    Kawaski, definitely better. Especially the water cooled. I think they are still working the bugs out of the fuel injected models.

    Id definetly say Kohler. Kawasakis are hard starters when there cold, expensive parts and the company went direct rather than using distributers, i had a crank seal on back order for a month.

    Do you guys with water cooled units find it hard to keep debris out of the radiator?

    Dealer steered me away fom one because of that.

    no,it has a removable screen infront of radiator.Blow it out at end of day with blower.Takes less than 30 seconds.

    Your Dealer must have had a bunch of air-cooled to move,they'll tell you anything,they will lie as bad as car salesmen..;)
