One update on this Kawasaki engine:  The air filter is in a bad location.  It is low on the back right next to the bagger.   I've been using a bagger.  After each use I have been vacuuming around the filter, then blowing it out from the inside with compressed air.  A scary amount of dirt is coming out.  Kaw does not put a foam pre-filter on their unit.  Kohler does.  I have added a foam pre-filter.  It helped a lot.  Saturday I was at a large auction.  There were about 15 Zero-Turns for sale.  5 of them had this engine.  I checked the air filters.  Every one of them was incredibly dirty. 

I'm thinking I might go with a bit of a snorkel set up to get it up higher with a K&N filter.  It's 2" semi-rigid hose.  Shouldn't be that hard to come up with an alternative. 

Other than that this thing has been great so far.  But, I don't like tempting fate with all that dirt.
