Rear seat cover?

I am looking at purchasing a colour matched rear seat cover for my 2007 Ninja. I am wondering if anyone else has purchased one of these and found it to be a waste of money? I am looking at about 100 bucks and I dont know that I want one that badly. Any opinions are welcome.

Personally I would put the $100.00 into something necessary like help to pay for tyre or tyres, sprockets to chain, even the cost of oil to fuel when riding. Rather then make the bike more attractive.

Whenever I think about putting something on my bike I ask if it'll help me corner better, stop better, or accellerate better. If the answer is no to all 3 questions I pass. 95% of the time I decide to put the money I'd have spent on a part into more track time. The only mods on my bike are a damper and ss lines.

My bike came with one, so I didn't have to make that decision. However, when I got wrecked, that was one of the parts that was broken. I ended up buying a new one, because my bike has become notorious for having the "b!tch eliminator kit" installed (no rear pegs, seat cowl). Not only that, but I personally think it makes it look a lot better. But that's jut my opinion. I won't disagree with everyone else who says spend it on something effective, because that is sound advice. But aesthetically, it's a good addition. And it makes it more aerodynamic too. I think.

Yeah, Kawi's cheap I'd not buy a new one but keep an eye out for a used one if you opt to pick on up. I think $75 is the going used rate, shipped.

I just got one as a birthday gift. I like the look and rarely ride anyone around. Makes a convenient excuse for people at work as to why I don't parade them around the lot...no seat for ya!

I got a cowl for mine. Looks cool and all. Heres why its worth the money to me. I hate giving rides, Im cool with killing myself but just as soon not bring someone else along. It makes it easy to just say, Id love to give you a ride, but I cant, no back seat. Rear seat cowl=100.00---keeping the curb monkeys of your bike=priceless!!!
