Is the choke part of the throttle , or is it a separate cable? Does the choke plate fully close for cold start? Remove the air filter and check the choke operation.

The choke is not part of the throttle and it's a desperate cable
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 8 months ago

OK< is the choke cable fully closing the choke plate for cold start?

it is
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 8 months ago

If the choke plate fully closes, the engine should get enough fuel to start! Do you have to open the choke to spray in the starting fluid?

X300 Deere Rider / FS600V Kawasaki engine: sporadically
sporadically shuts off after a few minutes (just after starting or backing it off the trailer), shuts off and will not start. When it runs, it runs fine for quite some time, maybe an hour or longer. It has spark, air filter is new, changed the fuel filter, changed the fuel pump. I can "bottle feed" some fuel into the air intake and it will start, run until the fuel runs out. about 750 hours on it. Runs impeccable until it shouts off. Very un trustworthy especially when I need it for my business.. I've had it in to the repair guy 3 times and he keeps guessing at what is wrong. I've read that JD/Kawasaki have had several major issues of "runnability." … read more
