New rotax rhino

Good day all

I live in Western Canada and just finished my rotax swap. Two words "holly crap" is this thing fun. Went with a friend who has a new RZR SS he could not keep up. If anyone is thinking of doing this swap let me tell you it works. I did the the whole swap in my garage. Built the mounts,exhaust, drive shafts, and wiring. I used a Gorilla through shaft. My rig has 26" Mud Wolf tires and has no problem laying black on pavement.

If any one would like more info on doing the swap at home let me know.

The way you installed the engine, it looks like a factory install. Nice job.

Thanks for the coments.
In the pics you may see that the box is shorter (5'') and 50lbs litter.I also used the stock air box and the Can Am fuel tank.

Did you rotate the throttle body 180 degrees? I like that, my throttle cable hits my elbow when I am driving mine.. Nice conversion..

How is the heat and intake noise? I am working on some ideas to keep the heat under the cover with a shifter boot of some sort and maybe raise my intake up towards the roll bars so its more quite...
