When I got my TW it had a large rip in the side of the seat so I got the Coleman pad and it moves around and puts you up a half inch or more no big deal if you are tall, I am not so this is what it costs to do it yourself if you send it to them add $20. for install and $15 to $20 to ship the pan to them. I will take a few picture's when I do the install. Paul:homework:

eBay has several sellers with tw covers in the $35-50 range ,and factory yamaha is about $100.00 if I remember correctly .Some of the ebay ones are bad sellers ,but a few have very good reviews .

I have used them in the past for another motorcycle .. if you walk in with cash they will give a discount and no tax .. the day I was there they couldn't do installs but I am going to take my TW seat to them soon
... also keep in mind when you saying they charge more then you do, that they also include new foam .. and they have different foams to make it softer or more firm ..

with new foam that is a pretty good deal, the materials they are using are good I use the same so some experience with it. I have installed those cheap ebay covers and they are crap, just remember the old saying you get what you pay for...most of the time anyway.

The big thing is the new foam and the wider rear seat so on long rides you can move back and forth and stand and keep you butt felling good! and the stock seat on my XT-250 DR-650 and TW- 200 just do not do it.

I have been super tempted on these for a while. I really wish I could get them to do it in a tall version though.

Just got mine in and installed myself. I used a regular heavy duty stapler with 1/4 narrow crown staples and it worked very well. It would be much easier with a pneumatic stapler as you don't have to put so much pressure down on the head of the gun (had a few slip offs and had to redo a few staples). Otherwise, a great upgrade for our bikes.

Thanks I removed the old cover staples and they are less then 1/4 and have a dull tip. The 1/4 staples I have are sharp tipped. wondering if it matters.

My bike had the original factory cover as I bought it brand new and my staples were the same as the ones I put in to do the Seat Concepts seat, only a they were a wider crown, so as a result I had to put a few more staples in.
