I talked to my dealer today. I have a problem with my oil plug in my 23 HP Kaw. I wanted him to rig something and he let me in on a little secret. If ANYTHING happens to your Kaw, while under warranty, the part or engine(whatever the case may be) gets sent to Kaw. If they decide that there is nothing wrong with there product, the bill is on you. No matter what the warranty says. They have to see that there product has failed for the warranty to pay for it!! Just a little food for thought.
