    Yes, they are great value for money and very good quality in my experience..Either Aliexpress or eBay, just have a look how long the shipping takes some come by airmail some things by boat. Make sure you are good at making things fit too as they aren't always going to fit up snug to the tank etc

    I have used a couple but like I say they don't always bolt on straight forward a little fiddling about is often necessary. I've sold them bikes now so no pics just go on eBay and pick one that suits your style and have a measure up so it's as near to fitting as pos....

    As Wisp stated, some aftermarket seats don't match the tank profile too well and the gap doesn't look good. To solve that issue, when I made my seat and then had it professionally upholstered I added a small flap to go some way to covering the gap/profile. It came out quite well I think?



    Maybe something you could add as well?

    just got it, pretty pleased with the fit, the quality is decent, at least the pan and foam seem pretty resistant, i could always recover later.... i cant do much more stripping down of the bike, live in switzerland, super rigorous MOT, inspection, etc.
