Holeshot Corbin Streetfighter Seat

Post  Pops on Wed 31 Jan 2018, 8:13 pm

Thinking of upgrading the stock seat to a Holeshot Corbin Streetfighter, would anyone in Perth have one fitted to their 1250 that I could checkout prior to placing an order?

Cheers

sunny

You know these Corbins are about an inch lower than standard, so if you're tall the seating position could be quite uncomfortable as your legs will be more of a folded position if you know what I mean.  BTW I'm 178cm and have no problems with my Corbin, however the pillion area is quiet small, so I change over to an MJM if ther missus is riding behind me.

Thanks Barry, I'm only 175cm & ride solo & really like the look of the Streetfighter bucket type seat which appears to lower you into the bike rather than being on top of it. Is that the case with how you find it?

Yes exactly.  I find the Corbin a better (solo) seat for long trips, you find you only need to stop for fuel as opposed to being sore.  I bought a AirHawk at the same time I got my Corbin and had never needed to use it so sold it in almost new condition. 

I've got the back rest as well, but with the Givi Top Box it can't be used properly.  Haven't got a photo of it on my bike but here's a couple of shots of their site, I've had Gus do his magic with the carbon wrap on the back part, makes it look much better:

Well I am assuming no one in Perth has one of these, as no one has come forward to offer up a test sitting, so therefore I have just had to bite the bullet & order one. I couldn't stand the stock seat any longer.

Have you tried talking to your local motor trimmer to see what they could do with your seat ?

Yep I did consider going down that path but was concerned that if I didn't like the trimmers mods I would be out in $ and without a stock seat. This way if it doesn't suit I can always sell the Holeshot & go back to plan A

Good point . ..............Most trimmers with any forethought though should work with you on it  because it is such an individual thing . i.e. do your foam-work & let you try it first for shape , feel etc.  before they go ahead and cover it .
