I recently  purchased an OEM style seat cover  from a company call “vintage roost “. The bike is supposedly an 89, but being that its the "Johnny Cash craigslist pieced together bike",  I really have no idea what year the seat is from. I do know it is flat/Square across the front against the fuel tank.
When I Took it to the upholstery shop to install it, it seems to be way too big.  A little bit too wide, but mostly too long. Almost to the point that the Kawasaki logo is going to be wrapping around the backside of the seat. Upon further research I realize that they made different height foams, But what about the length?
Anyone on here ever deal with vintage roost?
Thanks for any help

thanks sandblaster,
 I got off the smartphone, and got to a computer, where I could actualy do a REAL search.
So am I correct here? 88 and up are all the same? And also 88-89 125/250 will work as well?

You can scroll about a mile to the right once you get there..
