912iS warranty period
Does someone know when the warranty on subject engine begins, ie: upon receipt of engine, upon install in aircraft, etc., and how long it is? Trying to figure out the timing of placing the order. Thanks:)

I believe the meter starts running when you receive it from Vanís, I bought a recently completed 12 and I am in the process of finding out the hard way that the warranty is very short, donít get engine until you can reasonably be ready to install and fly.

912 Rotax 912iS warranty
I did a little research and received the following:

It looks like initially it's 12 mos, but with proper lubrication, etc. it can be extended to 24 mos. This is all predicated upon receipt of the engine within 6 mos after manufacture.

It would appear that one should plan on installation within a year of receipt.Hopefully I'll meet their criteria.
