I bought it around a year ago and its only been giving me a problem. I used to have a 1996 xp and an 83 kawasaki standup that never had problems but this one always does. It was smoking a lot and I redid the oil pump and it stopped smoking. It then would not go over 3000 rpm so i cleaned and rebuilt the carbs but that didn't help. I changed the whole front electrical because it would keep shutting off every few seconds when idling. Now it doesn't start up and the 12V light & MAINT keeps beeping, even though i just put a brand new battery into it.
