That, ( and most all) Kawaclackies are designed to run at 3600 top rpm. I set most all the units I work on at 3600 rpm , regardless of brand.
Most all the commercial duty hydro pumps are also designed to operate at 3600 rpm input.
I would not hesitate to run it at 3600, no load. It won't hurt a thang!

I have it set at 3600 rpm but it drops down to 3300 rpm with the blades on. Is this a normal drop in rpm or is it to much of a loss?

Seems a bit much. I'd check the plugs,etc, maybe go over the governor settings.

Do a google search for "kawasaki fr691v service manual" and check out the fuel/ gov. section. It will tell ya what ya need to do.

Thanks for the advice and guidance in my matters with my Kawasaki. I will try tinkering with setting my governor over the week-end since I am working from sun up to sun down during the week. I checked my plugs and they seem to be normal.

Thanks
