The first thing I'd check is the starter gear, it's plastic and they do wear out and break or bend teeth.

I have never owned a kohler so I can't say. Usually you have to remove some of the sheetmetal off the engine to get the plastic gear guard off. You will probably have to do this anyway though, regardless of that the problem is, you'll need to get in there and take a look.

check out 'donyboy73' on youtube, he will have a video on how to replace the starter gear, it is most definitely that...
