I ordered two EF2000iS in July from Yamahagenerators.com and they were here in three days. They shipped from California to Florida. I bought the Yamaha because they mentioned a fuel cut off switch in their literature. Could not find that about the Honda. If Wise did not have them since May they should have ordered more. I did get the oil change spout and the fuel caps form for adding a fuel tank from Wise in about a week.

Yes I did get the email discount. No specific reason for going Yamaha over Honda as its my understanding you cant go wrong either way. I've just always been a Yamaha guy (own a Yamaha sport quad) and the Yamaha has a few features I like over the Honda...and in my opinion the Yamaha looks better And as it sits right now, yamahagenerators.com is beating the prices on Hondas as Wise Sales jacked their price of the Honda 2000 up to $999 since the storm hit.

That's great to hear. I live in Nevada so hopefully I get mine as quick as you did!

According to Wise Sales Yamaha keeps giving them the run around on when more generators will be available to them...Which I don't believe since others are able to get them and keep them stocked. My main beef was how they handled the situation by allowing me to order one and take my money immediately while they themselves said they have no idea when they will get more. And failing to notify me of the situation until I took it upon myself to ask what the heck was going on with my order.

I see that Wise Sales has just recently changed the status of the Yamaha to "on back order"

As an update: I ordered my Yamaha 2000 from yamahagenerators.com on the 1st of November. I got it at my door yesterday 11/5. Not bad taking into consideration the weekend.
Got the Yami all oiled and fueled up and fired it up. Hooked it up to the trailer and tested it out. Love it so far! Definitely a quality unit.

Sure beats getting jerked around. It is incredible how fast they get to you. You will want to get the oil change spout. They should put them in the box with the generator as part of the purchase.. That would make the deal perfect.

My Honda EU2000i has the fuel cutoff switch integrated with the on/off switch. When you shut it off, it also shuts off the fuel. Makes it pretty foolproof.

Just received my recall notice on my Honda 2000 for "high emissions" from possible fuel line fire. How did they combine those two statements? Anyways, recall is serial number based so I will post my letter as soon as I get it out of the DW's truck.

Will the Honda cut off switch allow you to run the generator until the fuel bowl is dry for storage?

Agreed. I ordered the oil spout and magnetic "dipstick" from amazon.
