Have been spending a lot of time on the Corbin site lately.
I have been looking into creating a shorter reach to the ground for 650 I'm getting soon. I have a 29" inseam.
My dealer recommended shaving a little of the foam off or having it done.
Jim tells me there is only about 5/8" of foam to start with, so I can't gain much there, unlless I want to sit on the naked pan under the vinyl. :(

Corbin offers a "close" model which is closer to the dash than the regular model (which is a little farther back than the stock seat apparently).

Does that mean it is the same as the stock seat or closer?

They also hint that the seat height is lower too, (which is my main interest), but I can't tell by how much. 1/2" to 1" would probaly do for me.

All things being equal (seat height wise), I am sure that the leather is more comfortable than the vinyl will be.

Pricey of course, but maybe worthwhile!
Their backrests are way cool too. :)

Another incentive for the "close" seat option is it still has the same capacity for two full face helmets etc., while the other seat states it does not.

Any thoughts on this anyone?

I think the short Corbin is higher than stock, I carved some foam out of mine in butt and added a little at front of seat, better now. I got an Airhawk for Xmas and i think that is the answer, but spring will tell. Wayne
There is a guy in Ont that I was going to send my seat too, he has a web site with lots of pictures of seats that he has done, I will find it and post it. i talked to him a few times on phone, said he has been doing motorcycle seats for years, has redone a few Corbin seats. Wayne
