Who makes seat rain covers for an LT?

Does anyone know of a company that makes rain covers for custom LT (non-vinyl) seats.

I got one with my Rick Mayer custom and never use it, I use a half cover. It's yours for shipping if you want it. It covers both seats, which can be a problem if you have a backrest.

I got one with my Russell. Works great but if I had to buy, I would get the half cover for the bike. If it do's over night or rains you don't have much to wipe down. If you just want a seat protector only, the hefty works great. Just lay over the seat and tuck in the edges around the seat.

I got one from Rick Mayer. It covers the drivers seat. I think it cost $30.00.

Thanks everyone. I am just looking for a cover for the rider's seat and I do have a backrest. The hefty bag is good for emergencies, but I am looking to leave it on for the wet season as I ride every day to work.


Looks like the russell is the way I will go.

I got mine from Air Rider it was $20.00 and has the backrest built in, very well made
