    I've got a John Deere GS 45 with a kawi 14 hp. Went to start it last night and pulled the pull starter out. After 2 hours of trying to get it back to normal I've only got 3/4 of the length of the rope now. Does anybody know what it would cost for a new pull starter or would I have to go through Deere to get one. Or is there another place to get one since the kawi is a common motor??

    Heavens to Mergatroid, why don't you just replace the rope? Kawi recoils are made to be worked on. Need instructions? I will be glad to give them to you.
