    The SuperZ I used to own (27hp Kaw LC) developed a start-up delay problem. When you turned the key, sometimes the starter would hit, sometimes it wouldn't, and sometimes it would delay a few seconds and then hit. Dealer replaced the starter under warranty.

    Now, my 26hp Kaw LC is doing a similar "delay" start-up. You turn the key, wait a second or two, and then it turns over. It started out as a short delay but now has slowly gotten longer. This has also coincided with the colder weather.

    The unit has a little over 600 hrs.. The battery connections are clean as I cleaned them well when I had the battery out replacing the hydraulic oil and filter.

    Any ideas before I take it in? Thanks:)

    It could be a variety of things, my guess would be a connection or a relay, but your dealer really needs to take a look at it, get it in there and let them diagnose and fix it, thats what they are there for.
