Needing some help please...
When the engine is running at a no-load situation the engine "flutters".
When engaging the blades it runs great.
Also, this engine is very hard starting when it is warmed up.
Anyone have any ideas?

Thank You!

Sounds like the carb main jet is partly plugged, A good carb cleaning should solve that problem. The hard starting could be the choke butterfly in the carb is not closing FULLY when choke is applied, A cable adjustment should solve that one.

Just got my 23 kaw out of the shop and it was that the plugs were fouled and the valves were horribly out of adjustment because it would just crank and crank and crank...they also had to replace the valve cover gaskets...ran me 300 since it just came out of warranty :-(

PLEASE tell me they did more then replace your plugs, adjust your valves and replace your cover gaskets for $300...........
