Thread: Source for seat foam and cover for R90S?

  1. #1

    Source for seat foam and cover for R90S?

    Buying a '75 R90S that previous owner had shaved the seat foam and put a generic cover on. Other than that it is all original. I want to restore the seat to original spec and leave the rest alone.
    I see replacement foam and cover on the Siebenrock website, are there other sources you've used?

    Are there instructions on how to replace them? I've replaced seat foam and cover on plastic seat pans, this one is not as straightforward.

    Thank you.

    Welcome to the forum! I might check in with some local independent upholstery shops near you. See if they have some suggestions. I know here in my town, there's an amazing place that basically sells nothing but foam. I didn't have a need to ask, but I bet they would have a wide range of foam and densities.

    Check with Sargent Seats. They used to do classic restorations.

    Flat Racer

    A while back I purchased a BMW style solo seat cover from Flat Racer in the UK. Here is a link that might help St.

    Thanks for the recommendations. I've owned a couple airheads...a '92 GS that had a Rick Mayer seat and an '82 RS with stock seat. The RS was the most comfortable stock seat I've experienced, no need to customize for me. Trailering the S home today, excited to own it.
    When I was in the Navy in the SF Bay area, I bought a '74 Ducati 750 Sport. A buddy bought a R90S and we would ride together, sometime swapping bikes. Will be nice to finally experience owning one.
