i bought mine off ebay. recovered my seat on the fourtrax 300. it turned out ok, although i used the wrong staples for the job. make sure you use at least 1/4 wide staples or you'll have the vinyl tear right through. all in all though good product and cheap (paid $25 for mine)

I paid the extra money for a saddleman seat cover for my bayou, and glad I did, came out great! The saddlemans have a 1/4" layer of foam on the underside that fill in any cracks or chunks missing in the old foam. Just pull all the old staples out of the seat and find some for your staple gun the same size, don't get them too long or you'll have them stuck in your you know what... Its really easy to do, just get it pulled over and staple down the corners, then pull the rest tight and staple as you go, if you mess up pull out the staple and reset.

In the past, I've recovered a few seats using the old IROC Camaro T-Top storage bags. It's a sort of stretchy type vinyl with a fleece lining and it's very easy to use. It stretches well and is easy to get all the wrinkles out. Looks like a brand new seat when done, but I guess those T-Top bags are probably getting hard to find now.
Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

I did the seat on my wifes 250ex and just went and got some material from the fabric store for boat seats I figured it should hold up.I also added an extra layer of foam to soften it up for her.There was a lot of stretching involved to get all the wrinkles out.I would staple and stretch remove staples and stretch some more.I cost about $14 and I have enough left to do another seat.
