    Mine did that a couple of weeks ago. Baffle had broke loose in the muffler. Replaced the exhaust with HMF and better than new. Found a good deal on the exhaust. Lemme know if that is it and I’ll try to come up with the name of the place I bought from.

    Check that baffle in the muffler too.

    How does it run? I mean...is it sputtering or hesitating?

    I hope its not, but what you describe is what others seem to describe when the cam goes out on these. Did you notice how much movement the valves had when you were finding TDC doing the valves?

    Widespread probably is too strong a word, but it does happen on occasion. @Farmer is the most recent member i can recall. I think if you Google this it goes all the way back to the Rincon and seems to affect machines that idle a lot or are stop/started often. Like farm work.

    Some have claimed the cam was updated, but it doesn't seem that way. Whats funny is that the cam sits in a little tray that holds oil, so it shouldn't ever dry start. This is reason #1 why I always checked the valves at the intervals in the manual.

    That's probably what he was thinking about.

    There are several of these out there with 10K+ miles. It's not something I would worry about.

    And lets hope @BRK's is something much simpler.

    Another thing is he has only 500 miles.. and Farmer is the only cam issue I can remember in almost 5 years and three forums.. and Farmers dealer told him it was a common issue for people the start and stop a lot.I believed it was just bad luck or a bad cam to begin with. I dont believe it was anything @Farmer was doing wrong.
    It sounds more like the baffle collapse Or restricted in take.JMO

    Hope you figure it out. Here is the exhaust and seller info from eBay. The price showed $238 but I typed in a code they offered and got it shipped for $203. I didn’t see anymore on there but there were a few when I ordered mine. You may contact them direct to see if they have any left.
