    The Rotax C Gear Box has No E Start, that's the E Gear Box. You either have to use Rotax's E Start that Bolts in place of the Rope Pull, or use a GPL Starter. I also believe they may have Discontinued the C Gear Box. CPS only lists the B & E today. There is a Belt Drive Sold on ebay that has E-Start $900.

    I'm going to use a GPL starter. Has anyone made or makes a clutch for the E box? I have heard it is possible using a GPL starter and fab work?

    =============================
    RK400 Clutch works with the C & E Gear Box. Steve beatty of Air Screw was making a Billet Starter Cover for the Rotax Type Starter. Looks HD. Starter is same off a Seadoo Jet Ski.

    Is the reason the mfg of the RK400 clutch kit stated that it wont work with a E box because of the E box starter? Everything will just bolt inplace? Will fit I just called

    Billet start housing looks great but I don't have the room for the starter orientation I need the starter to be a 90 degree to the engine like the GPL unit.
