    Sorry for the delay on up dating this. After adjusting the warp drive prop 1.5 degrees the rpm went up to normal static running rpm.Oddly the Rotax tach was off only after it reached 3500. The TinnyTach and lazer confirmed that.

    It just started! Its only a thought that maybe my engine is running up right and my tack is off. Ill be doing a strobe light test on the prop to tell for sure.

    Rotax tach question!
    Has anyone ever had a Rotax tachometer that didn't read correct rpm? Mine will only go up to 3500 rpm., Engine runs smooth and seems to be at full power, good fuel supply with 5pd of pressure, throttle on carbs is all the way to max position, little room left before stop. Prop is set at mid climb/ cruise. Just thinking it's got to be a simple problem or faulty teach reading. Any thoughts appreciated! Thanks!

    My wires from the mag switches go to the ignition switch, the wires could just be ground connect, disconnect from switch.

    Ignition switch took a dump
    Hey All! My ignition switch broke, turned to the start position and wouldn't go back, New one needed, this has probably been asked before! If so excuse me, Its 6 posts but only 5 used, 2mag, acc,gnd,Batt, and sol. No luck at kitfox catalog either, Is the mags both powered off one post and one is a mag ground? If so, then I've seen several switches that will work, I've got toggles for mags. Can anyone tell me who makes them, no name or number on old switch.Thanks for any info!

    It sounds like the larger cross over tube is the way to go, at least it couldn't hurt. Ill be doing a static ground test this week end and see if it reacures.

    Thanks for that info 1avid flyer! Sounds interesting! I'm going to do a static run up this week end and see if it acures on the ground, but that does make sense in low rpm balance.

    Ruff Rotax 912
    Hey all! Here's a question about my Rotax UL912,  So flying along and slowing down, engine reaches 2800 rpm and starts running ruff, increase rpm and its smooth, and below 2800 its smooth again, but it did this several times! Any ideas on what could cause this, fresh fuel 91 octain, new filters, new carb boots, new battery, engine starts instantly and sounds fine at every other rpm.
