  1. Thanks for all the constructive feedback gents, I really appreciate it - tailwinds 🙂
  2. Thanks Onetrack for your feedback and much appreciated mate, I generally replace all my zip ties annually so it's not a problem 🙂
  3. Hey thanks Downunder and that's great to hear. Yes the ceramic coating is holding well so far also thanks, it was well worth the $300 investment.
  4. Thanks for the feedback and that's great to hear 🙂
  5. Hi All, I'd love to hear anyones experience and any feedback good or bad regarding silicone hoses used on Rotax 912ULS engine and whether if this is appropriate? I recently completed a Rotax 5 year rubber replacement on my engine and replaced the one inch stiff ribbed style hose with a silicone one inch heater hose. This silicone hose flex (refer to pictures) easily meets/exceeds the temperature and pressure requirements of this system and there are no kinks when hot or cold. I would love to hear anyones opinions/feedback on whether if this was a good idea or not.

  10. Hi all, I'm doing my 5 yearly Rotax rubber replacement and could anyone please tell me where can I get a replacement hose to this black ribbed style coolant hose? (pictures attached) it has an internal diameter of 1 inch and wall is 4mm wide. It looks like straight heater hose but it needs to handle 130' Celcius (unlike car radiator hoses which are only good for 80-90'C). I am thinking that silicone type hoses are the way to go due their high temperature tolerance and excellent ageing characteristics. Unfortunately I am unable to get this hose from Bert Floods as it is a non-Rotax part. Th
  11. Just had my 912 exhaust system ceramic coated yesterday in Turbo-Black colour at Competition Coatings in Acherfield BNE $300 - very happy with the job (pictures attached). Thanks fellas for your advice and opinions :) cheers, Andrew
  12. Thanks Skippydiesel for the information & much appreciated! I will be at my machine tomorrow and will take some pics of my cooling system hoses for you. Cheers
