Corbin seat will not fit.
« on: January 20, 2016, 08:28:56 pm »
The new seat arrived today and it doesn't fit. It is rubbing the frame forward of the helmet holders.

I called Corbin and they suggested I use washers as shims under the front and rear attachment points of the seat. I used two washers under each bolt, the seat will lock down now with some force but the center rubber bumpers do not touch the frame.

Has anyone else experienced this?

To me that would be 'not fit for purpose' and a refund or replacement!

It's not like it would have been a cheap seat!

I've had mine for several months.  I have to push down with a little force on the back to get it to lock but it's really a perfect tight fit.  I can't imagine they would have changed the seat pan.  You might also check that the bolt that holds the rear latch on the bike hasn't loosened up causing it to drop down.

Here are some pics for reference.

The seatpan in the bottom pic is rubbing the frame on the top pic. I took the side covers off to see the rubber bumpers not making contact with the frame.

The latch was tight, other Corbin seats I have owned never had these issues.

There dinltlo seem ti many Members that have the Corbin seat -

I would suggest going back to Corbin and saying you are not happy with it,
or with their suggestion to be add washers / shims, and that even if you did
it would not solve the problem of it actually not fitting yur Trophy.

Yes. They need the feedback for their product development and quality control not too mention the fact that you will have paid a lot of money for an aftermarket accessory supposedly designed for the Trophy which does not fit. You should not have to 'pack it out' to make it fit.

Mine came with a Corbin when I bought it.  Fitted well.  The Corbin seat pan looks like it's made of some kind of hardened composite material.  Might not take much to carve out slightly the area(s) that are interfering with proper fit.  I agree you shouldn't be shimming with washers.
