I am not sure as I did not do the work myself. This was not erratic idling this was not able to run at anything near the rated load--and running rich as well.
I own the Boliy, a Champion 2000i, and a Champion open frame 3500/4000. Out of the three, the Boliy has given me the most issues. I'm waiting on the entire recoil assembly to be delivered to get the Boliy running again. When the Boliy runs, it does a good job, but I don't have complete confidence in it and will take the 2000i along with me as a backup. The original recoil, including the actual housing, is all plastic. I was really surprised at how cheaply made it was. If the replacement genuine Yamaha recoil isn't the end of the issues and costs, I'm putting it in my shed to collect dust and my kids can toss it into the dumpster once I head to the campground in the sky....lol.
Yes, I sold it at a garage sale for $100.00 after four attempts to fix it. It ended up producing 88 volts the last time I was able to get it running. The only way it would start is if both wires to the low oil sensor were snipped off.
I've had my Boliy 3600 SIE for 2 years, It's been troublesome, the wiring and electrical is weak,
Battery charge coil went out, causing the throttle positioner to not work. The replacement part was mis-wired (wire not stripped before crimping, not an easy trouble to find. The un-stripped wire provided 12 vdc to the throttle controller).
The inverter went out, probably from low engine rpm.
Replacement parts have different plugs than the originals so the old plugs need to be cutoff and spliced in.
The electrical diagram in the manual does not match the unit. The proper diagram was not available online til several months after my troubles.
Several wires have pulled out from their crimps in plugs.
Tech support troubleshooting was poor, No phone, just my emails to the seller that were forwarded, answered and returned to the seller then returned to me. parts supply slow.
One bolt cannot be put back in the case on the SIE models because of battery location.
Fuel gauge soon becomes illegible.
I had a no start last year at the Quartzsite show, I was impressed with the Champion 2000I display, so bought one.
The Boliy does nicely with a 1500 watt resistive load, only subtle noise or rpm change in econ, the champion is close to max noise and rpm at that load. After the breakfast load, we typically only use 200 – 300 watts.
Low load fuel consumption is high compared to Champion 2000I. A 350 watt resistive load runs for 11.5 hours on 1.9 gal of fuel on the Boliy, the same load runs for 10.5 hours on 1 gal on the 2000I.
The Boliy will not start my AC with converter connected and doing bulk charge. I don't run AC dry camping any way, not at $0.50 - $0.60 per kilowatt hour.
It been mentioned a couple times so I thought I would post to let people know that YES we are still in business..
We are the exclusive importer for Boliy Canada. Our website was already listed in the this thread so I won't relist it as I think that might break the rules..
Anyone in Canada looking for service or parts can contact us. Unfortunately we do not warranty units purchased from the USA, but we will do our best to help you out if we can.
We also have a Remote Start version with all the same features as the "Florida" model. We have actually been selling a limited remote (Econ and kill) for 5 years. Recently we added the full remote start and have had great success. It not yet listed on our website, but you can e-mail us for details.
Anyway... Please send me a private message if you have questions or require service..
