    Buying a new 60ztr Lazer Z in the morning & just found out that there's a engine change! Why after 20yrs are you guy's going more with the Kaw. On this model? not saying that Kaw is bad, but what should I do?

    I would suggest staying away from a brand new engine until you know it's relatively bug-free. Look at last year's 30hp Kohler that had tons of problems. Get the 27hp Kohler that is proven and reliable. One more hp isn't worth the possible headaches with a lemon of an engine in a first-year motor.

    If you didnt buy it yet, get the Kawasaki. I have both and the Kawa is far superior to the Kohler.
