PostSubject: new corbin seat   Fri Jun 01, 2018 7:34 pm

I just installed a new corbin seat, I was concerned about the $500.00 cost, but, after putting a few hundred miles on it, my wife and I removed the Air Hawk cushions, and will cruise in comfort !  Both the front and pile on are wider and on the curves it is a dream, I truly feel more stable at 65mph. My only problem? ...NOTHING. Wish I had done this years ago. Thank you Corbin.

I just installed a new Corbin seat on my 2013 Silverwing. It is a very comfortable seat.

My first Swing (2002) came with a Corbin seat and I didn't like it. I have no extra padding on my butt and the Corbin didn't have much padding also. My two butt cheek bones would always leave depressions on the Corbin seat much the same at the gym doing leg exercises. Maybe the seat breaks in for the new owner. Unless I am built like the original owner, the seat will not fit the new owner. I really like the original Honda seat. It is more cushioney than the Corbin. I do have an Airhawk for when my wife and I do our annual road trip in a rental car.

I had a second hand Corbin on one of my bikes. It had had little use and I was considerably heavier than the first owner so it adapted to me beautifully although it was hard to begin with. I later passed it on to a pal who was also no lightweight so it worked well for him also !

I love my Corbin seat. I have a heated one on the Goldwing as well.

What is a fair price for a used Corbin Seat with back rests and Givi Top case both in good shape

This is the link for the bike, it belongs to my brother-in-law
He would lower price on the bike if he could sell the Corbin seat and Givi Top box separate
Both came with the bike when he bought it new in 2008
Bike has always been stored under carport out of weather and sun

If you are saying that he would sale the bike without a seat ?  I do not think that would be a good idea, unless he wanted to part it out, I do not have proper info in regards to amount for seat and box only...I do know that the shipping cost is high out of state, unless you have an business account. He may be better to sell everything as is....you can not usually get the amount  a bike is worth when you add up the accessories...one usually must take a loss....good luck

He would replace the Corbin with the stock Honda seat
