New Seat for my XT225

Recommended Posts

I have a 93 XT225 that I am borrowing right now(my CR500 got stolen:foul:)

Here are some pics of the seat...



It needed some really bad help and I wanted to keep the foam from deteriorating, so I bought some vinyl from a craft store to recover it. They didn't have very many colors, so I ended up with the wrong color. It's almost a grey instead of yami blue. Stapling the thing back together was a :) !

The stuff I bought was too stiff and I couldn't stretch it well enough. Next time I will get a seat cover somewhere else and do that. Anyway, it has a few wrinkles, but it's all done. Hopefully it lasts for a while. Oh, and if anyone is trying to decide to do this to their bike or not...one tip...get a really good staple gun because the plastic is really hard to get staples in. Here it is all done. It didn't turn out so great just because I couldn't stretch the stuff...
