New Seat?
« on: September 25, 2017, 08:36:50 AM »
Hello!

I am the proud new owner of a Wolf and am looking to change the seat to a more cafe-racer style look. Does anyone know of any covers that would fit the Wolf? I'm not technical enough yet to make any mods, so I'm just looking for an easy cover that can be installed on my own.

Thanks!

Hey amholla3,

eBay has some great stuff if you are after the cafe racer look.

You will need your measurements. I just ordered the classic vintage seat so when it gets here I would be happy add the seat measurements to this thread. Hopefully you can get the measurements before than.

Welcome to the pack.

Would you post a pic when you can? If you can figure out how to post a pic? It's notoriously difficult for some of us.  :o

Seat measurements would be great! Thank you ;D Did you order from Cam? I might end up just going that route, but I'd love a brown leather. I found someone who does custom seats, but you need to send her a seat pan and I'm not sure I'd like to give mine up for a few weeks  ::)

Yes it is the one from Cam, I will post pictures of the seat and also the black rack that I ordered.

You could always get an extra seat pan this way.

Well here is my shot at measuring the inside of the seat.
I feel the the link I posted earlier on eBay is a pretty accurate example.
If you are looking for different measurement let me know and I will try my best to get them.
I will upload more pictures later. I might wait till spring to put this seat on as I don't really want it out in the weather all winter when I can just let the stock seat do that.

THE DISCLAIMER:I do not have professional measuring tools and therefore rely on my measurements at your own risk.

I have the classic seat from CAM and it is more 60s/70s style than cafe.  I also purchased a cafe seat from ebay and think that would be the way to go as it was less than $40.  I even pulled the staples (avoid removing all, leave the front untouched) and inserted a gel pad bc thos cafe seats are super firm.

Would you mind sharing a link to what seat you ended up getting?

Awesome! Thank you heedlyn for the measurements!

Hardazz, do you have a link? And how was the install? Did you just add a cover or a whole new seat pan?
