Seat cover replacement
« on: Aug 04, 2020, 03:22 PM »
Has anyone tried the replacement seat covers from ebay, typically they seem to come from Italy and are around 100 to 140. Wondered if they were any good and easy to fit.

For a little bit more I would send your seat to CMSeats for a full reshape and Gelastic insert for +200

This is what i had them do to mine in 2009  :031:




OEM seat profile

They moved the riders seat position back by 1" and sorted the deaded sliding forward slope of the OEM seat  :020:
Has served me well over the past 11 years and 39,000 miles  :031:
They usually take about 7 to 10 days to turn it round, door to door  :028:
