i have read the report on the other forum, and the temps went high, but high temps for a short period doesn't have much to do with abnormal cylinder wear, or the crankshaft journal wear caused by the SB. Significant wear of cylinder barrels at 730 hours???

my 912 now has 1000 hrs, flown hard, cruise at 5200rpm, flown regularly on days with OATs in the 40's plenty of short field work with max angle climbs to 1000 agl or more. and still can see the factory hone marks on the cylinder walls.

a Rotax powerplant in a Jabiru airframe and they would almost quite literally have a bulletproof aircraft on their hands...
