hello, If you look down about 3 threads "topics" below your posting you will see a thread named 2004 burgman seat tore. If you read through that thread it talks about recovering a burgman seat and also you can contact the member who started that thread his name is (Badgator), he is getting ready to remove and replace his old cover so im sure he would be willing to take some measurements of the old cover once he has it removed, that's the only way to get the proper measurements, its too hard to get an accurate measurement with the cover installed..

2 yards of fabric/leather needed for the seat but to have it made without the seat on hand would be absurd IMHO.
Too many contours and seams to match up without a good pattern or the seat available.
I just finished recovering a Harley and BMW motorcycle seat this weekend and would never trust anyone to blindly make a seat-cover based on a simple measurement. :wink:
But if you just need shipping measurements it is 42"x22"x20" (LxWxH) with the buttrest removed. :thumbup:

yeah he is right.. nearly impossible to make a complete cover without the seat on hand..I was assuming what he meant was he needed a measurement of the seat to get a rough cut out of the material needed to be able to get it sent home where he could glue and staple the new material on his seat and then trim the access material off the inside around the staples..

You would be better served to get around 2 yards of the material back home and have someone make the seat who can see both the old cover and the seat. A local upholstery shop should be able to sew it for you. Or you could get a spare seat and sent it to India. Either way, if you are going to go all out, don't leave anything to chance. if it does not fit perfect when you get home you will have wasted time and money.
