Seat issue.
« on: October 13, 2013, 06:47:57 pm »
Any body else experience this. When the seat is in the lowest position it tends to ride forward leaving an ass groove at the back that can be a bit weird feeling over distance.

Or is it just me?

Have you put the rear seat in the lower position as well?

The rear seat height does not actually change - but has two sets of slots for the front seat to engage with.

Fit the front seat first - engage the height adjuster rail with the front brackets.
If set to the low position push down firmly on the back edge of the seat to locate the rubbers in the mountings,
If set to the high position, the seat rubbers lie on top of the frame.

Next fit the rear seat ....

If the front seat is set to the low position, engage the rear seat lower slots with the tangs of the riders seat,
and if the front seat is set to the high position, engage the rear seat upper slots with the tangs of the riders seat.
Push down on the back of the rear seat to engage the lock  :028:

Does the Corbin change the seating position...up or down, forward or back?

800 completely trouble free miles for me at the weekend (480 sat, 320 sun) on the standard heated  seat, my a€#* would have hurt on my old sprint but it didn't on the trophy. The corbin looks nice but i think the rider is the limit on my bike now not the seat comfort.
