I have the 17 hp kawasaki, and it was doing the same thing yours is doing. A mower mechanic told me that I probally had the gas cap on too tight, vapor lock, and should not have it too tight. I loosened it and have never had the problem since. Don`t know if it will work for you , but it worked for me.
I went down to the Crossroads
Fell down on my knees
