The 94c won't handle the horsepower from the rotax. Go with the 102.

The 580 Rotax had the same bottom end as a 583. I believe it was like $125 for the end of the crank. The later sled and PWC engines seemed to diverge, but may still have common components. The Rotax numbers are not displacement, they are model/series numbers. I would start by looking at a type 597 and see if the stroke is the same as a 587. If so, maybe the cranks are interchangeable.
