I just installed a black one last week and it is very nice. The gripper top is great and the fit is spot on. Just make sure you have a GOOD stapler to install it. My HD hand stapler would not go through the hard plastic of the seat base, ended up using a electric stapler and that barely did it. Ideally an air powered one would be the way to go.
Well I just ordered mine today. Call them, dont just order on Ebay they hook you up with a sweet price since you are from the club. I ordered a gripper seat and it was going to be $41 shipped then I added embroidering for another $15. The guy was great and said I should have it in 7 days.
I got mine in a few days ago...Red gripper top and black gripper sides. I had the 700xx logo on the sides. I got my old cover off pretty easy. I tried to use my stapler and like the other guys said it would not go thought the hard plastic. So I call a local upholstery shop got them to put it on for me. I should get it back tomorrow..I will post some pics when I get it back...
Sorry the pic is small..I tried to load it and it was too big..so I reduced the size a little and ...well..I guess it shrunk it really small..I got a guy in town to staple it on for me. I do not have a staple gun that is strong enough to go through the plastic. I like it and it seems to hold you in place. I just rode down the road and back...I guess I will have to try it out this weekend....
I got the guy to do it for 30 bucks..was going to be 40 bucks but his wife got sick and he kept my seat for 3 days. He said he would have it done by Noon on Thurs...I got it back on Saturday afternoon, well worth the wait and I guess the wait paid off...
They are the best seat covers ever made. I had one on my DVX. I broke my neck and it I was down so it sat out side for 5 months. I used a bad cleaner on it befor and it caused the cover to fade from a sick lime green to a fade blue ish color. I contacted them and the provided a replacement. I had the cover on there for over 9 months.
Other then that I have the covers on a Prairie, 200X, 700XX, KFX700, and a Rappy. Check oout my head light cover thread to see mine.
I got mine in the mail today. Almost done stapling it up. That part was a pain in the ass. I used an electric stapler an it needed to be stronger; it worked but barely. Use an air stapler if possible. Other then that it looks great. I'll have it finished tonight and put some pics up tomorrow
Pretty sure this thread needs moved to product reviews and its old but I will comment anyway. I definitely recommend this seat cover to anyone in the market for a new one. The custom embroidery is the best I've seen yet plus the extra padding is great. Well worth the money!
