The assembly of the covers is similar for all types of saddles, even if the photo of the saddle in this manual does not look like yours, the fixing system is always the same.
We recommend that you read the manual in its entirety and view the video tutorials, if you recognize that the assembly is not within your reach, we recommend that you rely on a saddler in your area.

Your nulva saddle has been made with top quality materials and yarns, highly resistant to atmospheric agents. We do not recommend leaving the motorcycle in the sun for a long time and covering the saddle during the washing phases, in this way you will favor the longer life of the materials and colors.
This cover is made with materials suitable for outdoor use, however a good care of your saddle will allow you to keep the cover always new and with bright colors.
To clean your new cover you can use water and neutral soap, making sure the saddle is dried immediately after the washing phases.
The velvet effect PVC material may be a little more delicate than others, if your saddle is made of velvet effect, we recommend making sure that it is not exposed to too much sun, and that it is washed and dried immediately. of a material suitable for saddlery but some loss of color and luster may still occur.
The assembly of a cover can take between 15 and 20 minutes, for some covers such as COMFORT SYSTEM covers, the assembly can be much longer and more complicated. The assembly phases are always the same, however in the case of COMFORT SYSTEM, we recommend that you contact experts right away.
Before starting the work of assembling your cover, we invite you to use the necessary precautions, use gloves and glasses to remove the pins and be very careful when applying the staples with the gun.
The company declines all responsibility due to accidents caused during the installation of the product.
To start the assembly get:
- a screwdriver (1.)
- a narrow nose pliers (2.)
- a manual staple gun (3.)
- electric (4.)
- pneumatic (5.)
- protective film (optional) (6.)
Pay close attention to the staple gun, it could accidentally cause injuries, we recommend you try to shoot a few staples at a piece of wood before starting the assembly.
motorcycle saddles are made from very hard plastics, piercing the plastic can be difficult if you don't have a strong gun. It is also possible to carry out the work with a manual gun, we recommend an electric or compressed air gun. It is also important that the gun pressure is not excessive, if the pressure is too much it could cause the cover to tear. When you remove the staples of the old cover, pay close attention to your fingers, loosen the staples (1.) and then remove them with the pliers one at a time (2.).
During the assembly phase you may have difficulties, you may waste a lot of time and have a disappointing result, we recommend going step by step and not doing the work quickly. It may be useful to view our video tutorials that you find on our channel YouTube

After removing all the clips securing your old saddle cover, slide the old cover off.
(Option) If you want, you can put a protective film between the seat foam and the new cover to help insert the new cover and create a barrier between the sponge and the cover.
Adhering the front part of the saddle (1), slide the cover over the saddle with your hands, paying close attention to the front part that adheres well to the corners of the saddle. Guide the cover towards the rear of the saddle (2) and towards the sides (3). When your cover is well housed above the saddle you can proceed with locking.
First of all, pull the cover towards the bottom of the saddle and nail the rear with the staple gun, locking it with 2/3 staples. (4)
Then proceed with the front part always pulling well and using 2/3 staples. (5)
Finally proceed with the two side clips using 2/3 staples per side pulling outwards (6), trying to keep the center aligned with the saddle.
At this point the saddle should be locked, now you have to check if it is perfectly in the center and check that it does not want to be pulled further. Should an additional pull of the cover be necessary, remove the clips that block the side to be serviced and replace them after the cover has been placed.
