    If it's not broke don't fix it.

    The manual says 1470 is normal for a reason I assumed?

    What engine, plane and altitude are you flying?

    Make sure when you guys read a manual the part you are reading is for the right engine. 

    I personally don't know a single person that is running it the mid 1400's in cruise rpm  They are in the 1300's and some see 1400's on rpm reduction to the mid 4K rpm's

    I don't think you have any thing to worry about or fix. Rotax setup its engine's in a specific manner for a reason. Changing running parts and parameters have cost some new engines. $20K.

    Might be better here to let sleeping dogs lye.

    What's the right engine? I go back and read it.

    This a slsa kitfox with a zipper top end.

    It is fine at cruise but full throttle goes too high. what does 1470 normal mean then?

    "This a slsa kitfox with a zipper top end"

    This is why you most likely have high ECT's at the top end. If it's an SLSA did you get a Letter of Approval to put the zipper system in?
