    Default What do these things mean?

    Okay, if someone can point me in the right direction, if it isn't posted in the Premium pages, I would be eternally grateful.

    I have a yellow Rotax, and though I have a couple of numbers from the top, have no idea what they mean. I found a bunch of numbers in the forward tank compartment labelled Votre# and Noire# What in tarnation are these?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    The words are french. The word Votre refers to the word "name" and the word Noire refers to the color "black".
    Looking for tips and advice, researched articles on carbs, spark plugs and general maintenance can be found at Snipes Korner. You can also follow me on "Twitter".

    Quality parts at low prices, visit Seadoowarehouse right here in our own forum. Please PM me if you are having a problem finding what you need!

    Is your jet ski fast? Do you want your XP or RXP to stand out? I know a place that has what you need to make it faster. Make your jetsksi a muscle craft, not just the ordinary, standard stock ski.

    Seen my GTX?... Those awesome graphics can be purchased from JetSki Detailing. Tell them Seadooforum sent you.

    Ever wonder what the inside of your 787cc engine looks like. Want to identify the parts, check out my thread on the 787. I'm sure there is something for everyone who want to learn about the internal parts.

    okay, now I am even more confused. The numbers I have are Votre#: 29100197 and the Noire#: 700112410. I just can't wrap my mind around it.

    The numbers I found on the head is 913, then 270/275.

    I found a reference for the Hull number so thats Figured out, lolol. According to the Hull number I have a 1990, built in 1989.

    Being the age that it is, that means I don't need a programmed lanyard key?

    Is an hour meter okay to install? There are no guages or indicators of any kind on this so I am wondering what I can do with it.

    Hi Dusthawk,
    I have some answers for you but not all.
    Your ski doesn't have a coded key system. That wasn't used until 1996 or so.
    You say your engine color is yellow. Your engine size is commonly referred to as a "580" although your engine is actually 587 CC's. Rotax built a "yellow" 580 and a "white" 580. There are big differences between the yellow and the white engines and you need to remember this if you are trying to get parts.
    The last two digits of the serial no. refer to the year of the ski....89=1989.

    I plan on becoming a premium member as soon as I can afford it. I am disabled so my income isn't that great right now. I might be able to work by sometime this summer but it isn't likely. I will probably need a couple more surgeries in the coming months but until we can get more MRI's I don't know for sure.

    Ran into a stumbling block today. Is there a bracket or something that mounts the choke cable? Where I thought it goes the cable isn't long enough. There is a notch like thing on the base of the Carb where I thought it went but it is about an inch too far away from the choke lever arm.

    Default Choke?

    Yeah, the choke cable should run along the top end of the carbs where it hooks to a small metal plate. You pull on the cable to slide it through because the wire is the only thing meant to slip through. Then the two nuts on the treaded side of the cable tighten against each other on that piece of metal to hold them in place.
