I am looking into buying a new seat for my 750.How does Corbin seats compare to the Mustang seats? I do know Corbin is quite a bit cheaper in price. Any feedback would be greatly appeciated. Thanks, happy and Safe riding.

Corbin's cheaper? Hmm I must be looking at the wrong places.

Any way the general concensus is that Corbins start out a lot firmer -- to the point of uncomfort for some -- but after a couple hundred miles they mold to your backside real well and provide a great seat. Mustangs start out softer and are well-liked by almost all (one member, Ratfink, didn't care for his). ALso consider Travelcade Saddleman (they have gel foam inserts)

But if firmness/etc is not your primary concern, Corbin makes some beautiful seats, and you have the option of a backrest built into the seat, colors, material, etc.. I have seen some beautiful (IMHO) seats for the vn750 and they were all Corbins. So If I did not care much about how firm the seat was or was not, I would get a corbin..

Just my .02

So far I like my Corbin. My only problem is that the backrest doesn't have a quick release. You have to remove the seat to remove the backrest. For the price of the backrest I would have thought they would have a better system to remove the backrest.

I don't have my backrest bolted in, and have never had a problem with it seeming loose, even when I went down last month.
It definitely takes the break in period, but I *love* my Corbin. I did my colors a bit different, I used antique brown and burgandy welting... a pic is in my profile.

I have seen Jill's seat (the bike's) and like the way she did her colors. They compliment the colors of the bike and look quite striking...

If I had to replace my Mustang, I would give the Corbin a good hard long look...
