Seats

Tried the search function with no avail. Has anyone had any experience with Volcano Seats?

They offer a number of seats on Fleabay and have a page of FB which I can't link to.. I'm normally a bit wary but some look nice. Would be interested to know quality / comfort.

Cheers

It's actually a lot easier than you think. You're basically pulling the cover over the seat and stapling the edges to the plastic underside. You might have to trim the excess material with a blade. If you really have a tough time, give it to your grandma or niece.

Thanks.. I thought you had to remove the existing cover. I might give it a go. They look good.

To be fair here, you should take off the existing cover. The new cover will also have to be glued down in the center or it will simply tent across the curve of the seat.

I thought somebody tried one of these and the original B3 seat cover is glued to the seat foam and it ripped it all apart trying to remove it?

Brutale 800 Italia

There are kits that go over the original seat material, but most require removal. I've done both. From the looks of the Brutale's seat curvature, it does indeed look like spray adhesive (I use 3M brand) will be necessary. Also very easy, and I've always been able to peel back the seat cover when returning to stock, although I wouldn't try gluing over the original seat. Only onto the foam padding.

The Brutale seat cover is placed in a form and the foam is injected in to create the seat. It is near impossible to remove the cover without destroying the foam. They do not use spray adhesive.
