The Spyder uses a longer filter than the other applications using the same Rotax motor. As far as I know, BRP is the only source for this filter to date.

I tried using filters for the other Rotax 998 applications and they are all too short.

    The SM5 and SE5 Spyder both use the same engine oil filter. Same as the Buell 1125 and the extended filter for the Aprilia (using the same 998 Rotax). The SE5 Spyder uses an additional Transmission Filter which was updated to a longer dimension in 2012. Both the engine filter and the original, shorter transmission filter are made by Hi-Flo, K&N and BikeMaster. However, BRP is the only source for the longer transmission filter.

Yes, the water coming out of your exhaust is part of the cooling. It cools the exhaust pipe and the rubber hoses so they won't melt.

Spark plug gap for 503 Rotex

Hi Faye,

I found this,

Rotax spark plug advisory for ultralight, experimental lightsport, amateur built aircraft.

Rotax 2 stroke aircraft engine spark plugsThe recommended spark plugs for the Rotax 277, Rotax 377, Rotax 447, Rotax 503, Rotax 532, Rotax 582 are the NGK B8ES series or the NGK BR8ES ( the R in the spark plug denotes it is a resistor plug and should be used in all of the CDI ignition engines.

BUT the Bosch points ignition engines should NOT use both a resistor plug and a resistor spark plug cap - use one or the other.

The least expensive option in the long run is the cap as you purchase it once while the resistor plugs cost more than the standard plug each time you buy them.

Ad Code TwoHere

Use spark plugs that have a SOLID TIP - DO NOT USE spark plugs that have an aluminum screw on tip. They vibrate loose, the tip wears making a loose cap to plug fit, and can lead to the spark plug arcking across from the cap to the plug. Also the screw on style spark plugs are NOT designed for our applications, the gap is generally set up for .030 to .035 thou. The solid tip spark plugs are set up for a gap of .015 to .020 thou.

Spark plug gap

  • Allowable range: 0.4-0.5mm / .015 -.020"

  • Optimal: I usually set them to .015 and let them wear out to .019

  • This also helps getting the engine started in colder conditions
