Awesome Seat Covers

Postby smack67 » Wed Mar 30, 2016 5:34 pm



Hey,
I just got some seat covers for my 1500 on Ebay they are custom jobs but the workmanship is outstanding. I am in fact a little apprehensive about sticking them, has any one done it (replaced the covers) and how did it turn out.

What are they made of? I'd like to see how they look once they're installed.

I'd like to take a gander at that recover.
Was the price worth it?

I'll try to take some pics tomorrow, they turned out great even with an amateur putting them on. I've got to get my butt out of em long enough to take a picture.

Here they are I have the one for the drivers backrest as well...but it is riding season and i need to modify the underlying structure somewhat to accommodate the larger size of the cover. I think they look great and the material is high quality. I apologize for the messy garage but once again clean garage or ride...

Pardon the advertisement but the company I got them from is http://www.ebay.com/usr/firma_wijalis?_ ... 2749.l2754
out of Poland and I cannot recommend them enough, they messed up the order once and completely fixed it with no problem.

how hard was it to put on the cover? I have done the seat on my 1100, it wasn't too bad, but it wasn't easy, and I did an ok job, but I can tell I did it... LOL, ie. it's not perfect.

I suppose I could have brought it to an upholstery shop, but it wasn't too hard. Some of the guys who have bought covers from Wajalis have brought them to guys who would modify the foam for them but I like my stock seats. The only mod I made was to put some 1" foam under the drivers portion to give me more leg room. All you need is patience, a staple gun (air-powered from HF), a sunny day and beer. And it doesn't hurt to have a brother in law to heckle you. By the way he bought the same cover for his GL1500 after he saw how it turned out.

You made a really fine choice there smack67.
Did a nice job keeping it looking OEM.
I'd hate to see that LOGO rubbed off, it looks so good.

WELL THEN, that's great news.
I zoomed it to 500% and still couldn't see any stretch marks.

I had a light industrial machine in the 70's and always left a stretch mark or few. But then that machine wasn't very adjustable like today's are.
I think you got a good deal. 8-)
