Corbin Seat

Ordered a Corbin and spent hours trying to get it to fit on the V. Very irritating ; however, after really studying it, I noticed they must have put the front bracket on upside down from the factory. Took off the bracket, flipped it over and presto.........the seat latched on! Just wanted to post this in case anyone else has this issue. All is well now!

they must have made yours on the same day as mine.
Mine arrived a couple of weeks ago.took 15 min to realise the front bracket was on the wrong way.

I would like to think that for what they charge for thier product they should have some kinda quality control or fitment test just to make sure it will work.

love the seat.just shaking my head for having to fix it right out of the box.

I bought mine used, but the bracket was on backwards too!

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

I ordered from my local Kawasaki dealer, was $425 shipped. Was alittle cheaper than direct from Corbin website. It took about 2 weeks for delivery.

I bought a Corbin and sold it about a month later. It was like riding on a brick.
