    Any chance of seeing more power on the 54" WB? You know, for people who multch when maybe it's a little high and/or wet and like to drag themselves up hills on a slider. And maybe the carb is a smidge gummy.

    Good question. There is nothing in the planning stages at this time, but it seems like we always want and need more horsepower. It will happen if the market demands it.

    Thanks for the reply. My only experience with multching is with a 20" yardman, but if it is typical, multching can require considerably more power than discharge. I looked at the Kaw website and was checking out the larger 675cc 19hp and 21hp models. I saw that they are available with a 1" shaft; would it be as simple as drilling the right space for mounting holes and droping it in? Or would it take a larger clutch and heaver belts?
