    Hi PJ, Just want to know if there is a different heat shield that goes under the muffler on the Kawi 31 SZ. The shield is to small and turf is getting scorched.

    I know Im not the only one with this problem.
    Is there an updated shield for the Kawi 31 available?

    Cheers
    Mick

    Mick, I was screamin at my dealer 1st week out we has scorched spots showing up at the 4-5 day mark.. Installed the shields, but if you are idle for long you'll still get some burn.. Kind of hard to explain to the ole retired folks "well I'd like to chat but my machine is ruining your grass":nono:
