    Seat Recover Tip (Seat Strap)

    In process of recovering my seats on an 2000 Kawasaki 1100 STX and did not like that the only thing holding the seat strap rivits was the plastic housing. I got some stainless steel washers and epoxied them to the inside of the plastic. Much stronger for the rivets to hold to than the plastic.

    Did you find a replacement strap? If so, where?

    How do you remove the knee pad for the seat recovering? I need to recover my seat with the knee pad, and I cant access the center screw in the knee pad.

    I am having a custom seat cover made for my 2000 Seadoo GTX RFI, any suggestions on what to do with the knee pads on each side, they look like the pads were colored with a colorant of the same color as the seat cover, they aren't covered with a vinyl fabric, I was thinking of using a vinyl spray colorant. I also have pictures of a seat they have dome recently and the design I chose.
