How to Clean a Mustang Motorcycle Seat

Written By

Mustang motorcycle seats and accessories are made of the highest quality vinyl and will retain their looks for years. Since you will, however, occasionally want to wash off some dust, mud, grease, bugs, pollen or the inevitable bird poop, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • While Mustang motorcycle seats can be washed with any mild, non-abrasive detergent, we strongly recommend Protect All, a do-it-all type of product that cleans, polishes, waxes, treats and protects every surface.
  • Protect All’s water repellent Carnauba Wax Formula provides durable protection against all elements. As their ads say, “simply spray, wipe, and polish dry for a beautiful, durable, lasting shine.” Protect All’s anti-static property is ideal for treating vinyl to a clean, dry natural appearance. It leaves no oily film and, with regular use, Protect All’s highly effective UV absorber additive helps to protect all surfaces by absorbing the UV light rays and blocking them from reaching the finish.
  • Yep, it sounds like a commercial for the stuff but, honestly, we use Protect All on every seat before it leaves the Mustang Motorcycle Seat factory. In fact, if you stop by and visit our display at any of the motorcycle rallies and events we attend, and you will see cans of Protect All in our toolboxes and under our tables.
  • Do NOT use alcohol-based or other “wax” products on your motorcycle seat. Although Protect All does contain some wax, it will not make your seat slippery or ultra shiny.  You don’t want to make your seat slippery–that is just plain dangerous.

Motorcycle Seat Tip of the Day: The best way to treat scratches or scuff marks… gently apply a very small dab of black paste shoe polish on the affected area. Allow it to dry completely, then buff out with a clean soft cloth.

As always, if you have any questions (about cleaning your Mustang motorcycle seat or otherwise), please contact one of our seat experts using the info available on our Contact Page.
