Safety Officer Posted December 7, 2012 Report Share Posted December 7, 2012 Just a quick FYI, Talked to Rotax today about the 912is fuel injected engine. Public maint. classes may not happen until about May or June. So support will be tough to come by for a while. There is a distributor level class tentatively set for Feb. in the Bahamas. It is not open to the public and it's an invitation only. This is not so much a maint. class as an overhaul class, but it may end up as both. Rotax won't have a public class until they get a maint. book out which won't be until the May or June time period. If you choose to work on a 912is then you will need to buy a dongle and take a specialty class. There are 3 levels of maint. on this new engine and the dongle and programs can be up to $1K. Just knowing about FI engines won't work on this engine. An untrained mechanic can easily screw this engine up. Yes Rotax and the other Mfg's kind of put the horse before the cart as far as maint. I'm trying to get accepted to this class, but it may not happen so I'll keep people informed when I can. You'll run this engine around 5400-5500 all the time for cruise. It likes the higher rpms.Temps and overall performance are about the same as the 912ULS with the exception of reduced emissions and better fuel economy.
