Here is my FL350 in the midst of the Farr Rotax 670 conversion. It’s been a fun but frustrating project. I also have the Farr TRX450R front suspension kit that really came out nice. I have been on this forum quite a bit and I have studied every Rotax conversion thread and picture, it’s been a huge help. I have a few questions for you guys that have done the conversion.

1. I’d love to know how you set up the dual carb throttle cable assembly. What kind of bracket did you come up with and how did you route the original cable?

2. Where did you mount your fuel pump? The website recommends mounting it to the Engine mount but I’d like to have it more accessible.

3. I’d love some guidance on the wiring. I bought a Skido repair manual and I am trying to make sense of the wiring set up. It has to be more straight forward than what I am seeing.

Any pictures would be a huge help. I’m in Houston, TX and I’m looking forward to hearing this baby fire up.

Dave

You best bet is the search box above. Type in rotax conversion. Lots of stuff there.
Here is one post of a rotax: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=14265&hilit=rotax+conversion

Also look directly below this post. There are many suggested threads.

Once again I have read stuff to fast and commented before I fully understand what I read.

I missed that part of your comment.
Ignore my comments previous.

The rotax Engine electronics are mostly plug and play, the Engine will run like by just plugging electronics together but its best to have the kill switch wired up first, what you have to tie into the stock harness is the kill switch wire and the charging system wires, it is also necessary to wire in a temp switch for the rad fan, summit racing has a kit with sensor that will screw directly into the head on the rotax Engine.

The kill switch wire is the single black wire coming out of the CDI (Capacitor Discharge Ignition) box, on the older models is comes out of the Engine base. This wire when grounded will shut the Engine off

The two yellow wires coming out of the Engine go to the voltage regulator, the ody reg has 3 yellow wires so tie 2 into 1 before connecting to the 2 from the Engine.

To join the stock throttle cable to the 2 into 1 throttle cable that comes with the kit you have to.
1. pop the cap off the junction
2. pull the slider inside up to the top and remove whats left of the oil injection cable and remove whats left of the single cable in the cap.
3. remove the nut from the end of the stock cable and insert the end of the stock cable in the cap and connect the cable end to the slider in the junction.
4. push the cap back onto the junction and your done

Also don't forget to install the original bumper clamps on the front suspension subframe

Thanks Emmanuel, that is exactly what I was looking for. I appreciate the info. I can’t wait to hear it fire up that first time.
