Wow, those black and red seats look sooooo good, imagine that there are probably guys out there with all black seats that would fall all over themselves at the chance to trade for their all black...

Are there any solid black GSA seats out there?
My red seat was modified in order to allow for front seat mount lift above the high setting (super tall here), had to remove the front seat taps without any usability/function restrictions...

Pond scum.

How does it hold up over time, leg rubbing against it etc? Anyone tried it before?

Hi: In my case after looks just like before, having said that I only put 4k miles on the bike in the summer.
I've washed the seat a couple times and nothing came off, the paint bonded very well with the original vinyl.

Got any more info on your cylinder guards?
