Rotax Throttle Return Springs

Stop throttle creep!


A common complaint about the Rotax 912/914 engines is that the throttle return springs are too strong. McFarlane stocks a variety of springs so you can choose the one that best fits your application. All McFarlane throttle controls for Rotax engines include P/N 7140 springs.


Unique hook design for left and right applications provides for better fit and retention.


  • New design limits potential contact with adjacent parts
  • Less than half the strength of the original stock Rotax springs
  • Tailored for Rotax engines, including the Vans RV-12 aircraft
  • Prevents throttle "creep" due to excessive return spring force
  • Requires 1 per carburetor (2 per engine)


Spring P/N Relaxed Spring Length (max in) Approx. Pre Load (lbf) Spring Rate (lbf/in)
