Sit & Fly Motorcycle Seat Cover

Is it just me or is it a bit of a production getting it on the seat and getting the seat on the bike, are you guys stapling it on or doing any cutting?

I was interested in these covers but after trying three times to contact them about buying one, my inquiries remain unanswered. Must be nice to be so busy that you can't be bothered answering such requests.

No, it is a tube, so I just slipped it on, worked a bit to adjust it, and then discovered I had it on backwards. So I reversed it. Still had to fiddle with it to get it looking right, but it has been fine ever since. No issues taking off/putting on the seat. I like it.

Just put it on, secured the velcro straps, and rolled on. Felt cool air on my balls from the first time I used it.

I ordered mine off eBay. Easy. And for $20, if it sucked, I wasn't out a lot of dough.

Tried that too, but wasn't available for the DL1000A at the time I looked, so I tried to contact them directly on their FB page.

I did too they don't respond on their FB page, the 650 and 1000 should be the same size.
