How was the fitment? Did you have to fiddle, fit a washer, etc? Had enough seat time to share first impressions?

It fit better than some stock GRiSO seats I have had, no fiddling.

Had enough seat time to share first impressions?

Only ridden around town but I like it very much. I asked for a two inch rise so it is less of a bucket. I am tall @6'4" but my natural position with stock bars and dropped pegs has me an inch or two in front of the rise in the back. Room to scoot forward and a bit back to vary the position.

When the weather warms we will see how my usual six-hour rides South to VA and North to ME feel.

One thing you will notice right off is that the seat is firm and will need break in. I’ve only
put a few hundred miles on mine so far. The other very noticeable difference is that it sits you up higher (at least till it’s fully broken in I suppose). If you have trouble reaching the ground, this would be a problem for you. I had to put a single washer under the fitting that connects to the bike so it more easily locks.

I have the same seat - had it for about a year now.
when I first put it on the bike it locked onto the retaining pin and would not come off without quite a bit of screwing around with the key and the seat itself. it has since broken in and goes on and off the bike easily.
the only issue I have with it is the way it broke in. between my height and my skinny ass, the seat broke in on the center part where my butt sits but not so much on the edge where the back of my thighs hit.
this actually started cutting into my legs on extended rides and created quite a bit of discomfort.
After multiple attempts to get this area on the seat to break in, I gave up and purchased an air hawk pad.
I  have to say, the combination of the Airhawk and the Corbin seat is awesome
hopefully you won't have this issue but if you do, I recommend the Airhawk as a fix.

attempts to break in the pressure points...

Thanks for the photo Chris. You can see how much the two-inch rise on my seat changed the profile.

Thanks for the additional feedback! I have a Corbin on my Victory, with several thousand miles on it. It still feels almost like a rock when first sitting on it, but the pan must be much better because it does not cause discomfort even on long rides. That said, not as cushy as the Mustang version that I have.

Chris- do you have stock pegs still, or lowered? Edit: Revisiting the pic, looks stock.
Surprised your attempts to introduce some work-shaping didn't help, seems like a good thought!
Did you happen to convey that to Corbin? I haven't heard high marks for interacting with the in-person, but maybe an email would be treated as a datapoint especially if their market share build-- seems like we have a little rash of them here, and maybe they actually did tweak the initial mounting.
Definitely can see the difference in the seat cups.

I have 1" lowered pegs. I believe they are the Knight design pegs. they were a direct swap and a good fit
didn't bother with Corbin -
when I received the seat, I had an issue with how they pleated and riveted the seat cover around the nose of the seat - I contacted them and did not get a satisfactory response so I figure there is no point trying again

Consider a stop at the Moto Grappa when this way. cheers

I might take a spin up North for that! \
Assuming it actually gets here someday....

Been meaning to come down your way. I had a buddy in Winchester for many years. He has relocated to Onancock VA.

Had the same pressure point(thigh) issue as Chris and sold it off. Went stock w/airhawk.
(should have went with a Rich's in Kingston...)

Only had to trim the tool door to fit. It felt a bit heavier than the stock seat. They do look good though

A buddy of mine used an Airhawk, I took the bike for a spin once and couldn't stand it. It felt like I had a load of crap in my pants.

(Not that I would know what that actually feels like either... geek )

the airhawk's take some adjusting to get it just right. it's all down to your weight and how your ass is shaped. it'll feel like you shit your pants or are floating on a water bed until it's set right. it almost has to be flat.
once it's set up correctly, it's really good

Agreed. Just a little too much air and it feels like you're trying to ride a beach ball.
