    You will need to shut the engine off at full or 3/4 throttle to stop this or at least minimize it from happening.
    It is just a characteristic of these Kohler engines.

    Yep, the 27s do too. Its annoying, but from what I understand its normal and not hurting anything. The EFI doesnt backfire, still my favorite.
