    i am having lots of problems now with my kawasaki motor. It ran perfect 3 weeks ago then i took the deck off of it to paint. Now i go to start it back up and nothing. So i figure the batteries dead but the charger says it has power. When i hook the charger up to it now only the starter turns but does not turn over the motor. And when it does want to turn it over it turns it a quarter of inch and you hear grinding. But when i turn it with my hand it turns fine but i get a loud backfire after a couple of turns. I need help on this asap. Lucky im buying a new ztr in a couple of weeks but i still need this walkbehind for hillls:dizzy:
