What effect does the 912X upgrade have on the recommended TBO?
On condition, because technically it is not n Rotax anymore (or that’s what i have been told)

Induna, thanks for hearsay comment about Rotax motors metamorphing when you change a washer on them.
I can always count on you, hijacking some body's post and adding your 2 cents .

No i think it is actually a valid comment, even if its hearsay.. let's hear what the experts (like yourself) have to say. If you have nothing positive to add then rather refrain from posting

So let me explain. If you change the pistons on the 912 (like the XTRA kit), then all parts in the 912 are not Rotax original, hence Rotax will not honor a warrantee (if it was still in that period). Basically, it is not a Rotax original product (like the complete engine) so technically speaking it does not have to comply with the 12 year or time based requirements (which are recommendations by the way), hence then being run "on condition". Ask the AMOs that add aftermarket turbos and superchargers or Edge Performance kits to these engines and they will tell you the same thing.

I am not talking about changing washers. Use your common sense and stop making silly comments.

Mike, sorry for the hijack... This aircraft is worth every cent. Good luck with the sale.

As far as I am aware - because the engine was opened and "re-done" at around 250 hrs it is the same as an overhaul so the TBO is shifted by an extra 250 hrs and it does not affect the over all TBO time of 1500hrs

Thanks Bluesmancoops. Good luck with the sale. I doubt this one is going to be around too long.

Is this the same aircraft as the Zodiac CH601XL? I have tried in vain to get the specs from Google for Zenair 601.

Hi Limak - no it is not the same - it is closer to the South African Raven aircraft - the 601XL has more of a bubble canopy

IINM the Raven is more similar to the 601HD, certainly in terms of the wing. If you Google "601HD" the first few links that come up should perhaps give you a better idea of representative specs. To be honest I think the HD also had a bubble canopy though.
