    I love the honda engines. I have a master's series honda 21 wb with the 5.5 hp. ONly problem I have had is the max rpm setting. I have had it set at least four times since I bought it this spring and it keeps dropping down. Power is not down on the mower, the governor just seems to stretch and the rpms drop. Any idea what to do. I have checked the throttle cable and it isn't slipping, because I can still put it in choke with the throttle.

    maybe the high idle stop is loose? I can't think of anything else. I can't believe the spring looses tention. But for the money replace the spring also.
    PS. I guess the governor itself may be in the process of going out?
