Harley Trade for Zenith ????

I have a 2007 screaming egale road king black with lots of chrome. would like to possibly trade for or towards a zenith product finished or not. I’ve owned a 601 XLB and loved the aircraft but frankly any Zenith product will be considered. Let me know if you’re interested.  The value for the Harley Screaming Egale is around 12,000 retail but i’m open to discussion. My email is flyguy1117@ail.com. happy to send additional or specific photos just let me know. Joe DSee More

Jabiru 3300 charging issue (lack of charging is more the issue)

Happy Holidays,I recently bought a 601XLB with a 3300 Jabiru.  I've learned now that in cold weather the engine does not like to start very well and that part of the reason for that is the charging system is a little less then a stellar performer at low RPM's.I found a procedure from Jabiru that once completed should definitely help but I'm wondering if anyone has come up with a better solution for the issue.  I've attached the Jabiru bulletin below.ThanksJoe D.See More

Hi Joe,
Yes, I still fly as much as I can, about 2 hours this weekend. I own a 1994 Kitfox IV Speedster and I enjoy cruising low over intercostal waterway. I have flown it OSH and Long Island along with a number of flights around FL and GA. Good luck with your 601.
