    I have a kaw 21hp and an oil changing is approaching. I am needing feedback so I can get the best oil for my mower. Thanks. And BTW I did the search function and still need more information.

    Go with a well known name brand. And, I would stick with it. I have went through different types of brands because some tend to burn quicker than others in a short time. What have you been using, or is this the first time?

    It is the first time for me to change it. I think kawi uses castrol synthetic, but IDK. What do you use?

    Kawasaki uses their own brand of 4 cycle engine oil, not-synthetic.
    Go by your local Harley Davidson dealer and pick up some HD 360 oil--NOT the Syn 3--it is specifically formulated for aircooled V-Twins...good stuff!

    Use whatever works the most important thing, other than brand (LOYALTY) is changing oil ''keep it clean keep it longer''

    On my dads 21 kawi I just use mobil one 10w-30 as I do with all of my engines. Dont forget to change the oil filter. :)

    10W-30 from Wal-Mart. It's cheap.
