Customer Question

I have Kawasaki ohv fd590v water cooled engine, after starting the motor runs fine for about 2 minutes then it runs rough and begins to backfire and then dies, could this be governor if so do you have to pull engine or can it be fixed by removing bottom plate and replacing gear.

This is not governor problem.

How long after it quits, will it restart? Do you have to do anything to get it to start again?
