      Elijah Tate I was told If the rear tires were changed to a larger size you would have to push all the way to the bar to get it off the ground

    Help, I have a problem when chequing the CDI (Mags) when I have my 503 at 4,000 rpm and I check one CDI the RPM does not drop on the other one the engine shots off. The engine starts normally and sounds like it has always sounded this is why I think ...

      jeff trike When shut off the mag that is not working, nothing happens. When you shut off the mag that is working the engine stops.

      Diego Sagrera That is correct but I still need to know for sure if in deed I have a bad mag I am going to run some tests to be sure. It could be that I have a ground problem that is what I am hoping

      Diego Sagrera Update: Went to the air strip yesterday with my multimeter and did a Thorough check of all the electrical parts I checked the ohms for the electrical boxes (CDI) they were OK, I checked the pickup coils (Triggers) and also were OK and when checking the stator (coil kit) one phase was NOT OK. I was hoping for a short somewhere but my fear of the most expensive electrical part of my engine failing came true. I checked the price on Lockwood and on CPS and they both have the same price $750.

      Niels R. What are the differences between the Buggy and the Clipper?

      Leo Iezzi The Clipper has a luggage compartment under the engine and could mount a 912 80/100Hp Rotax engine. People claim that it's longer than the Buggy, and although I've not measured it myself, people whom owned them, and the factory tell me they're identical. The Buggy, GTE and Clipper all share the same frame.

    Hi ac er's, am trying to 'fix' up a 2002 racer with fun 14 wing. I tried to 'hop' I
    It , but the 'lift off position had me stretched out almost to the front strut. The hang brkt is in the front of three holes. I need advice on getting that bar back closer to me. I don't mind slower cruise if I move the wing back, though the previous owners had'nt moved it. I'm probably heavier than the last owner, I'm one eighth of a ton. Any thoughts on what's going on? I ain't the sharpest knife in the draw!

    I am looking for used sail fabric for my Air Creation IFUN 14 wing. My frame work is in great condition, just need the fabric. I heard there was some on out there with a wrecked, bent tube wing but the material was untouched. Any help would be great. The wing is mounted above my Air Criation 447 Racer. Andy

    Help, I have a problem when chequing the CDI (Mags) when I have my 503 at 4,000 rpm and I check one CDI the RPM does not drop on the other one the engine shots off. The engine starts normally and sounds like it has always sounded this is why I think the CDI's are ok the problem is when I check them. I thought it was the switch so I changed it and the same exact problems persist, can anyone enlight me on what to do or what to check.

    I have an "EL Gearbox Generator". It's a ROTAX 582 accessory with a 230 watt ac electric output that inserts between PTO end and gearbox. I'd like to wire it but wonder if it's ac output can be hard wired to existing Key West regulator with the 170 watt ac output of the lighting coil output (2 yellow/black wires)?

    I worry that connecting to same Key West regulator terminals as lighting output leads will damage either lighting or generator circuits?

    Of course I can simply add a second Key West regulator and have two 12 volt electric output sources.

    Anyone else out in trike world have this setup? How did you wire?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    Hi Lee, there are not too many Skyppers in the US right now so there are not many people who can comment. I looked very seriously at buying one too as I love my GTE and it's the next generation of that style. I've never flown one but I will pass on my decision. I opted for a used Tanarg instead of a Skypper. Three main reasons that I've been very happy with. #1 it's very comfortable in the back seat of a Tanarg. The Skypper is a bit less so. #2 The Tanarg has some great storage access for in flight and XC; the Skypper much less so. #3 the Tanarg (with a bigger custom made windscreen) lets me fly comfortably longer into winter temps. Yesterday I flew in 50 degrees OAT at ground and only had bar mits and a light jacket. I would wager that the Skypper is lighter and therefore a bit more maneuverable and also allows more useful load. That is a downside to the Tanarg; she's no light weight. All stuff to think about.

    Hello to all, just joined group. Wondering if anyone could give me any thoughts, or opinions on the Skypper 912? Thanks in advance

    I have a 1995 air creation racer that has several battons starting to crack at the ends. All cracks started in the rectangle tooing marks used to secure the plastic tips. Holes were drilled to stop the cracks so it's not a big deal. If you have an
    older glider with 7075 al battons, you might want to take a close look at them...

    I had some high oil temps the other day (it's hot here!) and upon investigation, I noticed the rubber trim underneath the trike and just in front of the cooler, had come lose and was partially blocking the airflow to the cooler. I put it back and glued it into position. It didn't seem a great piece of design to me, to have a piece of trim that could come free and block such a vital part. I only mention this in case anyone wants to check the security of their own trim in that area and, possibly glue it too.
