    What material on Jettrim seat cover?

    What material do most go with on their Jettrim? Looks like I see quite a few people lately with the "carbon fiber". Is the suede really too abrasive? I rode a ski a couple years ago that had it, and I never had a problem. It was nice to stick to the seat when it was wet.

    Apparently this was a dumb question...should have asked "what first mod should i do to my GPR"...

    I would suggest doing the safety and reliability mods (D-Plate, Pump Tunnel Reinforcement) before you do any performance mods

    But since you asked...... The carbon fiber is the way to go!

    That Suede or no grip was absolutely miserable for me. Even with the wetsuit or board shorts on it was to abbrasive.

    Basically what I think Brad should have asked is "what material comes on the Riva covers"?

    Since you liked the feel of Craigs, correct Brad?

    Also mrbtd I'm the one that bought your seat off you. Nice seat just to bad my GPR never made it back out on the water this year to try it out

    Use osterich leather. Its not really abrasive, but it provides excellent grip. Make sure you get marine grade lether though, rated at like 800 hrs or so.

    I have a picture of mine Ill upload here in a bit

    I've got 3 pipes...which one does the D-Plate go in? LOL...ok, at least I got a few replies. Thanks. I was pretty much set on the "carbon fiber" material for the top section.

    I now wish I would have used it on the sides as well. (I purchased enough of it)
