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 (and related models). These instructions should provide complete installation steps so a mechanically handy individual can self-install the provided Electric Start Kit.
The Base kit (ES-B)
This kit provides all the necessary parts to replace the original pull-start with an electric start. However, it requires the user to provide an external fuel source and a 12-volt starting battery. No Red items shown above in FIG 2 are included.
You can choose to add a Wireless Remote, a Wired Remote and an Electric Choke Kit (described below) by selecting the proper item on the purchasing page.
The Full kit (ES-F)
This kit also provides all the necessary parts to replace the original pull-start with an
electric start but in addition provides provisions for an internal battery, charger, and
external fuel tank mounting system which allows the generator to remain portable.
All items shown in FIG 2 above are included.
You can choose to add all other options (described below) by selecting the proper
item on the purchasing page.
This kit is now available to add an electric choke (Wired or Wireless) capability so
that the choke function of the EU2000i series generator can be remotely controlled.
This kit is designed to be used with either of the Electric Start Kits (ES-B or ES-F)
listed above and the remote control kits described below. FIG 3 shows the
installed kit. See the Electric Choke Kit page for a full description.
This kit (FIG 4) provides detailed instructions, a control panel decal, a four foot extension
harness, and all the necessary switches which can be remotely located and hard-wired to
control the EU2000i series 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
Honda EU2000i series 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 series generator with a hard-wired or wireless 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 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 series generator.
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 engine's 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 series is a popular generator for this back-up need.
The issue many Sail Boat operators face is that to use the Honda EU2000i series generator, the owner has to manually pull-start and stop the unit out on the deck, often during bad weather. The Honda EU2000i Series Electric Start Kit with remote is perfect for sail boats operating with a Honda EU2000i series generator as it allows the owner to remotely start and stop the unit without having to face dangerous weather.
Our Honda EU2000i Series 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 (1800 watts for the EU2200i), 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 wired remote control capability, which is where our Electric Start Kit with Wired Remote fits perfectly! Our Electric Start Kit allows owners of a Honda EU2000i series to be used as a back-up generator connected to an existing/user supplied emergency power auto-start system.
We will install the Hybrid-Pak Electric Start Kit in your Honda EU2000i series generator at our location if desired or we can provide a complete system with wired or wireless remote to include all functions except fuel shut-off. Use the Contact Us to request a special quote to your specifications.
