    What type of leather ?? Coated or Uncoated ?? If coated almost any product will work as most will be wiped off. Some UV protection will remain. If uncoated, then consider Connolly or Leatherique.

    Another good question is..Is it leather. I paid 400 for the "leather" seat I wanted. If any portion is leather it is sold as a leather seat. The least expense all leather full seat I have found was around 750.00.
    I say this because you may find you just need a vinyl product for most of the seat.

    most leather products are compatible with vinyl ... and you are correct, not all leather is leather. Infact, alot of car seats use vinyl insets on the sides, while leather on the seating area only. Why ?? Because vinyl is typically less prone to wearing out as quickly.

    i use pinnacle leathercleaner and conditioner. and it work's great . no sticky greasy mess it restores my leather back to that supple feeling it had when it was new and that new car smell is back too .its like buying an italian leather jacket wich i have many its awsome but if you have a worn hard leather seat like some bike's iv'e seen you"ll want to saddle soap it and then condition it . it will be back to new in no time good luck . iv'e worked with leather for a long time ive tanned ,hand hammered and worked allot with it in all type's of thing's but you'll see this plan work's
