It may vary by model, but Honda small motors are made in China. Even
their lawn mowers are made in China. I my old Honda Mower (about 20
years old) by a local shop that knew the old Japanese engines. The thing
didn't actually fail as much as I put in stale gas that clogged it up.
But I got the thing refurbed and it certainly is better than anything
made in China.

Regarding the comment on Yamaha, my understanding is they still made
their own motor, which is why the Honda inverter generator sales have
gone to Yamaha. The 2nd from the bottom of the line model has a cast
cylinder sleeve and is claimed to be a real work horse.

It's possible that the Generac generator has components Made in
China.  It is also possible that the starter shown in this thread is
the same model as mine.  I have not disassembled it yet, unless
compelled by court.  However, a picture of this broken starter could
be submitted as evidence.

Don't know about that... but one reason I'm leaning
to the Yamaha products is some of their inverter units
use the "starting battery" (for those that have electric
start, of course) to provide some additional capacity
to handle the starting-draw current.

afaik they're the only ones. I'd love to hear about others...
