I haven't tried either, but if a newer Corbin can't make you comfortable, you have no hope.

I say "newer" because I happaned across a used Corbin on a DR650 that was far too soft for Corbin seat foam. Either the foam had broken down, or ... ?

Is this a weight issue, or can you not sit on a bicycle saddle longer than 30 minutes either? (Gotta develop that riding butt.)

PLUS, I'm informed that other forum members are experiencing this problem, also! Is my problem the tip of a growing iceberg?

Forgot to mention this other aspect of my problem: when I go to a member’s homepage, there’s no link to allow me to send a PM to that member.

Any insight and help you can provide is much appreciated - by myself and others.

Thanks in advance,
Lex

P.S. I would have sent this request via PM but, well, you know...

Roger got back to me on the 28th, and said people were working on it, and it might take a few days. Apparently, you broke it really good . I asked if he had contacted you with that info, but he didn't reply .

Meantime, have you checked your settings, to see if your PMs for turned off somehow? Also, when I quote your posts, there's paragraphs of code that I don't normally see. Not sure if that means anything.
Short of that, I got nothin'...

Hi Lex.
Do you have the Enable Private Messaging box checked? I know, too simple; but that's all I have.

I have a Sargent seat and have ridden it more than 300 miles in a day. This was on curvy roads with a lot of shifting around. I am usually more comfortable on curvy roads.

Thank you, Krusty and also Roger and ER70S-2 for your efforts at sorting this out.

If Roger tried to PM me, I wouldn’t be able to receive the PM…

I notice that Adv Grifter has started a thread in Ask Baldy complaining that he has the same problem as me. NOW I’ve got my suspicions , this is all the fault of that rascally Adv Grifter (he’s always getting’ into trouble) and I’m simply an innocent caught up in the over-kill.

I will discontinue pursuing this problem in the DR650 thread, and post instead in Adv Grifter’s thread.

Again, thank you all for your assistance, and apologies to everyone else for the intrusion – I didn’t know enough to post in Baldy’s thread, before. Won't happen again, promise.

Lex

I just spent 12 days in Mexico riding 6-8 hrs a day, my Sargent seat never gave me any pain, 3rd bike I've gone with Sargent, haven't been disappointed yet.

No worries, Lex. I hope it gets worked out soon.

1998 and early '99 were equipped with a solid idler gear that created a problem when the engine kicked back during shutdown, breaking out the gear bearing bosses. This also breaks out and destroys the left case half due to its ridged design. The case halves always come in matched pairs and cost in excess of $650.00 not to mention labor charges to change all internal parts into new cases. This should not be taken lightly. '96 and '97 had the torque limiter gear that is designed to slip due to a preloaded slip clutch arrangement. Well they went back to this design in mid '99 after vin # X2100561 so if your Vin # predates this you should consider installing this updated item shown above.
Erm...I have briefly read about this, but just to clarify, mine is the '96 model, and while I have noticed it makes a pop after shutting down on some occasions, should I be worried? I can check the VIN number later today, and before that I won't be riding it anyway...goddamn snow (as seen on the picture! )

Cheers, Chris

Okay, that's good to know. Also, upper roller - remove? I don't know what has been done to the bike, as when I got it it has had SO many parts changed. The obvious things are easy to see, but for instance when looking into changing the headlight, I noticed that it was already unusually white and bright - possible already changed.
Might tear it apart to see what has been done - you always need to know your bike!

Cheers, Chris!

The one thing I noticed on your bike is that it doesn't have any fork protection except those ludicrous shields. You'd be better off putting gaiters back on. The yellow ones are a nice touch. ;)
