What are the main reasons for motorcycle upholstery damage?
The sun can do a number on motorcycle upholstery, especially if you leave your bike out in the sun for prolonged periods of time. The material attracts natural sunlight and sunlight can cause upholstery to fade, crack, or warp over time.
If you have stored your bike in an enclosed space, such as a garage, for the duration of the colder months, the dampness can also cause the seat to crack or warp. If you keep your motorcycle outdoors for extended periods of time, a cover can help deflect the sun and preserve your upholstery.
Why is it important to get my motorcycles upholstery repaired if it is damaged?
Like anything else, if you ignore the problem, there is a high chance things could get worse. A small tear or minor fading may be minuscule at the time. If left untreated, it could worsen. The once small fix may turn into a whole replacement of the upholstery. Getting your motorcycle upholstery repaired upon finding any damage can help ensure you don’t face heavier ramifications down the road.
