So i did my next challenge today, i removed the Hydro static drive unit and did an oil change i used 20/50 synthetic oil (Kawasaki branded semi synthetic)
interesting experience , i found it all quite easy to do. took about 3 hours, but now i know i could probably halve that

only moment of fear was when i got it all back together and idling it didn't want to move, i believed i had primed it adequately before assembly,
anyway after a few gentle forward and reverse pedal actions at idle it took off, and works beautifully

it has 195 hours on it and the oil looked pretty good and just a minimum amount of sludge on the magnet

so ill probably leave it now for another 200 hours
