    After getting a quote for $125 to recover my seat I decided to give it a go my self. $12 later and with enough marine grade vinyl left over to do the seat 2 more times I'm pretty happy with it. I'm sure the professional job would look better but not $113 better.

    That looks great! I did the same thing on an old XS650 I had a few years ago, the more I left it parked in the hot sun the better it conformed to the foam.
    Good job, if you don't tell anyone you did it yourself no one will be the wiser.
