wr seat covers the right aqua blue
« on: October 06, 2017, 10:42:58 PM »
It seems hard to find the right blue seat covers on the net for a WR 500. Where can I get the correct colour aqua blue?

Thanks Rob

I think I saw that Muzz can organise seat covers, and tank covers also.

 Ok after a lengthy discussion on the ph and photos sent they are sending me a couple of the closest
  Samples they have to original as to let them know which is best match


 They use to have a great match but unfortunately it’s no longer available and was replaced
 With the “aqua “ colour which is ok but not quite right
So hopefully we can get a better match with the stock available today

I have no bike yet lol

If I build it ....... it will come my way.


Love the colour of the light blue with the graphic you have behind it.

Where can I get a full set of 92 model graphics that colour to go with the Middle seat colour light blue.

Looks very similar in colour to the blue in the sunlight shots of the restoration project

What do you think? The light blue is closest........

What about the Technosel ones?

Are they good?

I am such an old fart Noob. LOL

Hi Muzz

I’m not sure what the right type of vinyl is for bike seats, but I did a quick search and found this:

http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Thick-leather-blue-PU-leather-Faux-Leather-Fabric-imitation-leather-car-interior-leather-sofa-leather-Sold/1901050_32664895021.html

I realise it’s from China, and the quality isn’t known, but if a roll of the right stuff was sent to them, would they be happy to make seats from that?

Cheers
Jamie

Could be worth a look Jamie, not sure about the quality tho , the ones we get are from marine vinyl

Here’s a pic of the samples on a genuine 500 seat cover




I think the best match is the one they
Are using which is the aqua one
What you guys think

Hi Muzz

I think you’re right. It’s probably the one I’d pick of the three.

Cheers

  So what’s the consensus? Lock in the aqua as the closest match with what’s available...
