The maintenance schedule for my mower states that lapping the valves and cleaning the combustion chamber should be done every 300 hours, does anyone do this on a regular basis?

Look, I don't own one, I just fix 'em. But from what I've seen and read, I would have to say a resounding no.

Outta sight, outta mind, right ?


It's a good bet that Kaw. prolly puts that out there just to cover their A$$, knowing that nobody is gonna do that.

I don't know who writes this stuff, must be an engineer :angry:

The only thing I would tell you to do is pop the valve covers off and check are the valve clearances once a year. Change the oil and filter every 100 hours and keep the fins clean.
