    No anything that fits a kohler will work kohler brand or after market for kohler. The muffler is not a big deal all companys use almost the same thing some just mount differently dont be afraid to try a muffler for a briggs or whatever.

    I called the company in the first link and they couldnt even tell me for sure. Id like to get a reply from someone that has done a new/switch of the mufflers to make sure it will work with mine.
    Thank you for the reply bigdodge, Id like to be 100% on it

    My 8-5 job involves repairing lawn mowers and i figured since i repair them I can mow and make a little extra and not have to worry about equiment problems and i get a nice disscount on parts

    Those muffler in the pic came off a 11 to 12.5 briggs and statton and some of the k series kohler motors up to 14 hp and they were all non ohv bet they are extremly loud those usually burn out in like 100 hours

    these are no different from a car you can take it to a muffler shop and they may even be able to help you. Looks like you got enough room to fit a midas muffler in that thing

    My favorite I have this one silencing my kohler 20 hp twin cam and 24 hp briggs vtwin
    this muffler is actually made for a twin cylinder and the bolts can be removed and any other deflector can be atached or none at all ( pics below)

    Those are not 'baffles,' those are standard Kohler mufflers,
    whether they pertain to that engine I could not tell you but
    my 20hp Kohler has them.

    The question being, how do we know it won't be JUST as loud?
