The seat looks great! $479 is a lower price than I thought it would be, but they came up with the lighter weight seat pan so that they didn't have to replace the strut. Clever idea. (On the Silverwing they replace the strut.)
It's still a lot of money for a seat, but if I had the loose change, I'd probably go for it. I'd pass on the backrests though, especially if that is $199 apiece!
There seems to be some interest in the Corbin saddles. Corbin saddles have a love/hate status amount motorcycle owners. I would suggest to those interested in a custom saddles that have not have had any experience with Corbin saddles go to a dealer who sells them and try one before you order one.
(quote)I don't like how Corbin makes all their seats into saddle types. I get saddle-sore just looking at the pictures.
And why don't they take our existing seats to build into them to save us money? (end quote)
I have printed the Burgman Corbin seat information and like the saddle look. My question is it states that the passenger length is only 12 inches. My present passenger length is much more than that. It also states that the seat height is 31 inches. Present seat height is 29. I feel that the seat is too high now. my head above the windshield and have considered cutting down the seat some. Anyone with a Corbin seat have any comments.
Does the Corbin seat come with hardware, or do we need to use our hinges, latch - I guess we keep the same hold up rod
.-(or do we send our old seat) :?
I looked at the Sargentcycle seat site but they are offering more foam and recover, not a new seat.
Before anyone orders thru them. Im trying to work out a deal with Corbin to give BurgmanUSA members a discount. Give me a few days for them to get back with me on this. It may or may not be a better deal than what I can come up with. But I'll try.
You always use your existing hardware with a Corbin seat. They provide their own seat pan, so you get to keep your exiting seat. Corbin also stated that their seat uses the existing prop rod. I believe you will also have to transfer the trunk light over to the Corbin.
I'm not sure if Greengoose received his seat yet (I don't think so). But when he does, he'll be able to confirm all this.
