Yup, he does an excellent job. I went with vinyl as I use mine for touring etc and I really didn't want to be dealing with soggy suede on long trips. I put in back to back 1000+ km days on this no problem.

Pics:















At the time the pics were taken the seat was not cleaned, except for dust (in the pics) seat is in excellent condition.
It is a little lower than stock and may be specially interesting to shorter riders, I'm 191 cm and it suites me fine. It is a bit wider in the riders position as well as in the pillion's position. It is harder than stock what I, personally, like, specially for longer trips. My wife was delighted because of the wider pillion spot. Suede means the pillion is not sliding onto riders back what makes life easier. Suede is comfortable, and the shape of the seat allows the rider to grip it with his knees better than stock when riding in stand up position. Looks bling....

The postage - values are cca, as per Croatian Postal Service website (informative only):

To USA, economy (means slow) = cca 80$
To AUS, economy (also means slow ) = cca 100$ (US dollars!!)

For ex.; To Romania = 52$

1 US $ = 5,77 Kuna (Croatian money) as per exchange rates of the bank I'm a customer of (see left side column):

http://www.pbz.hr/eng

The price for the seat would be 200$ (US $), no matter AUS, USA or Europe.
Payment via Western Union money transfer or similar service (Croatia is non EU so PayPal doesn't work, sorry...)

Cheers and sorry again to all the others! I'll nuke the post in a few days!

M.
You've had a sweet ride, mate!

If I didn't had the seat re-built by Kahedo few months ago - I'd definitely go on your's one :)
and btw I'm looking on EXC530 right now, but not going to leave my 640 beauty :) just add one more orange beast in my garage :)

+1 to this and add this:

This is in my toolkit, and clamps tighter than sh**. Better than the bendy stock tools, but the motion pro tire tools are great as they are two in one. I have this wrench and two skinny little regular Motion pro levers.

Knipex. You can get them online, or your friendly Snap On truck.

They are used heavily in aviation maintenance. They use them for large air, hydraulic and fuel couplings. They are a cam design, so they hold very tight, and I have never even felt then come close to losing grip or rounding corners. Do not think of these as or similar in any way to channel locks, other than range of adjustability. They came highly recommended by the engineers where I work. I bet there isn't a day that goes by that they don't use them.

Can you order from Amazon up there? They have a pretty good price on them.

Drooling over the whole Knipex catalog yesteday, I've actually always thought I should get some knipex alligator pliers, these plier wrenches weren't on my radar.
