Introducing Rotax Your Rhino!

Per Dieselpowereds permission _

After much anticipation, I'm very happy to introduce Rotax Your Rhino!

I have been working on producing a user friendly kit that will allow the average guy to install a Rotax 800cc vtwin into their Rhino with very minimal fabrication needed. The kit will come with the following:

3 engine mounts (powdercoated and color)
zinc plated hardware
shifter linkage
clamps and instructions for coolant provisions
drive shaft modification kit (front and rear)
blank dash plate for mounting Rotax dash and misc gauges (covers the factory dash hole)
billet shift knob with Rotax shift pattern enscribed (available seperate),
300m - heat treated through shaft (available seperate)
detailed instructions for instalation

I may be offering a wiring harness modification service and/or complete engine swap service if the demand is high enough.

Pricing and availabilty will be announced in the next thirty days after testing has been completed. With that said, please be patient, and understand that I am doing this in the interest of the consumer, while trying to keep costs down as low as possible to ensure that this swap is affordable for everyone! HUGE thanks goes out to Greg Frantz, and Lonestar Racing for design and fabrication! Thanks for looking. Comments and suggestions welcome!

"Pricing will be announced in the next thirty days"

The kit and through shafts will be priced in the interest of the consumer in hope of making this swap more popular and affordable!

This is good stuff because we need to remember that, unless hell freezes over, the CanAm SxS is to hit the market. Speculations have ranged from 800up to 1200 sizes. Depending on the obvious variables like price, looks, engine size etc that could be the bad boy that reduces the urge to do swaps, just buy the CanAm instead....can you say Terex & Brute force in the same sentence LBR
