Corbin Seat Owners

Yo, tossing around the idea of getting a Corbin seat soon. Just looking for feedback on how ya sit compared to the stock seat. Does the Corbin allow you to sit further back than stock?

Thanks!

Check out my post from last year HERE The Corbin sits you back about 1" further, it's still my favorite seat. The Saddleman is pretty comfy too.

I would recomend to stay away from Corbin, I did like the way it flet but it rubbed my tank and wore a hole in the tank. Did the same thin on my Nomad as well.
I contacted corbin and they said I had to pay to send the seat back and pay for them to fix it.
So I did. I got it back and it was worse than before. They told me I had to pay to send it back again. I said no and sold the seat and will never buy a Corbin again

Well, I already ordered a corbin in bomber jacket black. Should have in another 2 weeks or less.

I only understand what I don't understand.

First thing you'll notice is the Corbin is lower than stock. A good 3/4"". I loved mine....I also had the drivers backrest, which you can't use with a passenger unless they are skinny as a stick...

You're going to love it. Give us a review after you get it.

i have a drifter 800, the corbin seat was one of my favorite additions. HOWEVER their customer service is utter garbage. For that reason I say stay away. Check mustang seats.
