Should I spend the bucks?

Postby scubarider2 » Thu Jul 17, 2014 8:55 pm

Anyone have experience with these on their Rotax 912uls?

Advanced Soft Start Start Module Kit
Replaces both 6 - pin modules (or 4 pin with some re-wiring) to include the new "Soft Start" feature. Consider using this kit to upgrade both your modules instead of replacing one failed unit. Containes two new style modules.

Price: $940.91

Heavy price tag....but so is replacing your sprag clutch!
Wonder if it will help my slow start problem?

I purchased the same kit for my 912ULS. They give you the pins to wire the soft start, you just supply wiring to the starter relay. It is cheaper to buy the soft start set than replacing with the original boxes. No other modifications are needed. They are identical in size/installation as the originals. They fixed my problem and the engine starts every time.
