Default Pillion seat cover

I was just quoted $315 for the OEM rear plastic seat replacement. That seems a little steep for what it is - but it did include the painting and lock set. Is there another option out there that anyone knows of?

Thanks!

Are you talking about a new cover to replace the existing rear seat? Or are you talking about the rear seat cowl (goes in place of the stock rear seat)?

If it's the latter, that's actually a darn good price (relative to MSRP). I would agree it is still steep though. I think A&S Cycles has them for $346 and then you have to buy the hardware kit and a lock kit (if you don't want to swap yours over from your stock rear seat).

Luimoto Seat Cover Set - BMW S1000RR Team Black/White (eBay item 300527776899 end time 03-Mar-11 06:25:31 AEDST) : Cars, Bikes, Boats

............I think its looks super cool easy install with any staple gun and you can still carry a pillion plus its cheaper and does both seats, the rider seat pad has a different material too like suade super no slippy!!!! Colin.

Yup. Talking about a rear seat cowl.

I took off the rear pegs and replaced them with tie down hooks, so I thought I would pull the seat as well and replace it. Plu I manage to hook a boot or leg on the forward right corner of the thing every time I get off the bike and I'm afraid it is going to start to look ratty soon.

Considering my bike is Thunder Grey, a piece of carbon fiber might look sharp. But then I have no business complaining about the OEM price now do I?

Thanks!

I just bit this bullet...paid that plus about $48 to A&S for the hardware kit to get the red pillion seat cover on my bike. Really....it's the only way to go that made sense for me. One more mod to choke down and try to pay for after Xmas is over.

I got a BM cover when I bought my 2012 and thought the fit was so bad I - especially considering the price - that I sent it back. The Louis cover looks a great idea.

My dealer included mine for $250 when I purchased the bike.

The rear seat cowl is definitely an area BMW could take a note from Suzuki. They include a seat and cowl with their bikes.
