The need to replace all rubber parts is not a requirement set by Evektor, but a ROTAX requirement that Evektor upholds. The ROTAX Line Maintenance manual dated 09-20-12, Section 05-10-00, paragraph 2.1 page 8 and subject head “Time limit for rubber parts” is the section that mandates that all 5 year rubber parts must be replaced. That section states that the following components and systems must be replaced every 5 years:
- venting hose of the carburetors
- all rubber hoses of the cooling system
- all rubber hoses of the fuel system (not-including teflon hoses)
- all rubber hoses of the lubrication system which are part of the engine supply volume and if they are not in the maintenance schedule of aircraft manufactuer
- carburetor sockets
- connecting hose of the air intake system
- diaphragm on both carburetors
- rubber hoses on compensating tube
- Fuel pump and insulating flange, if this is fixed with fuel hoses
*note: ROTAX Engines are tailored to suit the equipment they run. Therefore, Evektor Aircraft are not equipped with all items listed above (such as the v-belt).

Due to the dramatic differences between Lycoming/Continental engines compared to ROTAX engines, ROTAX has set guidelines as to who is allowed to work on ROTAX engines denoted in Section 05-00-00 paragraph 1.2 page 4 subject head Authorized Personnel. That is why many ROTAX owners have their work done by a ROTAX certified mechanic who has been to the factory training workshop and holds the following certificates: Inspection, Line Maintenance, and Heavy Maintenance.
Evektor only reiterates the ROTAX mandatory safety bulletins, optional bulletins are not duplicated by evektor.
You and your mechanic/repairman need to review the service bulletins for the aircraft and for any manufacturer of the equipment installed on your aircraft. Web link is: http://www.evektoraircraft.com/en/service-support/list-of-bulletins/sportstar
