QwkRhino's Rotax Project.

Here's sum pic's of what I have done so far, with the help of Desert Dog and my friends at Desolate Motorsports. So far I have installed the thrushaft, Dalton clutch, added the can am fuel pump to the auxiliary fuel tank, cut and flipped the stock shifter around and tached up the exhaust to work with my Gibson pipe.

Does anyone know if the Rotax has a parking Brake light. I'm looking on the print an not seeing one. I might just wire up a dummy light if the Rotax does not have one.
