Seats, Seats, Seats

As mentioned elsewhere, seats are very much a personal fit issue. Things to consider include: The quality of the materials used, workmanship, appearance, tilt, padding thickness and height from the ground,, width through your knee area, weight, but most of all, comfort. Like others on this FJR forum, Iíve been through a lot of seats on quite a few bikes. Comfort wise, some work, some donít. Actually, the stock seat on my late model FJR is one of the most comfortable stock seats Iíve owned. Corbin: great workmanship, great appearance, usually well-formed with limited forward tilt, but the seat pan is super heavy and the foam consistency is like sitting on a rock. Firm is one thing, but hard as rock is something else entirely. That alone disqualifies Corbin for me.

Does anyone here have experience using the Saddlemen Stealth Sport Touring seats on a Gen II or III? I would love to know how they compare to the Yamaha Comfort seats.

I had a Saddleman on a previous bike. Hated it. Hard like a Corbin without the style C brings to show-and-shines.

Ridden wet. Put up hard.

Seat

What kind of seat does everyone have? I just purchased a Corbin, it states the seat will take 2k miles to break it in, I'm at 1200 now and still makes me sore! Not to pleased!

I have had a Corbin on my other bike for 20 years and it never softened up any lol. I went with a Seth Laam on the FJR and am very happy.

Laam. Love it. It was good when I got it, better after a day. Been great for a whole lot of miles.

No commercials. No dictators.

Corbins don't break in, you do. If I had another one, I'd remove the cover and put a layer of foam, re-install cover. Good seat if properly padded.

I had a set of Corbins as they come from Corbin They were too hard. Rode on a set that the owner requested Corbin's open cell foam. Major difference. Very comfortable. I currently have a set that were built with the open cell foam. They are good.
