    Hi guys...

    I have a 2008 Hustler Super Z that won't start. I turn the key all the way, and hear a loud KNOCK, sounds like it's coming from under the shroud. If I hold the key in the ignition, the fuse will blow. Nothing cranks, just a loud KNOCK and a few seconds later, blown fuse.

    Any ideas? I was forced to leave the machine out exposed to the rain for a few days, maybe this caused a problem?

    Kinda rare for a Kawasaki, but it sounds like your flywheel and stator are stuck together. One of the magnets or leg of your stator is probably rubbing the inside of your flywheel.
