Hi all,
my seat has a (small) rip in it, and I was thinking of having it re-covered, but spotted reasonably priced used seats on Ebay in better condition than mine, for about the same money.

Question is: how different are 2nd Gen seats from earlier models, as the part numbers don't match.

77200-MCA-A700 against 77200-MCA-S41

They look the same, just a different finish to the vinyl.

my '02 has a 'new unused' 2010 seat on it, it is the same frame underneath.
Honda loves to change part numbers for no good reason.

for me, it is perfect.

I am pretty sure the seat shape changed a bit in 2012. The 2001 - 2010 earlier seats may fit the 2012 - 2017 but I wouldn't bank on it.

The seat color usually matches the rest of the trim and can be a single year color. So, unless it's for sure black, I'd try to have the rip repaired or make sure the used seat is from the same year.

The 01-10 seats will not fit the 2012+ & vice verse.
