I shaved quite a bit off the seat, but nos much that I bottom out...Trimmed the sides and center....found out that some of those "as seen on TV or worth the 5 Bucks...l.ol... like the kinfe that can cut througha cana and still be sharp, Worked grewat for shaving the seat...also used a sewing pin, the one with the colored head to ensure the depth of the cuts were eve opn both sides..worked great! The seat fits like it was customed made for me...oh wait it was made for me! By me! I talked to a custom upholsterer was going to charge me 200+ for the work that took me about 2 hours to complete at home...used an easyshot manual stapler and 6 mm staples to staple it back on...worked like charm. Thanks all for the info on how to get this done!

Good Job there "F-12" ..... Great Thread! :thumbsup:


As to seats.... I've reworked a few over the years, some use staples and staple gun to attach the cover back, some use rivets and there I use aluminum washers and rivets.


I did my 1200s seat a couple times before I finally broke down and bought a Corbin .... LOVE IT!

Now, I'mcurious as to how the most recent redoo of my 1500's seat is going to be this year on some long rides planned. Corbin isn't cheap and I am.
