I purchased three cammo seat covers (genuine Yamaha accessory) about three weeks ago, which were out of stock at the time, well one has turned up, but not the other two. They are sold separately not as a three pack. When I looked on the Yamaha website yesterday they have been removed and are no longer listed.

Does anyone know if these have been discontinued or what the story is, I'm not very happy if they are no longer available! The ones for the Rhino are still available, does anyone know if the seats are the same on the Rhino as the Viking, or if the Rhino seat covers will fit the Viking?

Thanks in advance.

The seats are very different between a Rhino and the Viking

post up some photos.
Do you have a Viking? Never remember you posting anything about it, or any pictures. Just curious.

Oh ok, the one is in the shop waiting for me right now but I won't pick it up unless there are two more coming, all three are paid for and were quite expensive, about $150 US each.

So the second seat cover has turned up but that's it, no more available.WTF Yamaha? What good are two seat covers on a three seater sxs? I'll send these ones back and hope that Yamaha bring out a new range soon like Sandbagger said.

I hear what you're saying, they are way overpriced, although they are 5mm neoprene and quite good quality. I work seven days a week mostly so it is easier just to put up with the price pain and get them from new, then I can forget about it. And using the Viking mostly for work I really need thick strong seat covers that can handle screw drivers in back pockets, sunlight etc. And being in Australia no one will make them here and it will be hard for me to find after market ones in the US, unless someone kindly posts them up here! But yeah, way too expensive.

I am making my own seat covers for a fraction of the price. Check out the pics on my profile.
Wow they look great pyro, same cammo as the Yammy ones. How thick and durable is the material and what's it made out of if you don't mind me asking.

For me my dogs like to jump onto the seats and I don't want their toe nails to tear the seats. Also I don't want to snag it from having things in my pockets like knives, screwdriver ect.
That reason plus they might help stop the sun from making the seats brittle and cracking.
