    Look on the engine and find the Kawasaki Model #, should be something like FH540V-CS21, yours will be different but will look similar. With that, any mower shop that deals with Kawasaki can look it up, and almost all of the Kawasaki engines take the same starter so it should be easy to find one. Almost all engine parts have to come through the engine manufacturer not through scag of whoever built the mower.

    that would be too easy. Spend hours and even days trying to find the Scag dealer will take up way to much time. It's easier to just ask a stranger where to buy it.

    What is the model number on the engine? E bay and goggle are your friends. Ask them and I bet they will have an answer! :)
