    My new Gpr seat

    This is a modified stock seat off of a 2007 Yamaha gp1300r. I sent the factory seat to jettrim, where they altered it's original foam contour and covered it with a custom cover. The cover is black soft suede in the front, white snake skin in the rear, the spike that says bitchin stichin is black carbon fiber, and all of the sticking is red. With some of the foam altered and removed, it has a much better transition between the front and the rear of the seat, and feels lighter as well. I always send my seats to jettrim. I feel it comes out much better when the artist has there canvas.

    Yes. They have to remove the stock cover to cut away at the foam and add some contour pieces. Then they cover it with there own, what looks to be, a clear marine grade vinyl that is adhesive backed, so water cannot penetrate.

    I had them modify several seats in the past with no tear or water issues.

    i just ordered a seat cover for my vxr from jet trim, and was told to glue the plastic to the foam.
    it didnt understand why. because of the stitching im assuming, thats why i questioned you.
    do you know what mil. plastic they used?

    No. Looks pretty thick though. I only saw it in pictures, as i do not uncover the seat when it is finished. It cost around and extra $50 for them to modify the seat and install the cover. Well worth the extra money.
