I thought the stock cover worked well until I left it out in a hard rain at work one day. Came out afterward to find the pillion soaked through. I used a lot of Lexol leather conditioner numerous times on it, which reduced the stain but it is still there a few weeks later. So I ordered a Cool Ass seat cover. It blocks UV rays, keeps the saddle cooler by reflecting away the heat much better than the black stock one and most importantly for those of us with leather, its waterproof. It just barely fits legthwise, and the width is more than enough so you can tuck it underneath to keep it securely attached. It comes with a small bag to store it in, but even better, it will fit in the stock seat cover hole, a bit more tightly, but it works. It is made of an aluminized plastic of some sort, and seems to be durable. Anyway, I just wanted to share because I am really happy with it. They apparently just raised the price a couple of bucks over the $23 I paid, but for the quality it is a very good deal.
Here are some pics.
