Hello all, I just wanted to make anybody aware that hasn't had this issue before to annually or biannually remove the shroud off the kawi 17hp to remove grass and debris from the fins to avoid overheating. I lost a motor after 1200hrs this way. I am faithful about service. I had no idea debris has built up on the heads causing to overheat. somone had suggested I put a filter over the starter housing to prevent grass and dirt from building up. Again, I'm sure some of you are aware I wasn't. If I save a couple engines in this post it was worth it to me. Wishing everyone a safe summer.
