It is now time to replace the motor on one of my machines and my mechanic is recommending replacing it with a Kawasaki. I have been leaning that direction.
After reading the information you linked, the decision has pretty much been made and my question in a thread I started last night has been answered.
Kawisakis are amazing engines for what we do, if you have the means I would go with one all the way. Also I have found that changing the plugs on the briggs engine helps signifigantly with the *blub blurb blub chug* of the Z sprays.
