Hi, I have a 1990 K100LT with a white(ish) saddle. I need to clean it, but I am not sure how to do it or what chemicals to use.  Suggestions and advices welcomed.


Br, Sigurd

Wait for rain. Go for a ride.

But seriously, what material is the cover?

Every OE K series seat I've ever seen the cover is just normal automotive upholstery vinyl, nothing more exotic.
