Can anyone tell me how much or how little their Corbin seat changed their seat height? Looking to lose about half an inch (an inch would be better) in height. Feedback appreciated. My spouse had his Concours seat adjusted by a local guy who has quit working on Silverwing seats.

Have you tried your local bike dealer or a seat specialist they can sometimes trim the stock seat down to make it lower and may save you a bit

Call the local Harley shop and ask who they send seats to when they have customers who want alterations. We have a great guy here in Huntsville, AL - Norm of Norm's Upholstry. Takes a bit of time, but worth it.

The customizing of the stock seat is easily the best personal mod we've made. Norm is customizing a Corbin for me - can't wait to get it back.

I honestly didn't notice any change in seat height with my Corbin. --Scott

When I ordered my Corbin seat, I asked that it be made about a half-inch lower, so it does sit a bit lower than the stock seat. Corbin seat are basically custom made, so you get get it about any way you want.

Hi, I just bought my Swing about two months ago and love it except for the seat height. I received my Corbin two weeks ago and I figure it's about 1.5 inches lower than standard. When I ordered it they ask for your height, weight and inseam.

As my inseam is only 27.5 I needed all the help I could get!

Anyway, I'm really pleased with it and I can almost flat foot in tennis shoes. I don't seem to have lost any comfort. The only problem, which you get used to, is that they cut down the "nose", their term for the front of the saddle. First time I stopped a bit quickly I slid forward.

Other than that it's great, very pleased.

Good luck!
