    Mine fluctuates with oil temp. When I'm in the 240 range it's low. When I'm cold it's around 60

    The more I read, the more I think the bottom lip extension is a bandaid solution. As it stands now I think the oil cooler stacked in front of the rad...

    Thanks for chiming in Phil. I was wondering the aerodynamic drag penalty of going with no tips and just a carbon sheet screwed to the end. I...

    Hello, I read your posts on the bicycle mount. I have a similar issue. I like the Kitfox but I am looking at the Highlander and the Bearhawk so I can take two full size mountain bikes ( like to ride 29ers, so they are kinda large). Did you finish designing it? IF so, could you please send me pictures?
    Thank you very much,
    Alejandro

    Josh Buddy,

    It's Rory from the LMRP Project. Congrates on the delivery of your kitfox 7 and also the engagement.

    I'm finally going to go look at a kitfox IV on UPAC with the 912. As long as the maintenance logs check out and compression is good it may be a good deal considering some ppls 80hp 912's go up to 2000hrs Other than regular maintenance intervals and compression checks, what do you think would be a good idea to check out for the 912?

    Take Care Man,


    Rory
