corrosion protection.Learn More
Ultra Low 3 Star CARB Emissions
Environmentally conscious technology. All Honda Marine engines exceed the highest CARB 3-Star rating to meet the rigorous California Air Resource Board's standards.
Mikuni® Intake System
The lightweight Mikuni® long tube intake track system helps build low end torque.
Optional Conveniences - tilt limit switch and rudder angle indicator
An optional tilt limit switch keeps the motor from rubbing against the bottom of a pontoon boat's sun deck. The dash mounted rudder angle indicator keeps the captain informed to which direction the engine is pointing.
Easy access side-mounted oil filter and oil fillers simplify maintenance, while "screw-type" valve adjusters reduce maintenance costs.
Non-Linear Mounting System - Smoother operation
Patented non-linear rubber mounts provide smoother operation at all engine speeds.
Available in a 25 inch shaft
