i am not familiar with these engines. my brother has one and is replacing the stator. when he removed the casing there was oil in the pull start casing and around the stator. i'm pretty sure the pull start casing should be dry but am unsure if the stator casing should be dry. any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not familiar with your particular engine, but for the most part Kawasaki engines rely on oil as a coolant and lubrication on the stators of some of the older street bikes(Z1's,Kz900's,Kz1000's,Kz1100's, and GPz1100's).

The over running starter clutches on the above bikes are located behind the alternator rotor and again need oil as a lubricant.

stator is wet, pull is dry. Or it's supposed to be! LOL!

Go to Kawasaki.com to "owner info" and enter what year model and type it is. Click on "parts diagram" and look up the alternator section. That'll tell you if there is a seal or oring or gasket under the pull starter.

Do search for KLF300 CDI and you'll find a whole bunch of posts about them. At one time there was a guy replacing the transistor that burns out them for just a few bucks. You may be able to find his write-up and try it yourself.
