seat change from 07 to 08?

So ya'll are my best bet for an answer to this one:

There's a used corbin saddle for sale in the classifieds forum having been used previously on an '07 - Will it fit my '08?

No one at Corbin seems to work on a Monday?! and
Kawasaki's cust svc agent "thinks so..."

Thanks.

Yup it will fit.

2008 DL650 VStrom Yellow and Black
Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

What brand of seat is that? Not stock from an 08 surely. It looks like an easy chair. I also like that box. What's that?

The seat is a Russell Day Long saddle, and the box is a Pelican Case that I mounted on the back of the bike.. I think the case is a 1610, but I'm currently 300 miles from my bike, so I'll verify that when I get back home.

Here's a link to Russell..

And to Pelican..

Thanks. I actually think the stock saddle on my 07 is pretty comfortable, but I haven't taken it on any long trips yet. That seat looks amazing.

The seat that came on my 02' was terrible.. I bought the bike slightly used, and during the first ride I figured out that the stock seat had to go.. I used a Travelcade Gel seat from Dual Star for years, and was very happy with it, but I got the opprotunity to buy the Russell and I couldn't pass on it.. It's my second Russell seat, and the comfort they give is wonderful!!
