has anyone fixed a rip in the seat cover with success? If so what did you use and how did you do it.I just put in an L shaped rip in my new bike.I was thinking of taking off the cover and gluing a patch on the underside.Then restaple the cover back on.

sew it the glue wont hold my mom is an upolsterer we do street rod and custom motorcycle seats as well as restoration work so your only bet is to sew it with a patch.

Take it to a shop that does custom upholstery. You'll find a ton in your local phone book. They can do a repair that you will hardly notice.
If you try to fix it yourself it will look half assed.

If you don't have a lot of money the Goop trick works very good. You can also slide a piece of heavy fabric (like denim) under the hole to help back up the Goop. It lasted 2 seasons for me.

The best way to fix it is to just buy a new seat cover :)

if you really want to keep the seat a patch placed under with contact cement will be strong and I would also use contact cement and add a patch to the top.
