I was looking on here and saw some guy mentioned that they was material you could order off online from Walmart to recover my Honda 300 seat but he couldn't remember the exact name of the material. Can anyone help me and tell me what type of material to use.

I go to Hancock Fabrics or Jo-Ann Linens and buy Marine Grade Vinyl , it is $19.99 per yard , takes 1/2 a yard to do a 300 seat , you can get a coupon on line from Jo-Ann's for any where from 40-60% off on your phone

so 1/2 a yard at $19.99 and then the 50% off coupon and you can get out of there for $5 , use 3/8 staples preferably stainless steel , a spring loaded gun will work but not that good about sinking them , I bought a cheepie Harbor freight air stapler for about $15 on sale , with the air regulator you can set it to flush them with out over doing it , 80psi is right for me , takes about an hour to strip the old cover and pull the staples and then recover it I have seat that I recovered in 2008 that are still in great shape and I keep the bikes uncovered in the weather ------make sure to get the marine grade as the other vinyls don't stretch enough to get it tight and wrinkle free

Thanks I ordered the marine grade vinyl and hopefully it should be in either tomorrow or the beginning of next week.
Also can somebody post a link or picture of the right rotella 15w-40 oil they use for 300's. I recently used the vavoline 10w-40 arc oil but I have heard people on Facebook groups continully talk about using the rotella brand. Also which is better, packing the front and rear doffs with grease or using oil? As well as the crank case and transfer case requirements?

TRX350 Foreman seat

Hya all,

I'm the proud owner of a dated 86 Foreman and am about to do the top end and other work. The seat is very tatty being from Scotland, find it difficult to get stock parts. Would anyone know the seat from any other TRX foreman or later Rancher would fit the 350 without modifications? Rancher seats and parts are available over here without too much pain..
Thx

Hey Dovi I don’t think any other will fit except 86-92 TRX350. To get top work might look up a custom upholsterer to replace the foam and seat cover.
We have one does motorcycle seats pretty much same same

300 seat I redid last night using a kentskover4u cover off of ebay. Under $20 shipped.

I think were it me I would find some sort of padding to use to fill in holes in the foam and slap a cover on it.
