Step 1:Remove your stock seat. If you aren’t familiar with how to do this, refer to the guide on our Resource Center for more information.
- Flip the seat upside down. Use a pick or a flathead screwdriver to begin removing the staples that secured the seat cover to the plastic seat pan. Only lift one side of the staple, do not yet try to fully remove them.
Step 3:Lift one side of every staple securing seat cover to plastic seat pan.
- Use pliers to fully remove staples from plastic seat pan. Make sure to pull the staples straight out so that the staples do not damage the pan or break as they are removed.
Step 5:Pull seat cover off seat pan to expose seat foam.
- Use a knife or your hands to carefully pull seat foam off plastic seat pan. Make sure to pull foam off in such a way that it leaves little to no residual foam on the pan.
Step 7:Finish pulling foam off pan. Clean any residual foam left over from pan.
- Place plastic seat pan into Corsa Moto seat skin and foam.
Step 9:Make sure that the vertical seam in the back of the seat skin lines up with the metal seat pin on bottom of the plastic seat pan. Also make sure that the seat skin stitching lines up with the edge of the plastic seat pan so that it will look clean when finished.
- Pull edges of seat skin all the way around over the plastic seat pan. Make sure the seat skin lines up with the edges of the seat pan.
Step 11:Use a staple gun and staple the front, back, left, and right sides of the seat skin once to hold the seat skin in place before fully securing the seat skin to the seat pan. Flip the seat over to make sure that the seat skin is in the desired position before fully securing it to the seat pan.
- Use a staple gun to staple the seat skin all the way around the edge of the seat pan. Make sure the staples are applied closely together so that the seat skin does not come off or tear during use.Stop periodically to ensure the seat skin is taught and that the seams continue to line up in a consistent manner.
Installation Complete!Once you have stapled the edge of the seat skin to the bottom of the seat pan all the way around and have ensured that the seams line up, your installation is complete!
