    Just found one on their site that I fancied ages back and its £55...
    I have a spare seat that I bought that I was going to send to Poland to have re-covered with a duck on it but I'm not sure I can get two seats re-covered passed the missus..:confused::p

    Very smart looking seat, Arnie! I like the contrast stitching and the texture of the darker gray part. How does it ride?

    great I retained the original triumph cover underneath which was not torn it gives that extra padding.

    That's good to know as I was going to add some foam rubber ( a roll mat cut to size and glue it on ) to give one of the seats in particular a much needed padding boost...which is better though I wonder??

    @Arnie williams Have you got an industrial upholstery staple gun or just something from your local DIY store..I've seen YouTube videos where people have really struggled with a staple gun to get the staples in deep enough and actually grip..

    I had exactly that problem putting a cover on an XT seat - my staple gun wasn't up to the job. I ended up using strips of 0.5mm plastic secured with small screws which worked well if not as fast as a decent staple gun.

    Dewalt heavy duty from screw fix £35 tried cheaper ones but binned them.I put contact adhesive as well it keeps cover in correct position you can put more pressure on staple gun.
