Did Kawi keep the same mounting pattern for FC420V to V-twin?

    I found a great deal on a new Kawi 15 V-twin and need to know if they use the same mounting bolt patern as the FC420V I'll be replacing.
    Thanks in advance, John...

    I replaced a Kawi FC540 17 hp single with a 14 FC 420. same bolt pattern.

    It was on a 52 Lesco belt. to get less weight on drive wheels. The 14 works

    great. The 15 should bolt up. Watch out for electric clutches. Ed

    Thanks, I thought it looked the same. This 15hp twin is going on a Bobcat Ransom 48" hydro WB so no electrics at all. Well other than the ignition.

    I would need to know your original spec# but possible replacements for the FC420V recoil starts are FH430V-CS21-S and CS22-S.
    Hope this helps:)
