    Got it for 240.00 on eBay. Used once then the owner traded the bike. It's brand new looks like it was color matched for my bike. It's much better than stock. The first long ride will let me know if its a keeper.

    Great deal Dave! I think you'll like it but post back with your thoughts after some time on it.

    I picked up a mint OEM saddle for $50 about a year ago on fleabay.  I used it as the base for my custom seat build and kept the one that came with the bike as-is so I can return things to normal if/when I ever sell.  It seems the low volume of VFRX's in the States equals deals on parts.   :031:

    I still have the stock seat in the Corbin box on a shelf along with bike parts going all the way back to the '70s,  :745:  My initial ride report on the Corbin is it works for me. Seats are very subjective to the rider. What's good for one is torture to another. I really like this Corbin. This has been the first time I could ride and think about things other than my butt. Its firmer than the OEM seat sets you back and up a bit with better under-thigh support. It releases the pressure point at the tailbone and it just works.
