Just received my new Corbin seat! I needed a few more inches between me and the ground and this did the trick. Great seat! The quality compared to the OEM seat is impressive. Her's some pics:
At first, I had a hard time lining up the seat bolts and thought they didn't fit, but taking the seat off and aligning the metal clip in front first, it worked out with some pressure on the seat to align the seat bolts. Yes, there is some space between the seat and tank, but it seems to work for lack of a better word. Again, the quality of this seat is above and beyond the OEM seat.Grat's on the new seat. Just curious, did you get the seat to engage the little metal clip on the tank? I had the same seat and I vaguely remember it being a little tricky to put on my 08... Just wondering because I remember the front of the seat pretty much touching the tank (like the stocker) and there seems to be more space on yours. Might just be the camera angle though. They are a very well made seat, mine just didn't agree with my body shape so I ended up selling it.
I decided against lowering the links due to what it does to the changing the angle of lean with the kick stand (so I am told). I'm surprised at the angle, close to vertical that the current kick stand is. I'd appreciate a bit more lean.I have been considering purchasing a lowered corbin seat and removing the lowering links and putting the OEM ones back on. If it really is two inches lower with the corbin seat I think I might actually make the purchase. The lowering links also lower the klr by 2 inches I think.
We had a discussion, well more of a "I'm the boss of you" discussion the boys came into line, on how to divide the work. I told them this isn't a bicycle,and they were ok. Now Mr. Pucker who has to bare the weight is concerned, however I'm losing weight! 26lbs. on the year.looks like its gunna be bunching the boys together.
You sir are right! but it lined up right with a little muscle. It's a good tight fit. The weather here in Nebraska and my schedule is prohibiting me from riding the KLR this week to get a good feel for this seat! Gotta pay taxes and licensing tomorrow, ugh...I have the same seat, and I love it. I can ride all day in total comfort.
It is hard to get the seat bolts to line up. You have to push it forward really hard.
The last thing on my mind when riding my KLR is my butt..
