Seat replacement wanted

I guess I don't have enough post for the WTB section
After riding from Sudbury to Sturgen Falls and back (170 km's ) my butt is still sore the day after.
Sooooo, looking to buy a replacement seat for my 2010 650 DLA...let me know what you have

Thanks

It shows you have 20 posts. I believe it's only 10 needed or maybe that's for posting pics. Either way, go find some interesting topics and chime in. I'm sure you have something interesting to share.

Try a Beadrider first ....least expensive approach ..one rider on here did back to back 1000 mile days and a 14,000 mile trip to Alaska and back from Florida just by adding the Beadrider to the stock seat. Even on my expensive seats...the Beadrider still goes on ....least expensive option to start.



Start of a 3 week 10k km cross country ride...I took the Beadrider off the Terry Adcox seat for a couple of hours in Yellowstone on the way home....THAT was a mistake...left it on the rest of the way.

Doesn't work for everyone but hellishly less expensive than a custom seat. I needed the Terry Adcox to get the bike height lower....and the Adcox seat is a huge improvement over stock ...I can do a couple of 2 hour stints on it alone ....with the Beadrider added??? all day long.

Lovely seat but taller than the stock saddle.

I had my seat lowered which I like in the city but when I go on longer trips I use a sheep skin, a sheep skin can be had for around 65.00

Well if anyone knows of another used Corbin for sale in Ontario, please let me know, because mine is the same as the one linked in the Kijiji ad earlier and is totally coming apart at the seams. I like these seats for their comfort, but my kevlar pants are very abrasive

I have a sheepskin too that will fit nicely over the stock seat, but I gave away my stock seat and prefer the Corbin.

edit: found a used Corbin.
