I recently purchased a 2006 BB Lightning with the 26 horse liquid cooled Kawasaki and 60 inch deck. It looks like new and has 180 hrs on it. I think it is gonna be a fine mower, but have a few questions for some of the owners/dealers on here. 1. Engine starts great when choked, will not even try to start when not choked, even when warm. It runs fine off choke once started. Is this normal? 2. I've read on here that Bad Boy changed the baffles in their decks. What year was the deck changed? Does the 2006 have the new deck or old deck? I've noticed the rear anti scalp rollers have been moved outside the deck on the 2008 models, but did not notice any other difference. 3. Throttle seems to have play in it. Almost like it is idle or wide open, with hardly any adjustment in the midrange. It just feels like slack in the middle, like the lever is moving, but not the cable. This normal or something I should get fixed? 4. Anyone know where I can find a manual for the engine? How about a service manual for the mower? Bad Boy makes a great mower, but their owners manual sucks.
