New Corbin Seat
I just got my new Corbin seat yesterday. It took about three weeks to get here from the day I ordered it. I put it on last night, and conditioned the leather seating surfaces with some stuff that came with my leather couch. The seat popped right on, without any trouble. I put maybe 10 miles on it last night, and I could tell right away it was going to be far more comfortable than the stock seat. I took the bike out for a 50 mile blast today, and the seat felt great. No pain, no sliding into the tank, and the seat allows me to slide about 3/4" farther back than the stock seat, which is a more natural position for me. Of course the Corbin foam is harder than the stock foam, and the seat initially feels harder than stock, but the shape is much more supportive. All of this is no surprise to me, as I had a Corbin on my ZR-7S, and it was much, much better than the stock seat too.
The only drawbacks to the new seat as far as I'm concerned are the weight, and the way it fits the bike. I'd guess it weighs 5-7 pounds more than the stock seat, and of course that weight is carried up high on the bike. I can feel the difference in how the bike handles. Secondly, the gap between the seat and the tank is bigger than the stock gap, and it just doesn't look as well integrated as the stocker. It's not a major problem in my opinion, but it's something to be aware of if you're planning on ordering one.
All in all, I'm quite happy with it. It also gives me the option of adding a backrest for my passenger at a later date.
p.s. sorry, but no pics yet.
