The sticky "Honda 2000i Carb Job With Photos" has been very popular but apparently the photos are lost and can't be recovered.

I have started a shop notebook on the 2000i with a lot of quotes and links collected from all over the web.

It is all organized with a table of contents to help zero in on specific information you need.

A popular carb cleaning video has been reviewed second by second to clear up confusing sections and make the parts list more exact. I reviewed over 160 comments on this video to pull out the nuggets.

I also included a selection of photos as I watched the video and worked on the generator. All this is done on my workbench so details are not forgotten.

Hope this helps folks with the amazing EU2000i. Feedback welcome. Thank you.

Thanks all, happy to help

The section on how Burning Man takes care of the EU2000i is especially interesting.

They have apparently learned some tricks from the street vendor community (food trucks, etc.) that put huge hours on their machines.

the break in part is known, the comment right below burning man is a contradiction.

they say use 0w-20,

guy below has 6k hours and uses the cheapest 10-w30 he can find.

your mileage obviously varies.

A few tips on carburetor rebuild. These apply to all small engine carburetor rebuilds.

  • Use a flashlight an inspect the inside of the tank. If there is ANY debris inside the tank, remove it and rinse it clean ! Replace any fuel filter and consider replacing all fuel line.
  • One video says replace the bowl gasket (it usually looks like a flat rubber O-ring) every time. IMHO, this is not required. Do NOT get carburetor cleaner on the gasket as it will swell and will not fit properly
  • Get a very fine piece of stiff wire (a single bristle from a wire brush) and probe all holes/passageways to be sure there is no debris or varnish.

Do not use wire in jets, it will scratch and change the flow rate. If you must probe in those small holes, use a bristle from a paint brush.
