    I changed my oil this weekend and what a mess I made. I followed what the Kawasaki manual said was the drain plug and oil spilled everywhere. I read in another post a reference to a tube. I took a look today at the parts diagram online and it shows a tube. I called Ferris to see why I didn't have a tube and they told me that there is a tube but it's located on the opposite side of where Kawasaki says it is. They said it's a mistake on their part and is either going to ask Kawasaki to change the manual or they will install the tube on the opposite side. I think the latter would be better.

    Just so you don't make the same mistake I made, I thought I would post this.

    Yeah, new mower and wanted to verify I had the correct drain plug. Obviously I didn't.
