Can someone point me in the direction for a FULLY custom seat cover for the 2014 YZ450?

 

All my standard go-to's either A: dont have the color scheme I want B: even carry seat covers for the '14 yet.

I've tried GUTS racing, SDG, TractionMX and came up short...

Get ballista grip their seats are best I've owned they don't rip easy either. When you sit down they grab like your sitting on glue its pretty impressive. I bought one thinking I'd get a little more grip but it gave a lot more than expected and they are in good with Yamaha so I'm sure they'll make it fit.

My Motoseat is great Travis does really good work. I sent my seat for him to install the cover, which I was told 1 week max, it turned out to be over 3 weeks. I would do it all over again but, just don't be in a rush. If you install the cover order now and wait.

  This is my custom seat cover from Throttle Jocky. I have a 2014.  I even got them to silckreen some Hannah bolts with my name on it.  It is super grippy

+1 for motoseat.  Check out HT Moto too, I have had them make a dozen seat covers over the years and they do awesome work.  Custom colors, stitching, etc.  If you send him your seat it comes back like a custom upholster wrapped the seat; every seam and corner are vacuum tight.

Monk,  what kind of cover do you have?  With ribs, or with out?

With ribs....

I never knew how much I slid around on a seat. Getting used to the new one is taking some time but overall I'm hugely impressed. Add to that the wait time from ordering and arrival was rapid fast which isn't very common to get in Canada. My only suggestions would be double stitching as a $20 extra option or whatever deemed feasible and slightly better (and I say very slightly) quality control. A few have mentioned getting crooked ribs including myself but have also said in the same sentence that Motoseat has taken care of them.

$69 or whatever for the seat cover is a bargin so the additional $20 wouldn't make me think twice for double stitching....

I have to say the ones you guys did up for Geoff at GP Moto here in Kamloops are pretty wild. The yellow, orange, blue theme is definitely bright. Agan, he said the delivery time was outstanding but mentioned the single stitching. His team riders are stupid rough on their equipment!

Monk, if you want less grip try a cover without ribs. Also, so you know and everyone else all of our seats are sewn with double stitching. All seems are sewn this way from the side pieces to the front piece everything has a double stitching.

Please explain and show us the double stitching? I don't sew so I have little knowledge on the subject. All I see on my seat is a single stitch line holding the 3 pieces together and two stitches holding the ribs.. I have been unfair to pass judgment without knowing so please enlighten me so I don't repeat bad info...

Here is a pic of the side of my seat...

Monk, what you are seeing is the top stitch, there is another sewn stitch underneath that. If you were take you cover off and look underneath you will see the second stitch. I will get you a photo on Monday.
