I purchased one of these from Moto-K (in Greece). Good quality product, and took about an hour to fit (which is a PITA). Refit tonight, maybe a photo even.

Old cover off. I would imagine damned nearly impossible to go over as the overlap is way different. Actually sprained my wrist doing the work - hats off to upholsterers, you have my vote of approval. You will need a stapler with 6mm deep staples - local hardware store should have one if you don't already.

Dark here now so a photo tomorrow...

I bought one and gave it to my local upholster to fit and he said it was a right bitch to do. Looked good when it was done though.
He put it in the tumble dryer to loosen it up a bit before fitting.

Must be a big tumble dryer; even with the bars & forks off my GRiSO wouldn't go in ours Wink

Some pictures of my new seat cover - not sure it works with the seat cowl...

Without the cowl...

The detail of the finish and stitching (and a free plug for them with the logo)

With the cowl - Me not sure on that...

Seat still has a bubble under it as the vinyl hasn't quite stretched into place yet - it will, but I like the idea of putting it into a tumble dryer first. I guess that's why they are craftsmen.

That looks sharp. I have one on my GRiSO. Luckily, I have a good friend who owns an upholstery shop, traded him a bit of welding for the seat cover install.
