Mink oil does the same thing and ain't 20 bucks for a 4oz jar....
(and it won't stain your pants black)

Don't go riding through the woods. Those big bears will be sniffing your butt. Something else might be staining your pants :)

Did not know bears ate minks.

And should point out that Corbin seats are not all leather.
From their website:

"Take a look at the topside. Your new seat is hand tailored and most likely has genuine leather seating inserts. We use leather where it contacts your body for maximum comfort and vinyl on the sides to support the foam. Why? Vinyl doesn't stretch like leather does, so it provides good support to the foam shape. Also, side panels are susceptible to stress marks that vinyl resists. This gives maximum durability and the comfort of genuine leather."

So, using leather conditioner on vinyl is like buying lawn mower for AstroTurf. ;)

Seems more like you fcked it up.

Some leather , real leather, cleaning solutions contain solvents that will destroy plastics, like the vinyl of the stock seat.
I was referring to the seat material as being Plastic-leather (Pleather)

ok...back to my hole now.....:doh:

I modded (no sissy and a foam trimming) and recovered mine with genuine leather (jacket I found in the basement)....
The jacket was mildewy when I found it, so I cleaned it first with water and bleach, then went to the local topless bar where a friend dances, bought her a cuple three drinks and took her for a ride without her panties**.....*weg*....
And never...NEVER use ArmorAll or TireShine on seats, grips, brake pedals, etc...that includes cages too....you'll look like Peggy Flemming just before yer foot slips off the brake and you hit the back of that car....:wow:

**reminded me of the old joke...."why did god give women legs ?"............








...so they wouldnt leave snail tracks....*rofl*....sorry, ladies...
