G'day there boys & girls just fitted my Corbin seat and had a nice 300 klm test ride this would have to be the best mod you can do on your VAL :D:D:D

Spend the money but the seat and you not be unhappy at all.

Got mine from Meancycles over there great service and price was very good as well.:D:D:D:D:D

I had thought about getting a Corbin, but then I decided to go with a Russell Daylong. I have always wanted one. I sent my seat to Russell a week ago. My build date is next week, and I can't wait to get it back to see it. :D

The Gunfighter model you got looks cool on your bike, though.

I have already modded the stock seat to get me through by the same guy who will do the full custom job. The only thing left of it will be the plastic base and the rest will be built just to suit my butt ;)

no not quick release, but I'm guessing you could change out the bolts with a quick release type but then run the rick of someone walking away with them. I like the fact that it would take tools and more time for someone to do that.

Wow that looks great. Could you elaborate on the comfort of the Corbin versus stock? I'm find the stock seat very uncomfortable and are looking for a solution.

Nice seat Waffen:

Compared to the stock seat, does the Corbin seat put you any further back toward the rear? I'd like the seating position to be about 1-2 inches further back. I just talked to Corbin, and they do offer making a custom seat further back for no additional fee, so that's a real nice thing for me. Now just need to determine how much to ask for.

Thanks in advance - John

The Corbin seat lets you move around more offers a little back support and sits you a little lower but compared to the stock HOUSE BRICK is well worth the money :) :) :)

I've had my Corbin for about 1500 miles now. It is broken in and feels very comfortable all day. I had them make it 1" lower and 0.5" closer to the handlebars. Fits me perfect, I can flat foot the bike now and I'm not reaching so far for the controls. The lower back support is great especially when you twist the right wrist ��. Next month is our Laughlin for lunch ride. I will post a report and pics. Its a 600 mile day. I also purchased the Rivco highway pegs. I altered them to bring them 2" closer. You really need a drill press for this. Glad I did it...foot position is perfect for me (29" inseam).

PS...don't forget to waterproof your Corbin saddle.. Also consider a cover if it is parked outside overnight..

Put a Corbin seat on my 2014 F6C , after a couple hundred miles break-in we have ridden all day without rump pain. if you like to ride long distance one or two up Corbin is a must.

What type of windshield do you have on the bike? Is it effective in dramatically cutting the wind, and eliminating helmet buffeting?
Thanks,
Mike
