Corbin Seat for GSW-Height Adjustment

Just bought the new one-piece Corbin for my 2014 GSA. I've had many Corbins before and like them.

I know most Corbins cannot be adjusted for height but wondering if anyone who has one of these new 1 piece GSW seats and if you can set the front to the high setting---or does the front have to be in the low setting to fit on the bike?

Will be very interested to get your impressions on the Corbin seat and its fit on the GSA. I talked with them about their seat and customizing it to add some height and bring up to where the stock GSA is in the high positions.

I need the height. 6'1" and a 35" inseam. Hoping this seat will be as good as other Corbin's for me. Otherwise, will be for sale in the FM for a shorter rider!

I just shipped my one piece Corbin back to the factory for a rebuild at no charge. I'm 6'4" with 34 inch inseam and the seat can only be set on low position. As such it's too low and I find it sets me back too far on my 2014 GSA.

If possible, please post back on how they did modifying your seat. Given the specs on the website and my conversation with them, I'd have to have about .75" added to the overall height.

Also, does anyone know why they only put one heat controller on the seat and not dual zone switches. On my RT, it was rare when my wife and I wanted the same seat heat setting.

Interesting, mine is fine set in the low position. Also a 34" inseam, knees are bent but they are well below my hip height. I'd say the corbin in the low position works well for my size/height (6'1"). Some of the difference is its a hard seat so you don't sink down, reducing seat height like other seats.

Very happy with it.
