    Cover: waterproof a Yamaha cover

    I have an older Yamaha factory cover. For a GP1200R. It is no longer waterproof. I cleaned it in bleach. I thougt it would destory it but it came out clean and no tears.

    Does anyone know of a good way to waterproof it?

    I use this every year on my convertible car top and the jetski cover...The 303 High Tech Fabric Guard is a powerful protectant that will keep your convertible top looking great on the road!

    How versatile is this for you: Now you can protect your tennis sneakers, your leather bomber jacket, your pool furniture, and your convertible top with the same protectant! 303 products, the makers of the ever-popular 303 Aerospace Protectant, have created a product for all “outdoor” fabrics. The beauty is that you can bring the outdoors inside, treating fine leathers and suedes, and even silk with this solution.

    There are many types of breathable fabrics available. The big difference in price between the cheap covers (and tarps) and the good covers is due to the breathable fabrics. Never ever cover a bike with a non-breathable cover. Condensation build-up under the cover can do lots of damage.

    I have the max cover from empire its a 3 layer cover made from Tyvek developed by DuPont.
