    Lawnman,

    I talked to Kawi about this some time back. From what they had to say then is that once you get past the initial break in period (5 hour oil change) it was okay to switch to a synthetic multi-weight. They said the most significant issue with a multi-weight oil is the possibility of a slight increase in oil consumption if the engine was in top shape.

    Thanks

    Terry
