I'm quite close to ordering a new saddle. Had decided on a Sargent. Just for kicks I visited the Corbin site and see they offer a seat I've never seen before. Other than their Canyon. The link calls it Front/Rear. It looks pretty cool. Have I been out of it and this one has been around for a while? Anyone try this seat yet?

I bought th new Corbin front seat with Smuggler. Both pieces look good ... the seat is especially nice. Well shaped, well made and fits perfectly. Subject to a long ride (it's winter here in Alberta, Canada) I'd say it's a big improvement over the stock seat which I didn't like.

I had a Corbin for my '92 FJ and loved it. Of course I'll give the stock seet a try when I get my '06 but I like the look of the new Corbin with the smuggler.

So a few questions for you.

How much space is in the smuggler?
How does it look in person?

Corbin seat from Yamaha

Warning! If you have an 06 FJR do not order the seat that Yamaha has in it's catalog or website as it doesn't fit! I Picked mine up today, for a mere $630.00 only to find it won't fit! I immediately called Corbin and they informed me that the seat for the 06 is under developement and won't be released until the end of June or July. It would be nice if Yamaha had done their homework!

so Question:

Does the Corbin seat on the FJR 01 - 05 models fit the 06 FJR?
And the answer is.................NO!!!!

The 2006 seat has different latching points. The change was due to the adjustability of the seat height.

Experience

No Nomad, Experience is what you get when you DON'T read the posting the Yamaha dealer's manual still lists the seat as an 06 option.

But has anyone tried the modular seat on the pre-2006 models? Not the Canyon but the modular unit. I'm really interested in feedback, especially for distance riding. Don't need the seat to be perfect, just better than stock. Subjectively, how much better is this seat than stock and how does it compare to the Sargent?

I see in the modular you can choose different color leather seating material. I was thinking about going with navy blue to compliment the blue of my baby.
