Good product at a reasonable price.
My Arrow electric stapler didn't work, too weak. I talked to the folks at Seat Concepts and they told me that an air stapler is what they use & recommend. I bought one from harbor Freight for about $20 (after a 20% off coupon). That's what they charge to mount the cover on your stock seat pan.

I'd rather do it myself & keep the tool.

Also, this is a HUGE improvement over the stock 2X4 type motocross seat from the factory. If you have to stand to save your backside, consider this upgrade-

I was watching the video intently to see what you were referring to.

I almost pooped my pants when that appeared! "hey hey!"

I used a regular heavy duty stapler on a couple of seat covers about 10 yrs ago, turned out fine. I tried one on the XR628 (cheap ebay seat cover) and it was crap, so I had that seat done by a shop in town.

The last couple of Husqvarna's have had the Seat Concepts treatment, I just sent it off to Lendon and had him do it. I get the good guy repeat customer discount and it's worth it.

Consider me schooled in the installation department, and I have the right stapler and a bazillion 1/4 staples.

And as you seem to get a new machine on a regular basis, feel free to LMK when your next cover will need to be installed.

I had Seat Concepts do a seat cover & foam for my XR; it looks great, and is VERY comfortable. I went with an Enduro Engineering seat for the KTM, it's OK, but nowhere near as comfortable as the Seat Concepts.......(am thinking about sending the factory KTM seat to SC to have them give it the treatment----

If forget which electric one I used but it was fine. I couldn't justify the expense of a good air operated unit but it would likely be a better choice.
I also used a 3M spray adhesive just before stapling to back up the staples. That may have been overkill but the can was just sitting there.
