**SOLD**Corbin Gunfighter Solo Seat

I bought this 2 or 3 years ago from a fellow WTer (3dcycle), and only used it ONCE! I like the seat, but the seat cowl on my bike simply would not fit over it, and so I stayed with the stocker. The Corbin is also not ideal for aggressive or trackday riding, which is what I do most .

When I bought it, it had a tear up front, but it never constituted a problem. Since then, I managed to create 2 more tears on the bottom edge, because I kept it in my race trailer on white wire racks, and I guess every time I used the trailer, the seat would rub on the racks and eventually these bottom tears were the result. There are also a few light scuffs on the top rear section, and I have no idea how they got there.

The two at the bottom are hardly noticeable when mounted on the bike, but the original one is. If I recall correctly, this seat had about 5K miles on it. I added not more than 50 miles to that.

With all that said, it does me no good sitting around on the shelf. I'm selling it cheap to WTers at $250 shipped. I'm gonna list it locally for $250 as well.

Wow, indeed super rare! This is the only other one I've seen besides mine. Great deal/price too! Why is this even still here?!

Just an FYI guys, my wife finds the pillion to be more comfortable than the stock pillion seat! Someone grab this puppy asap!

How tall are you and how young are your knees?
I'm near 6 ft with longer legs and old knees.
I found the added seat height to be a real help and can go faster and longer with the Corbin on.
I also found the increased seat height to nicely match up my knee to the upper side of the tank where it flares out. I put a grip pad there and it really works nicely for getting off on the other side.

5'-9" and 45 yrs old. My knees aren't too bad... yet! The Corbin, for me, has a "pocket" that seats well, which is why I think it's best for commuting or long rides. At the track (and maybe because of my height), I can't get my ass off it like I can with the stock seats. But at 6' tall, I can see you being able to do that!

I had one on my dear departed ZRX1100. I did two track days with it on, though I wasn't doing much hanging off most of the time. I have yet to find a seat my ass really likes though.
