Received my clearance $49 Black Talon seat via FedEx on Friday afternoon and unpacked it last night and started looking at how it will fit on my Gen1 2032R.
I removed the Deere seat and took the seat switch and existing bracket off the bottom. The Talon comes with a set of slide rails and a mounting frame, all of which I removed. It looks like if I use some of the spacers from the BT seat and one of the mounting rails on the front of the BT seat I can attach the JD mounting rail-I just need some longer hardware as neither the JD or the BT are quite long enough.
I did a quick dry fit of the seat on the operator station and the seat back adjustment lever interferes with the seatbelt reel, I think switching it and the buckle should remedy that. Iím sure more issues will become apparent as I get deeper, one I havenít looked into yet is the seat switch mounting into the BT seat, it has a cavity for it but itís not a direct swap so thatís on my list unless someone else has solved that or done a swap on another seat that can shed advice? Iíd also consider jumpering it as I donít mow with the R, so if anyone has instructions for that please post.
Pics to come as I get my hardware and mounting progresses!
