Welcome to GTTAlk. That's quite a lot of hours but the condition of the engine also depends on the maintenance it has received. I'm not sure how long the Kawi air cooled engines typically last. How does it sound and does it smoke or leak oil are some questions I would ask. The other factor is with that many hours you need to look carefully at all the wear parts like the front steering components, tires and electrical stuff, controls, mower deck parts, transmission, drive belts etc. I certainly wouldn't pay the average price for a machine with that many hours on it.
