So my '07 Yamaha YZF-R6S is needing some TLC on the seats, mainly the back one as it has a hole and the foam is exposed. I called a place and they quoted me $450. That sounds high as heck. Any suggestions/recommendations?

ETA: A brand new rear seat costs $116. The front seat is $120. Hell, I just may go that route...

I have no idea about anyone in that area, but based on the quote, I'd go to the fabric store and spend probably less than $20 in materials and give it a shot myself. If I didn't like the results, I'd buy the new ones. There's probably some great tutorials online.

That's what I was thinking. I have all the tools needed, just need the materials.

Well, I found a guy who does awesome work. $80 for both seats; any color/style as well. He said I could ride my motorcycle over there and he'd be done in 30 minutes. He sent me some pics of his work and he's pretty dang good. Sure beats $450.

That's a lot closer to what I would expect for that type of work.
