    OK, we can meet up sometime. The 11"x14" that I have is what is called for for the YZF-R1. I would think your R1 seat would be pretty similar.

    Now that I've used one, seems too big would be ok too. But i wouldn't want one that is too small for the seat

    The characters we met around the camp fire were the most interesting part. Very entertaining to say the least
