Never heard of them, but there is a seatcover thread under VN750 general discussion you might want to check out. Jerry.

I've read...

I've read the following thread:
https://www.vn750.com/forum/results.p...t%3D13509#1458

It gave me more info than any other thread. The one on saddlemen.com that fits our bike is $65. If the one on eBay ($39) is equally as good, I could save some cash-o-la.

https://www.vn750.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13497 Check out this thread. I would rather spend a little more money, and have a nice seat, than to try and save a few bucks and run into problems, and have to spend the money anyway, plus what you already spent. When it comes to motorcycle parts, I like doing things right. You might also be able to find a nice seat for sale by someone who replaced theirs with an aftermarket seat. Jerry.

Why are you replacing your seat cover? If it's just for looks, go to the Joanne Fabric store, get yourself some black marine vinyl on sale, and just go after your seat with a staple gun and a hair dryer (helps it stretch some. I recovered mine in one piece. Just start stapling and tightening.

If you're thinking about comfort issues, a cover won't be any kind of significant upgrade by itself.

Jerry, thanks for the wisdom... from a guy who's ridden many years and had many bikes to a guy who's ridden for a year and owned one bike!

Skald, as is common with the stock seats, the threads are giving out PLUS a branch snagged a nasty hole a couple weeks ago during a Nor'easter... with all that said... I COULD grab that Marine fabric you speak of and use my old seat cover as a template! My wife has a mean sowing machine with a big needle. If that doesn't work I COULD just one piece it. Do you have a picture of ur one piece vinyl seat?
