Doug,

Thanks for talking to Marty about that issue. Can we get it in official form?

20.3.10.3 Carburetors: OEM as supplied from the engine manufactureer. Jetting is open. You may install washers to the OEM needle jets for the purpose of tuning. The means that the throttle connect is non-tech, but you must use the OEM arm and shaft assembly.

So what does the little phrase, “The means that the throttle connects is non-tech” mean? To me that says, elbow, cap, spring, throttle cable are all non-tech. The carb rule expanded itself from the 2004 rules.

It really doesn’t matter one way or another for me. I do not see it as anything other than a time saving device. I never thought it had a tuning effect. If anything, it would be a detriment to change out the Rotax cap due to the large size of the Rotax black cap.

Can we get in writing via e-mail from a SKUSA official that the cap & spring are both tech items and must be OEM?

Just as Charles stated, I wish it would just say it plain and clear.
