Need Quick help Polaris seat removal

As stated, I want to take my polaris
indy 400 seat off to examine the
extent of cover rippage.
How does the seat come off?

There are some bolts under the body, at the rear of the tunnel that you remove and the seat should lift off and unplug the lights.

Use a heavy duty chisel point needle in the sewing machine, be sure that the machine you use can handle the strain.

I used to be a seamstress, but I couldn't mend-straight!!
Get it!??
Seriously, vinyl is not hard to sew.....get a heavy duty needle & some real strong nylon thread. I made some seat cushions for my golf-cart. They came out great & I didn't even ruin the wife's machine!

OK
the seat cover is done.
It is far from perfect, but it fits a lot
better than the silver duct tape that
was holding it togeather.
My advice is to make your paterns
a little smaller so that you have to
really streach it on for a better fit.

Now to get the plastic rear door
so my parts don't fall out this winter.
