Are you just after a cover or anything more?

If something more, I can highly recommend P&P Seats in Birmingham who re-moulded and re-covered my seat. The re-moulding is more comfortable than standard foam - they basically make their own and trim to fit different styles of seat. They offer different coverings to choose from. This also allows you to re-design the seat, especially, as in my case, I ride a lot two up and the standard seat was very uncomfortable.

If you are interested, you can see what I did here, which I have used for about 28,000 miles and still looks nearly new:
Phil and Dee's Travels: Africa Twin Seat Modification (inbetweendogs.blogspot.com)

If you are just after a standard cover hopefully someone else will advise here.

Thanks HAT - just after a cover really. Id love to get it fully reupholstered but dont really have the sheckles. Ive seen some online videos on how to add a gel pad so might try that but I dont do the miles I used to (previously commuted 80 miles a day, now just 14) so its not that important.

Fair enough! Not sure about gel pads, could have had them in my seat but didn't bother and haven't regretted it. I did hear that gel pads can make the seat hotter - although that would be a good thing in the UK!

Good luck finding a nice cover.

Thought about covering it yourself? I did mine its not to difficult. Hardest part is finding the material you like

I take my seats to be recovered to a local car seat upholsterer with all the tools and expertise. He just charges me £40.
