PostSubject: Seat covers   Sat Jan 23, 2016 12:38 am

Hello friends;
If you need to change your seat cover or need a gel or heated seat, I found a small company in Greece.They are doing their job perfectly. I changed my seat cover. To me it is better than original one. It cost me Euro 29 including shipment from Greece to Turkey. Take a look at their website when you have time (They have 2 types of seat cover for Moto Guzzi. Breva 1100 and GRiSO 850. GRiSO 850 seat cover fits to all GRiSO 1100, 1200, SE) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Just fitted the new seat cover from MotO.K as recommended by Okuraner (many thanks for the putting this on the forum)

I am very pleased with the look as I wanted an SE looking seat as mine was plain black with no stitched panel.

It took my inexperienced hands about an hour and a half until it was all completed how i wanted it.

Its a sign of the quality and the care of design that this cover fitted with no trimming or nasty shocks.

This was the first time i have attempted this and aided by a couple of YouTube tutorials it went like a dream (for once)

Hi Supersubby, ordered one like this just prior to reading this. How did you manage to staple cover below seat at leading edge where it meets the tank- my staple gun will never fit in space available. BTW did you need to remove the original cover? Job looks great BTW, much better than original.

Regards,
Tigger.

PostSubject: Front of seat stapling    Tue Mar 22, 2016 11:26 pm

Hi Trigger

I removed the original cover and all the staples.
I then put a couple of staples at the front of the seat either side of the location lip?
I did the same on the rear to get everything lined up.
I then put some in the sides at the middle.
When all this was done it was possible to get some staples in around the lip.

I will post some pictures of the underside of the seat when I get home tonight.

Unfortunately when I picked up my Tenni (used) the seat had a small tear and puncture on the side panel:

I sent an email to Motok but didn't get a response. Don't know if they deal with us yanks but I would love to find a seat cover close to the Tenni brown/dark brown.  In the interim I'm going to try one of those mobile vinyl repair guys.

Hey Diiliw
I had exactly the same tear in almost the same place, I took the seat to this this fellow in Toronto (he used to work as an upholsterer for Rolls Roys (allegedly), he was able to stitch it and pull it enough under the rim of the seat that you can't see it, unless you go look under it. Charged me $25 while I waited right there. Name is Mehi: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], tel. (416)700-7178.
Not sure he's still in biz but maybe worth a phone call/email

Great find okuraner, mine's ordered and on the way. Prices seem to have gone up so get one now before they rise again.

Well I ended up taking a different route. The AF1 site lists the OEM SE saddle 883606 for $105. I sent them an email and asked them to verify the price and description and they say it is the brown SE seat. Meanwhile the seat for the Black Devil is $265. Always funny how MG parts work...

I'll let you know what shows up!

Got it today. Part number 883606 is the stock, brown SE saddle. It's $105 from AF1 and you can probably get a similar price from your local dealer.

It's cheaper to go brown!
