Seat "Skins" Relace/Recover - DL1000 - 1st gen
I am a new owner of a 2006 DL1000. Very quickly falling in love with this model and looking to make upgrades. I have noticed many seats of this vintage are showing cracks and separation of vinyl at stress points as mine. I am in the marine canvas business so am aware "seat skins" are available for economical replacement of OEM seat covers for boats. When searching for Vstrom seat skin/covers online and this Forum did not find any results. To be clear...I am describing removing the original black vinyl seat cover from the original seat base and foam and replacing it with a new OEM vinyl seat cover attaching with staples. This is a very easy, effective and efficient process to renew a seat. Has anyone found this to be available for Vstrom seats?
On my recent MC trip to the Robbinsville, NC area came across the 2019 Vstrom Rally at Stecoah spontaneously without reservations. Thanks to all that welcomed me and gave me advice. Hope to join you all next year with advanced planning.
