I will get some pics posted in the next day or so.
They are not being installed on mowers from the factory, we have found this to be a regional situation.

I was told today we are working on the kit for your model.
When it is available to ship I will post here, or you can e-mail me and I will e-mail you.

Demo

I have a super Z 25 Kaw with an XR7 60" Demo on my trailer right now.. I've put a little over 10 hours on this machine in various conditions.. I will say that I have not mowed an account yet that the "strip" has not showed up..

This is the only draw back I can find with this machine.. This unit has the flex forks installed, combined with the sus. seat it's the smoothest ride I've had.

I am sorry to hear that there is now a problem with the "66 Deck as that's what I'm after but my dealer did'nt have one.

The problem isn't nearly as pronounced on the 66". It's not as "crisp". It's a crisp flat-top 1 1/2" strip on the 60"....on the 66" it seemed to be a rounded layover of grass that pops back up. Also, on a 66" you can slow down and it disappears, while the 60" it's there at almost all speeds.

Anyone with a demo, or that has tried a demo unit, or that owns a mower that is experiencing this, you need to run the mower with the update kit in it, and you will be amazed at the difference.
