Question about kawasaki Garden

1 Answer

I am working on a toro zero turn mower with a Kawasaki FH601V motor. The motor will start up and and idle fine however when you throttle up it boggs out. Air filter and carb is clean. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This sounds like a main jet issue. What is a concern is I presume it was okay, before, so that would mean jet restrictions....

Try turning main jet richer or leaner by 1/4 turn and test again...Otherwise, carb surgery will be needed.

Toro zero turn mower with Kawasaki 691v 24.0 horse motor starts cutting out and smoking after running for about 20 minutes.

Check the oil to make sure you don't have gas getting in your oil. If that's not a problem then you may have a leaking head gasket.

sounds lie it's starving for gas.

I just bought a new toro ss5000 22 hp kawasaki and it will not start, has gas, oil level seems ok turns over fine.

there has to be a safety mechanism you are over looking. check that you have spark. if not then it is a sensor, if so then check you have fuel flow. being brand new i am thinking you are just over looking something simple. if all else fails try a small amount of starting fluid through the carburetor and see if it starts and runs on that. I know that sometimes after I rebuild a unit it takes some "help" to get it going then it runs and works fine
