What's this all about, and how does it affect my engine?? skriver Rotax Owner.
If you have recently taken delivery of a new ROTAX 912, 914, or 582 that was produced AFTER MAY 9th, 2016 - or - if you have recently replaced 912, 914, 582, 447, 503 or 618 carburetors or carburetor floats with replacement parts that were produced AFTER MAY 9th, 2016 - then you should go on!
Rotax har udsendt Service Letter Conditions relating to the limited extended warranty for ROTAX® Engine Types 912/914 Series and 912 i Series dateret den 07.07.2016: SL-912-012 R3, rev.3., d06354.pdf. Nok godt at vide for nye flyejere i branchen. Service brevet gælder også nye og ubrugte og fejlfri dele til Rotax' motorer. Dog er der begrænsninger. Der er 9 punkter, som det nok er værd lige at se nærmere på side 3 i dokumentet som er på 6 sider. Men husk at i byretten er det den tyske udgave, der gælder. God læselyst ;-)

På nogle Savannah'er har man afmonteret slotsene. På en forespørgsel til fabrikken ICP via den danske forhandler, har vi fået det svar, at fabrikken ikke vil godkende at man afmonterer slotsene.
Det vil så sige at flyene ikke er luftdygtige, før slotsene er genmonteret.
Dette gælder ikke VG modellerne hvor der aldrig har været slots.
