I fitted the revcounter cable as I was waiting on the adaptor between inner cable and slotted exit from the casting on the cylinder head. I also fitted a new pair of passenger footpegs.
So, I first cut off the front section, trimmed the thin foam off the rear and cut the new front and old rear sections so they fitted neatly.
Then I taped the 2 sections in position and cut some new thin foam to blend the transition and also hide some of the damaged foam.
I will then glue the new foam in position and let it set overnight before starting to fit the new seat cover tomorrow.
Unfortunately the rubber adhesive I use had set solid in the cold so I have it warming by the fire so I can work it into the foam and seat base.
