The Full kit (ES-F) components are shown above in FIG 2. The items numbered in red are not included in the Base kit (ES-B). They are only needed if the user wants to add the internal starter battery (battery, item 21 in the picture above, cannot be shipped), a charging system and an externally mounted fuel tank which keeps the generator fully portable.
Both kits include instructions for the removal of the pull-start system and installation of an electric start kit into a Honda EU2000i inverter generator. These instructions should provide complete installation steps so a mechanically handy individual can self-install the provided Electric Start Kit.

located and hard-wired to control the EU2000i generator's ON/OFF, Push-to-start,
"ECO"Speed Control ON/OFF and Choke ON/OFF Functions. The only generator function
not controlled is the fuel shut-off. You can select wiring extensions of 5, 15, 25 and 50 feet
in length upon order of the control panel (FIG 6). Choose from ES-CP5, ES-CP15, etc. for
your desired length on the pricing page.The control panel is not sold without one of the

Honda EU2000i generators are regularly used by individuals on campsites and RV sites due to its very quiet operation. Frog Products' electric start kit for the Honda EU2000i generator with a hard-wired remote allows campers and RV owners to set the generator up outside of the campsite in order to further reduce the noise and to open up more space in a small environment. The electric start kit with hard-wired remote also prevents individuals from having to go outside in bad weather to start the generator. Make camping more enjoyable and safer by installing Frog Product's Electric Start Kit with remote for the Honda EU2000i.
Large sailboats often have both sails and an internal combustion engine for propulsion. In addition, they also have DC lighting and other systems that are powered by the engines alternator, a wind generator, and a back-up battery system. Most larger sailboats also carry a small generator in order to charge the batteries and run the systems on a more efficient and quieter system than a large thrust engine. The Honda EU2000i is a popular generator for this back-up need.
The issue many Sail Boat operators face is that to use the Honda EU2000i, the owner has to manually pull-start and stop the unit out on the deck, often during bad weather. The Honda EU2000i Electric Start Kit with hard-wired remote is perfect for sail boats operating with a Honda EU2000i as it allows the owner to remotely start and stop the unit without having to brace dangerous weather.
Our Honda EU2000i Electric Start Kit is extremely popular here at Frog Products, Inc with individuals who either own or install back-up power systems. The Honda EU2000i is great for small installations as it powers up to 1600 watts, enough to power a few lights, TV/Radio, a refrigerator, a small heater, or even to charge a back-up battery pack at night when little power is being used.
Many generators are connected to an auto-start system (NOT Provided) that automatically starts the back-up generator when the AC power goes out. An auto set-up of this sort requires the generator to have an electric start and a hard-wired remote control capability, which is where our Electric Start Kit fits perfectly! Our Electric Start Kit allows owners of a Honda EU2000i to be used as a back-up generator connected to an existing emergency power auto-start system.
We will install the Hybrid-Pak Electric Start Kit in your Honda EU2000i at our location if desired or we can provide a complete system with hard-wired remote to include all functions except fuel shut-off. Use the Contact Us to request a special quote to your specifications.
