PostSubject: Corbin Seat   Corbin Seat I_icon_minitimeSun Nov 18, 2018 3:46 pm

So I purchased a used Corbin seat on Craigslist. Payed $225.00 and it is as close to perfect as it could be. This is for my wife's Swing and we got it because she tried one out years ago and it let her put both feet on the ground. She loves it so far but it is really heavy and the stock strut will not hold it up. Has anyone found a stronger strut and maybe a little longer. The stock strut will not allow the seat to open very far either. Any and all help would be appreciated. Thanks Tom

My Corbin included a replacement strut. Even with the stronger strut the seat does not open as far as OEM. I might consider using a long 1x1 as a seat open support and eliminate the strut completely.
I'm not sure if Corbin offers a replacement strut for their seats but mine is definately heavier.

Good luck

I ordered this strut off Amazon earlier this year.  I think I had to drill out the eyelet a bit, but it works fine and is a higher weight rating than the original.   It should work for your new seat. And its pretty cheap too.

The eyelet was a problem for me with the Corbin. I couldn't use a cotter pin.. Ended up using a very small nail.

I'm looking for a Corbin. Anyone know of a used one not being used?

Thanks,

Pete

I found one on Craigslist is Milwaukee a few months ago.  Sadly it is no longer there.

Try searching for "Silverwing Corbin" on craigslist for the larger cities.  I haven't found a way to search all CL's nationwide.  I bring up the larger cities individually, then search.  Look for way to expand search to nearby areas.  Casts a very wide net.

Good luck!

How is it compared to the stock seat for longer trips? Silly question maybe, but some time what's seems amazing for 30 minutes isn't good for 8 hours and vice versa. Next summer the wife and I are planning a trip to a metal concert in Sweden... 1,300 miles each way!

I went so far as to buy a CTX 700 because the swing seat was terrible after 45 minutes.. CTX wasn't any better but a friend advised me to drop some coin for a corbin for the silverwing

I'm glad I did.. have a backrest also... 1100 miles last week and nary a issue with my back...
