Check the East forums under regional, I see ride invites in NJ pretty often.

Corbin ?

I got a few $$ burning a hole in my pocket and was wondering what everone thought of the Corbin seat for the XRL.

I've heard horror stories about them fitting bad and being difficult to put on, and that scares me a bit because my stock seat is nearly impossible to put on with that rear rack on.
I've also heard about people that thought the stocker was more comfortable. The seat on mine sucks, so I think the Corbin would be alot better. Heck, its wider so it gotta be a bit more comfy right? I'm planning on doing some big rides this year so something has to change.

I like the one Medicine Creek has on his bike, the black top and red sides look nice.

also, those of you with this seat, what do you think of the piping, does if bother you at all?

Thanks

Geico sucks. It used to be the official insurance co. of the AMA, so I insured my dead-stock GPz550 through them. I had to drive the bike to the insurer so they verify that it was totally stock. One month later they increased my policy by 20%. The next month they increased it again. I want to step on and squash that gecko.

I have liability-only insurance my XR650L through Allshaft Allstate for $40 a year.

I had trouble with the fit of my corbin using a 4 gallon IMS tank on my '93. It's more comfortable than the stock seat, but it does slope toward the front more than I would like. I live with the piping, but if I had realized I could get it without, I would have gone that route.
Bottom line: Check out other possibilities...

What brand of rear rack do you have?

It's still there. Link. I might have bid on it if I had not already ordered a new one.

I just insure mine with the basic plan. Got the corbin seat, it has about 100mi. on it now and i'm very happy with the comfort. It is available with black piping. It was a pia to try and fit it the 1st time butg I made a couple of adjustments to the tung (real problem) and cut away some of the rubber grommets. Oh and I damaged the rear of the seat with a rubber mallet.

Thanks for the link!

I have the Pro Moto billet rack. I think my seat sucks but I don't know if I'll be happy with the corbin. I guess I should sit on one first.

well, it's all put back together and ready for advwest.

this is how the subframe support/rack mount looked after grinding and paint.


and this i how it looked all put back together.







took it for a little spin this evening. with the supertrapp the jetting is way way to rich. 160 main with needle raised, 152 pilot. get major cut out on top end and pipe is oily black soot coated. ordered jets from sudco to fix. i think a 158 main will do it. i have all 12 disk in the supertrapp and had the stock pipe with the bafffle removed before. only thing i need now is some new tires. plan to put some on just before riding to advwest.

i think i am going to like the corbin. in never did ride with it (the corbin) with stock mounting. i did set it on the bike and set on it with it mounted the way it came. i think the half inch i raised the front will make it perfect for me. i did not feel any slide to the front while riding. yaddy yaddy yah, anyway, my cock-n-balls were not asleep/numb after my little one hour ride, and that is what i order the corbin for in the first place.

Nice, I had to put 18 disks in my Supertrap with the 160 main to get it to clean up, still might be a touch rich.
