my 2013 brutale 1090r with the rr seat (2piece) has started to deteriorate (cracking and shedding the soft stuff) - the alcantara part, the vinyl is still ok. i gather this is common, because i bought another seat from an earlier model and it has the same problem despite never having been fitted to the bike (cant use this because it has different fitting system)
what alternatives have people used? or should i just get a custom cover?
thanks

I purchased some new alcantara fabric from a supplier selling the same brand the factory uses and had a local upholstery shop that does bike seats replace the worn out original.
It looks brand new and beautiful again. Labor was $50, fabric was a bit more, but I have enough to do it again if needed.

I bought a half yard from this company. They have all colors. The Goya is the exact match for the red MV Corse accessory seat I had on my 910R. You want the "unbacked" fabric:
