Reupholstered my 2005 Ninja 250 seat

Finally took the leap and decided to replace the crusty, cracking vinyl on the seat of my 2005 Ninja 250. Fabric shop was out of black so decided to take a chance with an almost color matched silver! Let me know what ya'll think. I've had the bike for only a few weeks, she obviously needs some love still! First time tackling upholstery, ALOT smoother than expected. (second set of hands helped tremendously) Few wrinkles I still need to pull out, just got impatient and wanted to see how she looked You're not gonna hurt my feelings, let me know what you think/ what you would do next

I think it looks nice. Recovering seats has always looked tricky to me, so it's cool you did it so well right away.

It looks good. If you haven't tried it already, using a hair dryer or heat gun on a low setting can help work out the wrinkles.

Looks really smooth in the photos! Nice work. I may need to do that with a few of mine soon, and keep putting it off.
