I looked into the Cub Cadet lead, and it appears that the clutch has a 1" bore.  The Kawasaki website clearly says 25MM bore for that engine.  Is it possible that Kaw puts a 1" shaft in some, 25mm in others?  I think the only way is to take a dial caliper to the engine and see once and for all.  If indeed it IS a 25mm shaft, how comfortable with any of you be with installing a bushing to make up the difference?  It would essentially by a piece of appropriate thickness shim stock, single layer, wrapped around the shaft.

All FR651V engines should be the same, I would think.  If Kaw did put two different shaft's in that engine then they should state that in the spec's.  I think that cub clutch will fit. Take the caliper and check your engine.

Did you ever get this resolved?

How much and where were you able to buy the FR651V for?


I have to replace the piston rings on my engine and was shopping around engine prices.
