Seat cover help??

I've to both a SUN EZ-1 SX and EZ-Sport AX (CLWB and LWB) bent, it comes with a tri-colored pattern seat cover but I've noticed that the (gray) material on the sides of the seat are kinda "abraiding" my Lycra bicycling shorts! I wanted to know if the "Rans LWB" seat covers would fit my SUN bents, they look to be made with the material on the center/rear part of my current seat that doesn't cause a problem!

Thanks for any suggestions, comments, etc., it's apprecaited!

I think RANS and TourEasy seat bases are roughly the same size and the covers will work on both. Another option:

I bought a cover from Mark at Power On Cycling and it has served me well. You might give him a call.
