I dont like doing  upholstery work.. but cant afford for someone else to do it for me so here's my go at it... picked up the staple gun at harbor freight 1/4" long staples... ordered the cover off of ebay.. the guys said to get this material as it is more forgiving... it's like a tweed nylon  stuff... and not the fake leather stuff... here are the before... I did trim the old one so it wasn't rippling under the new one..but held the foam on the seat back..in pics is what was left of old one after I trimmed it...

Not to bad

Nice work @Spartacus Stroppel I started doing this a few years back and have had great success.  I order my own material from amazon now and make all kinds of seat covers.  They sell material by the yard for $8 and $10 bucks so I get at least two seat covers out of one piece of fabric. 
I do a lot of molding work for houses and use my compressor for my nail gun so I went and bought an air staple gun, it makes life a lot easier.

I had to do the seat on my old quad a few years back and found the material at a local craft store.

$34 is a great price and it’s a direct fit.   I added one to my rancher last year. The previous owner left a cigar on the seat and it burnt the cover.   My older project bikes I like to make myself.
