Any guesses what they will offer me on trade in? 236 hours on it right now and it still looks pretty close to new.
I lifted this from Kohler's site, but my Kawi manual says the same thing. Have you tried this? I don't like to shut them down at such high rpm's (old school habit). I idle mine down for at least 30 seconds, usually a full minute before shut down, and I've had zero backfires. I just idle down while getting the blower fired up to blow everything including the mower, off.-
"Why does my engine backfire when I shut it off?
Your owner's manual lists the proper shutdown procedures to avoid this occurrence. If your engine is equipped with a fuel shut-off solenoid, be certain to set the throttle between half and full throttle before turning the key switch to OFF
