Seat / cover options - '12 Wee

The OEM seat cover of my bike ('12 Wee) has begun to split, at a couple places. 45K+ miles on the bike and seat, and the bike sits outdoors when I'm at work, so service is OK.

I'll need to do something about it, though, fairly soon, as the split has just opened and is getting larger.

I've been generally satisfied with the OEM seat. I also continue my search for a newer Strom - either a Wee or a Vee, so I'm not interesting in spending a lot of money for a seat for a bike I might not own next spring.

What reasonable options are open to me?

Thanks.


2007 Wee. Blue. Bought at 5K miles. Sold at 32K+ miles. Gone but not forgotten.

2012 Wee2 Adventure. Black. Bought at 26K miles. Now 45K+. Love it!

Seat Concepts. It's not exactly cheap, but it's not expensive either. And who knows, you might keep the bike because you like the seat so much.

Here is a Gen 1 seat for sale. If nothing else you may be able to use the cover for your seat.

Cheapest option is to have a local upholstering shop recover your seat.
