Type "how to reupholster a motorcycle seat" into google - lots of youtube and text hits. But as said, it is also fairly easy. Just keep looking at the fit of the cover, then turn over and staple, turn over and look, etc. Takes maybe an hour. If it ain't looking right, just some new staples and do-over.

I usually pull the cover onto the nose of the seat, then put a couple staples into the back end to keep things centered. Also usually have to pull those staples about halfway thru because the end-to-end stretch has changed - but centering is well established by then.
