THEY DONT MAKE A FACTORY REPLACEMENT. YOU WILL HAVE USE SOMETHING FROM THE AUTOMOTIVE WORLD.

LOOSEN UP THE 2 BOLTS THAT HOLD THE THROTTLE BRACKET ON. SLIDE IT UP TO GET MORE RPM'S AND TIGHTEN BOLTS.

KAWASAKI HAD IT BACK IN 1988. OVER THE YEARS IT HAS BECOME ALOT CHEAPER TO BUILD. MOST LIKELY IN THE NEXT 10 YEARS, IT WILL BE THE STANDARD. NO MORE CARBS. KOHLER IS PUTTING IT ON (ABOUT 20%) OF THEIR ENGINES NOW.

THE NEW STUFF RUNS ON 30PSI OR LESS COMPAIRED TO THE 50PSI BACK IN THE DAY.

More than likely head gasket is blown as PFG56 says.    usually will start smoking when load is applied.  Also check for being overfull on oil, carbs can leak and drain into crankcase and raise oil level. a lot of times it thins the oil down so much it makes it hard to read on stick. Check air filter for oil as well.   If your breather is puking oil it normally will get into air filter as well

MAKE SURE THERE IS NO GAS IN THE OIL. IF IT IS,YOU WILL HAVE TO REBUILD THE CARB AND CHECK THE HEAD GASKET. SOMETIMES ALL THAT GAS AND OIL IN THE CYL. WILL CAUSE THE HEAD GASKET TO BLOW.

WHAT TYPE OF BELT ARE YOU USING? CLOTH WRAPED OR BLACK RUBBER? I USE TSC STEEL PULLEYS AND A CLOTH COVERED BELT WITH NO PROBLEMS.

IT'S NORMAL TO GET SOME AIR IN THE CRANKCASE.EVEN ON A REBUILD YOU WILL HAVE SOME LEAKAGE.
14  Mower Building / Setup Help / Driveline / Re: gear ratio to use only 3 gears of ur transmission on: February 06, 2015, 05:50:41 AM
I understand completely about the variables.  You are just one of only a handful that I know of that will at least admit to shifting a 700 while in motion.   I am aware of the non-synchronized gears and the light duty shift forks but just one more tid-bit if you will.  How many races do you generally get out of the tranny/shift forks before you have to replace due to shifting?

IF YOU SHIFT ALL THE TIME WHILE RACING, 1-10 RACES MAYBE. ALL YEAR IF YOU USE THE CLUTCH AND ONLY SHIFT WHEN YOU NEED TO. MOST OF THE TIME I GET A WHOLE RACE SEASON OUT OF THE KEYS.

ONE SIDE NOTE: NEVER HAUL YOUR MACHINE IN GEAR. THIS WILL BREAK KEYS QUICK.
15  Mower Building / Setup Help / Driveline / Re: gear ratio to use only 3 gears of ur transmission on: February 05, 2015, 06:03:48 AM
So do I understand you correctly that you shift while the mower is in motion?  I also am assuming that you are talking about a 700 tranny

YES ON THE 700. HE ONLY SHIFTS INTO RACE GEAR HALF WAY THROUGH THE PARADE LAP. ONCE HE'S IN RACE GEAR HE WONT SHIFT UNLESS HE HAS A 1/4-1/2 TRACK LEAD. UP SHIFTING TO A HIGHER GEAR WILL GIVE YOU MORE SPEED AND LESS ENGINE RPM'S. LESS RPM'S HELP SAVE THE ENGINE.

ALSO WHEN YOU DO SHIFT, REMEMBER TO USE YOUR CLUTCH. THAT WILL KEEP YOUR TRANS TOGETHER LONGER. SHIFTING ON THE FLY WILL TEAR ALOT OF PARTS UP.
