Corbin usually manufactures their own seat bases. So there is nothing to return or exchange. This is part of the higher cost, but you get to keep your stock seat.... I also think they might replace the hydraulic strut that lifts the seat, because their seat will be heavier. This will also add to the cost if they do it. It will be a great seat, but expensive.Scutour said:It's definately gonna be expensive...my guess is at least $550 USD plus add for the backrests. I also suppose these will be manufactured from a stock seat and if so I wonder what the exhange or core return policy will be.
Corbin prefers to use a leather seating surface and vinyl sides on their seats. The reason is that the vinyl flexes better. The Corbin seat on my V-Strom is about 80 % leather surface, 20 % vinyl were it needs to flex. They will, however, let you customize the design over the phone, and they have a great many colors to choose from in both the leather and vinyl materials. I went with their basic standard design for the V-Strom, but had yellow piping added, which looks gorgeous on the yellow bike. I've had three Corbin seats (Suzuki V-Strom, Kawasaki Concours, and Honda Shadow 1100), and I've been 100% happy with each one.Scutour said:I also presume these seats will be leather?
