kawi hedge trimmers

I have some kawi trimmers, when you first start them up they run great but after they warm up a little bit they die, you can start them right back up run for a min. and die, then the next time you start them they may run great for a few min. and then die again. anybody have any suggestions????

Might try replacing the fuel filter and clean the spark arrestor screen and see if that helps. You may have a bad ignition module by the machine dying when it gets hot. Hope that helps.

A lot of the newer Kawasaki 2 cycle equipment do that if the rubber piece inside of the gas cap is missing or gets too soft. Has something to do with the venting of the gas tank. you can replace the entire gas cap with the new rubber piece for about $5.00 (part number is 99996-6060)
