I picked up a set of seat covers from Custom Seat Creations for real cheap. I put them on today, but I'm still not sure about them. Be honest, what do you think? Rear cover with or without the strap?

how hard was it to make them work for the 300 seats?
Not hard at all. There was enough material to cover where the seats are shaped differently. You just have to line it up right.

I think they look pretty good. Cheap too. Think I might get some myself. Would look great on ebony. Will also go nicely with my lime green rim tape I've ordered.

Need to see the whole bike to really get an idea. I had thought about a seat in black with green stitching but every time I put green on it the bike looks cheesy to me.

I think it looks good, but maybe better on the SE (Black & Green) model. I don't know if you have any other green anywhere else on the bike, but if you do that would tie it all together. Perhaps green rim tape? :confused:

As you wish.

Eventually there will be more green on it whether it's a paint job or if someone with an ABS model wants to trade bodywork and tanks to have a White ABS model.

I was looking at them myself about a week ago thinkig of doing the same thing.. I was thinking of getting a black/silver or black/white if either of those colors was available..

Not a fan of the green on white but overall good idea :)

I used a hand stapler, but it was shitty. I might get an air stapler. I also used a re-positionable spray adhesive. It was a lot easier than I thought. An air stapler would make it even easier. They even came with installation instructions.

It's like glue, but you can peel the cover up and re-position the cover until you get it right. I have the green version of that Luimoto seat on my race bike.

do you think the Luimoto would fit the 300? will the sewn lines on it be in the wrong place and not let it lign up correclty??

If you think the Luimoto will work I may order it next week :)

I do have a air stapler myself so it will make it really easy.. Just a FYI for anyone air staplers are $10 to $20 at Harbor Freight..

I don't think the Luimoto one will work due to the way it's made. They are also too expensive to just try it and ruin a nice seat cover. I think Luimoto is based out of Vancouver, BC. Why don't you take a ride up there and see what they can do?
