Are the seat covers for 600s the same as 650Ls?
Thanks

TD,

I installed a Ceet/Gripper on my XR650L and from the tag it looked like it was for a XR600 too...

Few notes:
- Be patient, I had a #$%@^#@$! of a time getting the cover to fit like OEM (small folds etc...). My hands got torn up trying to stretch the dang thing...

- Get a good staple gun, its narrow in parts and the staples don't always stick... Powered gun would have been nice...

End-run, I thought this would be a "simple" project; it turned into kinda a nightmare... I wish I had kept my OEM cover and figured something else out...

Just one-mans-opinion... Best of luck...

I did the CEET cover on my XR650L too. I agree, it's MUCH MUCH harder to do than they make it out to be. I have a big staple gun, went and got the 1/4" staples, and most of them just bounced off the plastic seat base. And I couldn't fit it into some of the places I needed to get staples. I ended up taking it to a place that does motorcycle seat reupholstery, and it took HIM an hour to do it using a heat gun and a big air-powered stapler. If I had it to do over again I'd have skipped buying the cover (although it looks great and I like the anti-slip gripper stuff) and just had the guy do it with his own materials. He charged me sixty bucks to install it.

Wow that's good to know
Maybe I will wait to change it. I was looking a some covers on e-bay thinking oh that would be cool a new seat cover. Now maybe I will wait till I actually need one.

A couple years back, I got my RD400's seat reupholstered at an automotive upholstery shop, the guy did an awesome job, he used really high quality materials that seemed like they would outlast the yamaha seat, and it cost me about a hundred bucks. I would definately reccomend the process to anyone who is considering a seat cover.

....that seems a little excessive to me. I recently bought my bro in law a new Ceet seat foam and cover for his quad and had it installed by local upholstery (sp) guy, becuase it looked like it would be a bear of a job. Twenty minutes after I dropped it off the guy calls and says its done The cost was $15 and the seat looks great.
