Most Hours on Kawasaki Motor

I posted this in the wrong forum yesterday. I think I have it right now:

What is the most number of hours you have put on an air-cooled Kawasaki motor 19hp or larger before it needed rebuilding?

I had a FH430V with 550 hours on it and it crapped out and locked up. Fluky thing, Upper bearing on the crankshaft, thus allowing the flywheel to drop into the stator and lock it up. Replaced it with another kawi tho.

I loved the 23 kaw's. I had one blow up around 1800 hours. I still say it has more power than the 23 kohlers.
