    Every year you upgrade the Walk line-up....Bigger filler opening, hydro parking brake, better engine choices...etc.

    Any clues on upgrades or major changes for /05 on the Walks?

    I talked to a dealer yesterday who told me that the '05 models are identical to the '04 models. Price on the TT went up 5% and the TTHP went up $100 though. Hope this helps.

    Guys,

    We also added the 19 hp Kaw to the TThp 48 and TThp 52". Standard on the 52 and optional on the 48.

    The Metro looses the single cylinder Kawi and sports the 13 hp Kawi twin. TTHP/Metro HP deck and hydro idlers (TTHP only) have a new pivot for greater reliability and less maintenance.

    Not many other changes for this year..........we didn't find that much that was broke.

    Thanks

    Terry

    Being able to change deck height from operator position...like on the new Husqvarna Walks would be Nice & so would a Flip Up Deck....Otherwise there isn't much that needs improvement.

    19hp/48" TracerHP....Priceless..

    Add One of these ------>http://lawnsite.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=20583&stc=1

    Terry, does the new deck idler pivot cure the pulley bounce and will it fit my 02?

    Dishboy,

    No probably not. The new idler pivot extends lubrication intravals, reduces the likelihood that the idler pivot will seize or become "sticky". It also helps reduce the possibility of improper installation.

    The bounce of the idlers on some machines.......TTHP and MHP in particular can often look severe yet not effect anything. The most consistant comment we get on the TTHP is that at low rpm it the deck idler tends to bounce a great deal. At higher rpm it goes away. It's not really effecting anything and the everything is designed for high rpm and not low rpm use.

    Thanks

    Terry, im not sure whether or not your engineers thought of this yet, but Kaw puts out a canister air filter kit for that engine. It would be super if that came stock, but if not make sure to inform the dealers that the kit is available. I added it to my 19 kaw and the dealer didnt even know the kit existed.

    Mac,

    I'll need to get with Kawasaki and find out what all is required to mount the cannister. Historically some engines have required carb updates, changes etc.

    We Do,

    The height adjustment on the walks is something that is still on our "to investigate" list however the engineers are pretty busy working with production getting the Naviagator and Laze XS models up to full production.

    Thanks for the reminder. I'll mention it to our product development team again.
