Posted this in oldschool too as an 04 is "vintage" to some of you guys. Lol. Anyway, I'm seeking a seat cover for Shorty's 04 Team Motoworld Suzuki RM125. These were made by One Industries. I called One Ind but they pretty much told me to go shit in my hat. Motoworld Suzuki turned their shop upside down for me but had no luck finding anything. The cover is a black gripper material with a sandpaper texture white tip. Any help finding one of these would be amazing!

Does your grandma run a sewing machine ?

Buy black and white seats. Cut and make one. If you run out of options.

You can get it custom made, the badge is just sewn on, clip the stitches from behind and have the seat cover maker sew it back on. You should find it rather inexpensive if you find someone locally that can do it. As mention above, can get the material from another seat cover or even reuse the white part as I'm guessing you wore out the black part. Make sure you bring your old one for pattern reference and application. If you foam is just worn out, you can buy the seat foam and shape to original with mechanical turkey black or saws-all.

I know I can have one made but I don't want to, I want a original cover if at all posible. Not into replacing parts on race bikes unless its an actual team replacement part.

Awesome bike by the way, Shorty raced that bike when we raced in Colo Springs Wild Rat. Then I watched him win dominate Buddy Antunez at the Denver Arenacross when Buddy was #1 in Arenacross..

SDG could that. If you get them a decal of that logo they can sew it on.

That's one of my Motoworld RM 250's in the pic too :-) That bike was awesome and had everything still on it. I'll bet my buddy who bought crates and crates of left over Motoworld parts has one of those seat covers.

That is the response I've been looking for! What will it take from me to find out if your buddy has one?

P.S. I used your pic because it was the best pic I could find, thanks! Lol

I sent him a text this morning. He had everything from wheels, pipes, silencers, complete graphics kits etc etc. He had like 15-20K in leftover spare parts from the team.

Thank you sir! The bike is all there (except the A Kit forks) but the graphics and seat cover are pretty trashed. A seat cover and graphic set would be amazing! Always been jealous of your former race bikes!

Thx :-) He said all he has left are the all black One Industries seat covers.

Any chance of me acquiring one of those? At least then I could have the white tip sewn onto the proper black gripper material.

I have a box of 2003/2004 graphics from when they helped me out and I'm pretty sure I have that seat cover. I took this pic for a friend with a Rm 125 that wanted graphics and I think that's the right cover in the top left. I can check when I get home today?

Whoa! Killer! Those appear to be 03 graphics but the cover on the left looks to be the 04 cover with the whit tip! You may just be my new best friend.... If you wouldn't mind checking your stash that would be amazing. THANK YOU

Yeah for sure, glad to help. I'll post what I find.

Hey sgthubbard - Pretty sure you might be able to get that exact cover if you reached out to "D'cor Visuals"… just a funny suspicion they can do that.

This is what's left of the original graphics

If John, uh, Murray933 can't help you, reach out to Paul937 (he posts here sometimes). He was the Motoworld team owner.

Get lots of pics and call Guts and see if you get them to make it (I know they can).

Nobody ever told me, I found out for myself. You've got to believe in foolish miracles. It's not how you play the game, it's if you win or lose. You can choose. Don't confuse. Win or lose. It's up to you!

Your in luck! I actually have 2 covers from 04'. Doesn't fit my 450 very well though.

I have one of Albee's factory seat covers (from 99, all black) and has a big Suzuki printed on the sides. Will sell.

Looks like I have a few full sets of 03' and one set from 05' for a 2 stroke and one for the first year 450. One guy is requesting a set and I think I'll keep one set for when I find a 250 in decent shape to build. 04' was my favorite as far as looks.

Murray, I'd be interested in the '05 2 stroke set if you have a matching seatcover. 281-750-1705
