Funny, I just got mine about 5 days ago.
I had a great experience with Corbin. Between the emails and phone calls, my CSR named Jessica was great. They made the seat about 1 inch higher for me, walked me through the whole process and it actually was built and delivered about 2 weeks sooner than I was expecting. I would rate the whole buying experience as really quite good and had no problems or rudeness whatsoever.
Sorry to hear about your bad experience with them ttudesperado, As you know there really isn't much choice of saddles for us Versys pilots out there. I felt that the Corbin was the best option as it didn't reuse the stock seat pan which is likely the partial cause for the discomfort in the first place. I've heard about more bad than good experiences with them, however. For me, that was simply not the case.
As far as fit, when I put it on, it wouldnt fit either. The front tab went on OK, but the rear wouldn't latch. Searched on here and see that it is quite common to shim the rear loop with a couple of washers. Did that and it fits snug. Also found out from someone on here that if you add those 'lil felt pads to the rubber stop bumpers at the rear of the seat, it will actually fit better with a Givi rear rack. The seat is of very high quality. The mods were not a big deal, but I too kinda thought it should clip right on out of the box
From sitting on it in the garage, the seat feels like it will be way better than the stocker.
The only problem I have with my Corbin now is that we're getting about 35 cm of snow tonight, on top of the 5 we already have and I haven't been able to ride with the new seat yet at all!!!
