Saddle

Hi - another few questions.

I've just removed the saddle and as you see it's splattered with masonery paint and quite faded.

Anyone suggest the best way to remove the paint? I think the cover is a vinyl of some sort, so I need to be wary of what I use. And again what to use to remove the rust from the saddle? Can I restore the colour to the faded parts? And lastly, where could I buy replacements for the rusty metal end pieces of the strap?

I'm asking quite a lot, I know, but I've searched the forums and wasted so much on Google - I'm pretty sure someone here could tell me!

Being on a budget a new seat isn't an option.

Thanks again

Stevie

whats the seat off? can you get a replacement cover...?

either that or a retrim.. try an upholsterers, the boat type are best as they work with waterproof fabrics.. i had one done with colours wasn't as expensive as first thought..

Agree upholstorers (sorry really cant spell that at this time of a morning.. student u see) lol... i got some extra padding put in mine and only cost me £20.


I know there are companies out there that do this kinda thing... friend had fancy seat done for his bandit, but was pricey.


Anything on Ebay?

OMG I'm sooo biting my tounge now..........


Not heard a seat called a saddle in a long time :mrgreen:


There are a number of options, even down to having a look on ebay or checking soem breakers for a nother seat....might be cheaper than recovering

Thanks for the advice and thanks for the link.

I can see now why I was wasting so much time on Google - they're seats not saddles! You have to laugh.....

StevieNi.


don't know why I didn't think of it earlier,


Wemoto are an online shop, i've dealt with them before and there ver good, they do seat covers for £22.02 for the NSR125 88-89, but also cover other models / years, so give them a try.. also be able to supply most of your serviceable parts, Cables filters etc..
