    Is there a way to adjust the seat safety so it's not so sensitive?

    I can tell the delay is working, but it's still cutting out on me. When coming to a stop, or slowing down the seat tilts forward just enough to make it seam like I fell off the seat.

    Would raising the bolt under the seat solve this?

    Phishhook,

    Thanks for the post. If you weight more than about 120-130 lbs. and it's giving you problems then there is something wrong. The seat switch should be positioned so that the actuator plate leaves about 1/8" gap between the plate and the switch body. Basically the switch plunger should be 1/8" from full compression. I'd check that before I begin making any changes.

    Let me know what you find.

    Thanks

    Terry

    120# with my Carhearts on.

    I've been running with my foot on the deck lift to keep the seat pushed down. It's kind of agrevating when I reach down to set the parking brake, to hear the engin cut out.

    Phishook,

    There are only a couple of options. One would be start eating more fast food and laying on the couch watching more T.V. That oughta add a few pounds. Hey, it's worked for me. I can make the seat switch beg for mercy. This brings on some risks but everything does.

    For the others you'll need to call me at 800-667-5296.

    Thanks

    I've tried the eating thing, but either I have a verry high metabolism rate or a very healthy tape worm.

    I'll call.

    Phishook,

    Try putting a few hands full of sand in each pocket.

    Give me a call there are some things you can do but we need to discuss it in some detail.

    Thanks

    Terry,

    Santa was lisening.

    I got a soft ice cream maker, smore maker, pizza cooker, quesadilla maker, and a food vac. With any luck I'll be up to 130 by spring.

    ps I tried the adjustments. Didn't help much. It was still cutting out when I slowed going down hill. But that was a month ago, I wont have it out untill April now.
