Corbin Seat

Has anyone tried a Corbin seat? Factory one seems to be losing comfort over time. They offer a tan leather with black piping that should look great on my bike. Thanks.

Yes, but eveyone's Butt is differnt.

I loved it on my 2006 DL650 (Actually had two as I wore one out.)

On my 2012 DL650 there was an ordering screw-up (by a dealer) that meant it never got as comfy as it should and on my 2015 DL1000 it is way better than stock but I am going to send tit to Corbin over the winter to have it redone. (It very much may be that other health issues are making my butt too sensitive but I am going to have them add more padding.)

..Tom

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)

I haven't ridden one but I saw one parked at Sears Point. The owner wasn't around and I just barley resisted climbing on his bike. It looked really great (black with white piping). I've had Corbins on a couple of bikes and loved them. Cool company culture from Mike on down. Genuine bikers.

Curious, how many miles on you fading-comfort seat ?

I love my corbin with heat, much more comfy for me anyway. Puts you farther away from tank and more room to move around. Have had this seat on 2 stroms and roughly 50000kms. No regrets here

I ordered a Corbin, bomber jacket leather for the seat, no welt, black snake faux on the sides and a light silver stitch and logo. They did what they call a nose job to lower the height a bit. It looks awesome on my white 015 1k. And it's more comfortable than the stock imo.

It's better to want something you don't have than to have something you don't want.

I've had a Corbin for a number of years. After about a year I had the pilot section re-padded with memory foam and it's been great since !!!

Just hit 13k on it. I love the Corbin on my BMW that I've had for 24 years, recovered once.
