@ John Savage : Do you have plans to add this carb on the Jet tech software ?

Hello Lee, for more than 2 years I have been working on 4 cilinders to found some HP. For the moment I have 33,8 hp on the wheels and a engine with a width power band. Engine has now 15 houres , no problem at all. It’s a real pleasure driving it.
First of all ==> writing about HP is much easier than having them realy on a testbench. Believe me it’s a lot of trail and error. Bigger ports doesn’t always mean more power guys, it’s not that simple. I had more power with a smaller exhaust port than a bigger….. you don’t want to have all your fresh gases going without burning into your exhaust pipe and cool it down….
The Krauss max doesn’t have a reliable image in europe and not very popular.
The Polini kit has the same problem ( mine had 3h and boemmmmm :-(
The DD2 cilinder or supermax only has high rpm output , I was not impressed because of the lack of bottom and middle power.
What I have done :
I have the ignition you have mentionned but directly from the OEM without rev limiter.
Modified cilinder ( additional booster ports, modified A, B, C ports )
Other cil head & piston
Handmade exhaust & muffler.
I will try to post some pictures to make it more visuel.
just a question : what’s the price of a Rotax max cilinder in your country ?

The sensor 265560 is placed in the carter of the engine to mesure the crank revs , no oil there. Order part 431500.

He told me that the pick up has an original spacer, he has added the same one. ( 2 in total ). Hope this will work for you.

On the underside of the engine you have a sensor for your crankshaft rotation.
Take it out, put an O ring spacer to have the sensor farther away from the crank.
I’m not running DD2 but a tuned Senoir, one day I was next to a professional team in the pitlane, running DD2 , they had the same problem. They changed carb, wirings,ignition coil etc etc. Madness. Until the moment a technician from another team came in and he told them to place the o ring spacer.
10 minutes later , problem solved.
I hope this will work for you ….
