i had a corbin on my gixxer and it didn't help much. the seat was too narrow and corbin didn't have much to work with because the bike is so narrow.

corbin on my ex's sv650 was nice.

corbin on my superhawk is ok. an improvement but not worth the money.

the rebuild route is the next step for me. i'm gonna try to find a stock rc51 seat and i'll diy.

I have the stocker and a Sargent that came with the bike. I really didnt feel the need to replace the stocker, as it only started to get tiresome after 200+ miles or so, and even then it was minimal.

Then again, I'm a diehard supermoto guy, so my rear is overly tolerant of bad seats, haha.

I did put the sargent on this weekend just for kicks, and it's really pretty darn nice. It does sit you up a little bit more though. It wouldnt be much of an issue if you arent really tall. I'm 6'1 though, and it kinda pushed me up a little bit more. Maybe some more seat time will help it settle in a bit more.

The aftermarket seats like sargent etc looks like they are better to sit on when you are driving stright. But to me it seems that the seat might be a problem if you want to push the bike through corners....? Does anybody have any experience with this?
