Waterproofing Leather Seat 2009 R12RT
I just got a Corbin Leather seat for my RT and am wondering what people are using to waterproof and condition their saddle. With the stitching, I'm not sure it will ever be completely waterproof but I'm sure there are products out there to improve the situation.
When I asked, Corbin only told me "You can use a product called Mothers or Ours. We just don't recommend you use anything that has a petroleum base to it."
I've used used Sno Seal on my gloves and boots to great effect and wonder if it's the appropriate product for the seat or if there are other more modern miracle products out there? Inquiring minds want to know...
I don't think that sno seal should be used on a seat
it will clog the pores of the hide. I used the Corbin leather conditioner on my seats for years. The only problem was that it made them a bit slippery.
(ask me about the time when i stopped at a light, and SWMBO started screaming at me about not telling her that the seat had been "treated" on her bike) :dunno :whistle
