    Rotax High Boost Wheel Pricing

    Is there a reason for the price volatility in the rotax high boost wheel? First it was $450..then $495..then $551..then back to $495..now it's a little over $600..A s3 WITH housing is only $120 more, give or take a couple dollars..

    I beleive that wheel is different from the ones that were offered before that were around 500. But i still agree for that much go with the S3 wheel.

    I have to agree 600+ is way over priced.

    No, its the same wheel. I don't know what the hell Rotax Racing is thinking. They are pricing themselves right out of the market. No one in their right mind would pay that kind of money for an impeller.

    Did you see the price of the cam and Rotax Racing EMS system?
    I'm glad i got my EMS when it was only $3500

    Yep, the recent price increase of the RR parts is due to the weak dollar.

    Ok, it went back down again!

    i'm not sure where you guys are getting these prices from. the RR performance impeller has always been $495.00 us and the racing impeller with the shim has always been $595.00.
    prices may go up slightly soon though if the us dollar continues to decline.

    Mark, I see that the $604 is for the new s/c impeller. The changes from $450-$550 and back to $495 I have seen with my own two eyes though. I'm just going by what has been listed in Jerry's online store for the past few months. The price changes are more justifiable now that the $600 is for a different impeller.
