Seats for 600RR...

I'm curious about upgrading my seat since I do ride alot in the hills and street. I was wanting to here what you guys have to say about "Saddlemen" seats or "Corbin". I want more comfort. And which one is more bulky? or can you even tell? So lets hear what you guys have to say. I'm going to get a seat soon, but I'd like as much info as possible since I've never ridden with either one. Thanks!



feedback please....

I have had Corbins on other bikes and loved them!

Speed is relative to space, 20 mph does not seem fast til you do it in your basement.

Corbin would be my choice pricey indeed but your bottoms will love it

I have the corbin for my 03' bought it for 200 off a member on here and I don't regret it one bit. The seat itself isn't soft or anything but just the way the seat contours to you is amazing. Also, it helps the legs too.

Just and idea, but you could just get yours redone with more padding and save yourself some money? An obvious option, but just thought I would toss it out there.

Fisher (advertiser on this forum).

recovers /modifies seats to order.

they do a lot of off road bikes and have a good rep.

way cheaper and can get what you want.

I'd go with Corbin. I don't have one, but I hear good things and they seem to be a popular choice around here too. If I had that money to spend on a seat, I'd be going with a Corbin one.

It's great, so far it's been as expected. Rode 350 miles last Sunday and felt fine when I got home. Normal days like that and I'm toast! I'll have to post pics when I get home. I got my seat bigger than you might think would be ideal, but it's not my track bike anyways ...

The one I went to is in Hoillister,Ca. about 100 miles from Fresno. I don't know where your at , but I think theres another one in Florida. You can order one and have it shipped or you can go in and have it custom to however you want (same price)!! Let me know if your interested, I can point you in the right direction to maybe save a couple bucks.

Dude, then get a custom seat!! You can get a good idea on their site, but they have way more leather samples to chose from in the shop. Where do you live? Gilroy?
