Want a Corbin?

FS: Corbin for 919.

Purchased 5/06/08. Used a total of 150 miles. Base model, black leather seating, no stitching pattern, black sides and welt.

Selling because I don't like it. Thought it was going to exorcise the monkey-butt demon, but it did not deliver to my satisfaction. I highly recommend that anyone interested in purchasing a Corbin try their best to ride on one before purchasing. People's opinions vary greatly on these things, but the only surefire way to know for yourself is to put your butt in one. If you live close to me (Winston Salem, NC), feel free to come by and physically try it out.

Original purchase price was $439. I'm asking $300 for the seat. You pay for shipping (duh...).

See, that's my fear about buying items I can't try out. So where do you go from here, as far as a saddle that will work for you? I'm looking for alternatives myself. I have few issues right now, but I've not spent more than a 100 mile stretch on mine, but can tell that anything longer can become problematic.

It doesn't look like the passenger seat is as built up as the regular one's? Is it, or is it more of the solo look like a few of them floating around that I've scene on here?

Second dibs, if it's more of the solo look I'll take it actually. Would like to try it, but dont' think I'll be flying down anytime soon.

I think its just the pictures, and the fact that the leather is not hugging the foam right in the seat section? If it is a solo style without the comfy passenger area, I wouldn't be interested in it then.

Edit: The wife said, and I quote "Hell ya!" So as long as it is just the regular seat with the comfy rear for her we are good to go!

It's the base model that Corbin sells, no bells or whistles. Not a solo seat. It's just like the seat in this picture, except the piping is black and no backrest.

Well than to anyone that may be considering getting rid of their solo corbin I'd be interested, or if anyone knows of one.

I have a Seargent and while I like it, I wish it had more of a pocket to sit in to get me in place. Foam is great though and the look is greatly improved over the stock seat.

Now delete this topic before MR. Mike sees it.
I don't want him to know I've bought something else off here!
Because I'll never hear the end of it!

Just to give a heads up, the Corbin seats don't break in right away. I rode mine for almost a thousand miles (about a month and a half) before it broke in to my butt and fit the way I wanted it.

Good info, Hooker. Keep that in mind, Ripper.

I'm 5'9" with a 30" inseam. I guess that's pretty average. I just couldn't get comfortable with how far back the seat 'dish' pushed me further away from the bars. Just couldn't get used to it. Maybe 150 miles wasn't enough seat time. I am rather impatient...

Anywho... to answer your question, Bad Dad, I'm going with this guy...

Again, it's a crap shoot. Opinions will be as diverse as the peeps posting them. I can only hope for the best... Some guys on here actually reworked their own seats. Didn't you do that, MarylandMike?

My .02 - went from stock to Sargent to Corbin and IMO for those still on the fence...

Corbin > Sargent > stock

Great deal! Your butt will thank you!!

I forgot about that part. When I first got mine, I didn't fit the seat properly front to back either. I just eventually got used to it, I guess.

You're right though, it's a crapshoot at best. What works for one isn't necessarily right for another. The only thing we all agree on is that the stock seat sucks!

Wouldn't be the first time I've lead the Mod Squad! Not a new game to me but it is a new product. Went from Cars to Quads to Bikes. Its not worth modding unless you have at least double its true value in aftermarket goodies that won't help it resale for chit. I waste more money on toys than I care to admit to.

Just you wait, its only just beginning for me!

You should have seen the box before I 'shrunk' it around the seat!! I didn't grace you with the bountiful gift of styro peanuts that accompanied the original shipment. Talk about overkill... Corbin doesn't cut any corners, that's for sure!

You must have given the peanuts to RC90, because he used them (ALL) to ship the Joe Rocket Jacket!
