Engine is twin engine Kawasaki. Run a cylinder test. loosen the spark plug wires and with engine idling, remove one spark plug wire at a time, to see if engine continues to run. If engine dies when one wire is removed, the opposite cylinder is not firing. On Kawasaki, check for spark to plug, compression, and the valves.
