    Ok, I am once again going to purchase another ztr. I have a choice between the 25hp Kaw. or the Kohler. Which one would you go with? This will be on a 61" Great Dane Chariot.

    I prefer the Kohler over the Kawasaki. My dealers Kohler rep. has
    gone the extra mile for me in the past. ED

    If your a gambler or have masochistic tendencies, I'd say go with the Kohler.

    I think the toilet maker makes a better toilet than engine :)
    I refuse to buy a kohler on anything.

    Dave dont forget BOAT anchors aka. the Kohler 25HP motor.

    I'd never buy a 25 again.

    I own a Kohler 26EFI and LOVE it.

    Yes, This would be either a 25hp Kawasaki or a 25hp Kohler. I have 2) 25hp Kohlers already but have heard alot of people say the 23 Kawasaki will outperform the 25hp Kohler. So, I wanted to know what any of you that may have had the 25hp Kawasaki had to say about the performace vs. the 25hp Kohler. I have a couple of days to decide so any input is appreciated.

    This is a no-brainer,get the kawi.The kohler 25 is a weak engine,both powerwise,and durability too.
