Seat cover

Hi all !

Anyone point me in the direction of a supplier of replacement seat covers? Ive looked at all the online places i can think of, Dave Lamberth seems to make replacement ones for all xt 600 models except mine, , BTW mines a 2003 xt600e in black. The original seat cover is in one piece with no rips or tears, but has lost some of the "greyish matt finish?" on the top and now gets very tacky when the suns out! Has anybody else had this problem? Thanks and great forum !

I could do with the same.
I also need one for my 4PT seat.

I've found a portuguese website but they also don't say which models the seatcover fits, they only mention XT600...

Hey Bill!

Did you ask for the same two tone seat cover or in just one tone?

In my case, I'm looking for a black and blue cover...
If he says anything, don't forget to post it here L:P

I've tried contacting him through his ebay seller ID but never received an answer... :\

Bill, any updates?


Mezo, have ya ever tried fitting one of those on to a 4PT seat? lol
I tried searching for that seller you posted but I can't register on that website (no international addresses lol)

Could you contact that guy for us?
maybe get some price quotes for the seat covers for the 4PT?

Bill is looking for an all black (please correct if I'm wrong)
Me looking for the black on top and blue on the sides or all blue or all black..
Blue as the original 2002-2003 color

Facts...

Blackbird bought Tecnosel!


Also, I've emailed them asking for this color scheme (from the TT 600 R 97>05) but for the XT600E 96>03 (4PT)




mx graphics - Yamaha - TT 600 R 97>05 - TRADITIONAL SEAT COVER

Price for most of their seat covers 43.20€
Would look sweet!

Shipping is 20€ on most of their seat covers to Portugal...

I'd be happy with this seat cover!

Ahh, yes i forgot he only sells on Trademe (New Zealand site) i had to get a mate in NZ to buy it for me & post it to Australia.

Bit more detective work required.

I had a seat made for me form Renazco Racing for my DR650, real nice if you have a spare US$400+ shipping and there's a waiting list.
