Comfort and style together in one package is what made the Corbin name famous worldwide. Delivering a quality product constructed of the finest materials available has made Corbin the number one manufacturer of motorcycle saddles for over fifty years! Our Gunfighter saddle for the SR/F is a perfect example of this combination of form and function.
Up front the seating area has been ergonomically designed to distribute body weight over a greater area. This provides longer-range support and eliminates hot spots. Neutralized seating platform helps to hold your body in place and curbs sliding in the saddle. This also helps to relieve rider fatigue by taking pressure off your wrists and knees.
Our exclusive Comfort Cell foam material on the inside provides a firm, resilient ride that supports your body indefinitely. Over time, Comfort Cell will break in and adapt to provide a personalized fit to your body.
For a solo look, the Gunfighter tail section is shaped to emulate the lines of the bodywork with a fastback tail section. On the inside, the tail is padded and upholstered to provide for short trip passenger capability. Although the shaping of the tail is designed primarily for looks, the Comfort Cell foam still provides a reasonable passenger perch.
Concave shaping of the front seating area gives an unprecedented amount of body support. Notice how it curves up at the back to provide support to your lower back. Towards the front of the bucket we design the saddle narrower to allow for ground reach. Smaller riders may prefer to slide forward and out of the bucket at stop signs for best ground reach.
This model features a light weight ABS basepan integrated into our patented manufacturing process. This allows a perfect fit to the lines of the bodywork and tank. This rigid baseplate provides the saddle with a firm foundation to support the carefully designed ergonomics of the foam. The entire seat rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint job and mounts to your bike like stock.
On the outside we use genuine leather seating for a luxurious ride that breathes with your body. A full complement of color and material options are included at no extra charge. Shown here with Black Carbon-Fiber seating, Matte Black sides, Black stitching, Carbon-Fiber tail section and Light Silver logo.
For those chilly morning rides we offer an option of heated rider seating. We incorporate a heater unit under the leather seating and a switch on the left side of the saddle (so you can turn it on without removing your hand from the throttle). Just flip the switch and the seat will warm up and maintain temperature automatically. Corbin's heater comes completely pre installed in the saddle and you need only integrate the included pigtail.
Corbin's saddle mounts like stock and includes latch pin on the saddle so it's ready for immediate installation.

Comfort Cell® Foam
The heart of the Corbin saddle! Our exclusive, purpose built foam material, called Comfort Cell, was created to provide a firm, resilient ride that doesn't break down. This means it will support you for long days on the road. Over time, Comfort Cell will break in to provide a personalized fit to your posture and even greater comfort!
A major part of the design criteria of the Corbin saddle is the Ergonomic shape. This means the saddle's foam shape is designed to emulate the curves of the human body. This provides more square inches of body contact and helps to eliminate hot spots. This shaping also neutralizes the seating platform to help curb sliding in the saddle which reduces fatigue. In a nutshell... more comfort for a longer ride! Just click the button at left for an animation that shows how it works.
Patented Manufacturing Technology
Always an innovator, Mike Corbin invented Integrated Molding technology which is now the process by which all Corbin saddles are made. This process allows extremely tight tolerances and creates a chemical bond between the foam and base material. To see what this is all about, just click the button for More Info
We use leather in all panels of the seat that contact your body. This provides a luxurious ride that breathes with your body. Leather will also break in along with the foam shape to support the personalized fit. Available in a wide range of textures and styles to suit your taste. For more information about leather seating just click away.
One of the first things you'll notice about your new Corbin saddle is how stocky it feels. Our high density foam and rigid Fibertech base material add some heft to the seat, but it's worth it in the long run for sure! Here's why:
Corbin's basepan material is extremely stiff and therefore supplies the necessary rigid foundation to support the carefully designed ergonomics of the saddle. A thinner or more flexible base (ie nylon) would allow the saddle to sag in the middle which changes the foam shape impacting comfort value. We always design our basepans as flat as possible since odd shapes or bumps can telegraph through the foam and create pressure points.
This rigid base also supplies the mechanics for built in hardware like our removable backrest system. Backrest support hardware is buried inside the Fibertech to assure it remains stable and supports the weight of rider or passenger. Remember, the Corbin backrest system is like a complete integrated sissy bar that adjusts! Pretty amazing when you think about it.
Specifically designed for Corbin, this hybrid material has almost no shrinkage as it cures. Fibertech combined with our patented manufacturing process provides a precision fit to all areas of the bike and offers minimal manufacturing tolerance. The entire basepan only contacts your bike through rubber bumpers to protect your paint.
Better weight distribution
"Ergonomic" is the applied science ofequipment design intended to reduce operator fatigue and discomfort. Also calledbiotechnology, human engineering or human factors engineering. What it means isthat the product was designed to work with the human body. This is a key factorin how a Corbin saddle functions.
Notice how our saddles are sculpted and shapedto fit the human body? That's what we're talking about. This gives more squareinches of body contact which disperses your weight over a greater area. Sinceit matches the curve of your body, it also eliminates hot spots and centralizedpressure on your spine.
In order to manufacture seats this way, itrequires special materials and manufacturing processes. Over the years we'veexperimented with many different materials, but in the end wound up developingour own. The process itself, calledIntegrated Molding, was also inventedby Mike Corbin and was awarded a United States patent.
Naturally we're always on the lookout for newmaterials and processes. What you find today is the product of nearly fourdecades of relentless product development. Because of this, Corbin Saddles arecommonly considered the finest motorcycle seat in the world.
Exclusive Materials and a Patented Process
One of the main reasons Corbin saddles have beenso popular over the years is because the technology under the saddle's cover isin constant development. New models and improved features require constantdiligence on the part of the factory to assure each product lives up to theoriginal design. Integrated molding was the missing link between designconcepts and actual production.
In a nutshell we've taken the components of thesaddle and combined (integrated) the molds into one unit. Brackets and backresthardware is placed in the mold where the basepan is created around it. The molditself dictates the shape of the base and placement of the hardware whilecreating a clean rounded edge in the exact same shape every time.
This same mold is then used to cast ourinfinite-ratio Comfort Cell foam into the ergonomic shape common to Corbinseats. This process takes place on a tight schedule while the Fibertech basematerial is still at a curing stage. This creates a chemical bond between baseand foam that helps keep the crafted shape intact under heavy use.
Integrated Molding has created a process soconsistant it gave our R&D team the freedom to design for a more precisionfit. Extremely tight tolerances allow the seat shape to fit every arc and curveof your motorcycle like never before. It also enabled us to introduce a host ofnew features like Chrome V-Rails, fold down backrest hardware, heater insertsand our new Ovalbac model backrests.
Genuine Leather Seating
For a luxurious ride
With few exceptions (seats for off-road bikes),we include genuine leather seating panels in all Corbin saddles. A naturalproduct, leather provides a luxurious ride by allowing your body to breathewhile in contact with the seat. Leather is also extremely durable so it willlast in the harsh environment your bike is subjected to.
Genuine leather will also adapt with the foamshape to support the personalized fit after break in. This is why we recommendusing vinyl instead of leather in the SIDE areas of your seat. Vinyl will"spring back" instead of stretching, so it will support the foamshape and stay looking new.
We have a wide range of specialty leathers &vinyls available for covering your Corbin saddle, but beware the Kid in a Candy Store syndrome. Most people that create wild seat coverdesigns end up unhappy with them over time and admit they went crazy justbecause they could. So even though we let you choose any materials you want foryour seat, doesn't mean you SHOULD... sometimes less is more.
Lastly, be sure to care for your leatherproperly with a quality conditioner like Corbin's Saddle Cream. This will helpit to resist the elements and stay water resistant and looking sharp longer.Over time you can expect your saddle to break in and develop its own uniquecharacter, just like your leather jacket or gloves.
Paint Color Matching
Color is one of the most emotional issues faced in therefinish & paint business. Everyone has an opinion about color. Unfortunatelyeveryone sees color slightly differently and this can be the cause of discussion. The biggest problem is thatof color variants. Cars and motorcycles are no longer produced in fixed colors,but come from the manufacturing plants in a range of shades of a particularcolor.
Manufacturers & OEMs
At the OEMplants, there are a multitude of reasons why variants may occur. These reasonsinclude the paint system being used, the line speed, line trials, lineproblems, plant differences and variations in film builds. No matter how hardOEM manufacturers try to duplicate paint results from unit to unit in any givencolor, there will always be paintvariations! No matter how much time and money OEM paint companies spend on makingsure their colors are consistent from batch to batch in both OEM paint and refinishformulas, there will always be paint variations.
Variations inthe production of paint can also contribute to variations in a particular colorcode. As research and technology allow, new chemistries and resins may beintroduced into a particular product line at any given time. This may allow fora slight color shift when a plant empties a container of existing material andorders more from the supplier.
Also during the manufacturing process, thepotential exists for slight differences in the final product. The manufacturingprocess requires a lot of equipment, settings, human control, and other factorsand any slight change in any one of those components may contribute to theslight deviation. The final paint product may be well within the specificationsfor that product but be slightly different from a previous batch.
PPG (Corbin'smain paint supplier) monitors color consistency directly at the OEM plantswhenever possible and also out in the "real world" of repair centers.This is done through their Parts program by receiving documentation fromdistributors, customers and internal sales people.
This constant feedback of color informationallows PPG to identify colors that consistently do not match the OEM standard.They then create avariation (redder,greener, lighter, darker, etc.) of the Prime formula that will provide a bettermatch in some cases than the prime formula.
When a paint technician is looking up a colorusing any PPG Color Information System they check to see if a Variant formulaexists. This can save a great deal of time and provide better consistency.Corbin uses the PPG TouchMix computer to provide the best possible match toyour OEM paint. However, given variances at the OEM level, we cannot guaranteea perfect match at all times.
Another Corbin Invention
Corbin backrests are designed to install and remove easily so you can use a single backrest transferred front to back as needed or get two for full time use. Just slide the backrest shaft into the hardware contained inside the saddle and lock it in place with a single safety screw.
Backrests adjust to rider profile easily without removing the rest from the seat. In some saddles we incorporate special hardware in the front position that allows the backrest to fold down to ease mounting the bike. This hardware also allows you to position the backrest fore and aft to suit your stature.
Of course, all backrests are made to coordinate with your Corbin saddle in your choice of materials. Ovalbac models also have finishing plate options for the rear to add a bit more flair. Need a little storage? Check out Corbin's new Glovebox that bolts directly up to your backrest in place of the finishing plate and adds four liters of storage!

For those chilly mornings
As an option on many of Corbin's Touring Class saddles, electric heat provides a very nice way to raise your riding enjoyment when the temperature drops. On these models, the heaters and required controller come preinstalled on the saddle. We include a wiring pigtail that integrates with your bike's fusebox or directly to the battery and provides a quick disconnect for saddle removal.
Operation of the heater(s) is handled by a switch built into the left side of the saddle where you can reach it without removing your hand from the throttle. Justflip the switch and start enjoying the warmth! Heater will run for one hour then shut itself off automatically. If you're still riding, just flip the switch off and back on to reset. Remember, heated seats require a stitch pattern in the seating area to conceal the heater elements.
