Where can I get my paramotor serviced?
updated November 17, 2021
Having a paramotor that does not run can be very frustrating! The technical pages on this site exist because our students were unable to find the help they needed to service and repair their own engines.
If you cannot service your own paramotor, your dealer is not knowledgeable, or you do not have the time, the best shops to get service for paramotors are chainsaw, dirt bike, or go-kart shops. They are all familiar with diaphragm carburetors like the Walbro. Motorcycle shops rarely service engines that are carbureted. Nonetheless, shops will need access to this site for specifications. It is best to stay away from lawnmower shops as they are as likely to fix things as to make a bad situation worse.
Southwest Airsports can diagnose and professionally repair any paramotor engine or the parts thereof. If you know exactly what you want done e.g., the engine top end, redrive, or carburetor rebuilt you may ship to us the individual part, including just the engine. Keep in mind that it is common to have more than one part of a paramotor that is not working correctly. If you are not sure what is wrong with your paramotor, you must ship us the *entire paramotor* including the propeller and harness. This is required so the paramotor can be flight tested. The least expensive round trip shipping for an entire paramotor is UPS or FEDEX ground which averages about $150 round-trip.
If you require our services, please follow these instructions.
