    Why is Honda's break in period 20 hours while the Kawi and Kohler are 8 and 5 respectively. I haven't picked up my fastrak yet, but I downloaded the manual from Hustlers website and it doesn't mention anything about breakin procedures.

    Thank you

    The Hustler manual says the following under the maintenance section.

    Initial oil change is after 5 hours of operation. Thereafter, change oil after
    every 40 hours operation. Change more often under dusty or dirty conditions
    and during hot weather periods.

    As to why Honda is different from other's, I don't know.
    I would go by our manual.
