Corbin Repair?

Hornet Hive mind, I have a Corbin seat on my bike(second hand ,Maybe even 3rd so no warranty ). The stitching is starting to come undone. If it was your seat where would you take/send it.
I sent an email to Corbin , but their site suggest a refurb price of about 75% of a new one.

Thats about the best I found... most upholstery shops quoted me more than the original price of the saddle to recover it.

Currently in the garage:
True TDD-1 Kegerator Loaded with Stella Artois (Second Half Barrel)
1999 Kawasaki ZRX1100
2004 Honda 919 (Sold)
2005 Honda 919
2008 KTM SuperDuke 990
2010 Ducati Multistrada 1200 (Sold)
2011 Ducati Multistrada S Touring... Ohlins Mechatronic!

That sounds about the same as they quoted me, someday it'll be worth it but for now I can't see the split seam when I'm riding it

I have the same problem, even the material they used seems to be unique. You'd think Corbin would offer a replacement cover at a fair price for their customers.

I wondered how hard it would be to hand stitch it. Too bad there's not a place to rent a machine for this. Harbor Freight sells a machine, but it's too costly for something you wouldn't use very often.

Corbin uses pop rivets to secure the cover and I've heard it's VERY easy to destroy the carbon fiber base. They also glue the cover to the foam and there's a chance to destroy that too. Most local shops around here won't take a chance.
