Ive had a Sonik, Leopard, and now a Rotax. By far the most expensive to keep going was Sonik than the Leopard. Rotax is the most reliable affordable engine out of them all. 24 hours on engine and nothing has broken. Just basic maintenance.
Will have new piston and crank and rod checked this off season. Its first time back to a Rotax service center. I could keep going finished 2nd in points 3 years in a row with this engine in CES Tag Masters.
Enjoy blowing up a leopard if you get one…..
