    I have a 17hp surfer it lopes at idle and goes almost away at full throttle. One dealer says that, they all do it. One says it is a govornor problem. Any suggestion on what it could be. thanks

    I think most of the 17hp kaw's do that, not really a lope as much as a surge. I've had several that do this, worse when cold. I think it's fine, we'll see what they say here.

    It's true that this does occur from time to time. Let your dealer check it out if you are still not satisfied have him get the Kawasaki tech support people involved.
