    My 2011 R3T has rips on the drivers seat. I don't want to spend a ton and the back seat and both back rests are fine. Its $650 to cover everything to match. An upholster told me to buy a skin just for the front seat and he can install it for $100. Where do you find a skin? Is the R3R front seat the same as the R3T?

    Keep watching the classifieds here on the forum, you may find a replacement saddle at a great price. On another note, I wouldn’t try to find a cheap skin to cover but rather save a few bucks and send it off to a place like Russle day long. It may cost a little but in the long run you’ll have a saddle that is very comfortable. you can even check the Corbin web site... $650 is a little steap just to recover.
    Just my 2 cents...

    I would try a car upholstery shop, remove what you have and replace with black leather, much more comfy than vynal.

    $650 is outrageous, my car upholstery guy recovered my side car seat, basically a chair, for $150
