Torn seat

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' at netrider.net.au started by oliver, Jun 30, 2008.

  1. I recently got myself an 07 VTR 250, it's in virtually pristine condition, bar one small tear (5mmx5mm) on the seat.
    Are there any easy fixes/products out there for fixing bike seats.


  2. vinyl/imitation leather from spotlight $17
    heavy duty stapler from mitre10 $10
    500 heavy duty staples $5
    do it yourself, its fairly easy and there are some good how-to's on google. one thing i can tell you is if you work next to a heater the vinyl is alot easier to stretch into position.

    or pay $100-150 to do it for you.

    or you can put some duct tape over it.
  3. took mine to Steve's upholsterers in Fyshwick... was $90 to re trim it iirc.
  4. Cut some black tape to size and stick it over.
