A comfortable alternative for your radically positioned sportbike! Corbin’s pilot saddle for the Firebolt adds a lot visually, but also gives you a longer comfortable riding range. We’ve designed it with a concave seating surface that better matches the contour of your body, which gives you more square inches of body contact. Look at the difference in shape between our seat and your stock seat… it’s not hard to visualize which is a better fit to your posterior.

This careful shaping also neutralizes the seating position, which means you won’t find yourself sliding towards the tank as much. Many people incorrectly attribute the discomfort in their knees to the tight ergonomics, but in reality it is more often caused by fatigue as you continually push yourself back from the tank. By eliminating the downhill slope of the stock seat, we relieve much of the stress on your knees and wrists. Again… longer riding range!

On top we use genuine leather for a totally custom look and a platform that breathes with your body. Naturally we offer you a wide range of leather styles and colors to choose from. To go along with the sportbike theme of the Firebolt, we suggest our Carbon Fiber laminated leather seating with coordinating Carbon Fiber embossed vinyl sides. Vinyl side panels help support the foam shape and keep the saddle looking sharp longer.

For you rider’s that have problems with the seat height, we’ve built this model as low as possible considering the chassis geometry. Our platform height sits right at 31.5″ which is the lowest possible seating without compromising comfort value.


The design and manufacture of Corbin products is so unique that Mike Corbin himself holds more than 60 United States Patents! From the process itself to new innovations like the Corbin Glovebox, you can count on highly functional and unique products that work. Corbin products are manufactured under one or more of the following US Patents: 6,848,156 B2; 6,729,516 B2; D 489,540S; 6,655,740 B1; 6,422,648 B1; 5,544,937; 5,608,957; 4,953,911; D545,073S & 6,971,714 B1.

Fibertech™ Basepan
A purpose built, hybrid material that provides a firm foundation to support the carefully designed ergonomics of the Corbin saddle. Provides a precision fit to every arc and contour of the machine and rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint. We always design our basepans as flat as possible so bumps or odd shapes don’t telegraph through the foam to your body.

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!

Ergonomic Shaping
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.

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.

Genuine Leather
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.

Take good care of your new seat and it will take care of you! Perfect for all your leather goods.

  • Seating: Approx. 13″ wide x 12″ long
  • Approx Height: 31.5″

Corbin’s front saddle comes ready to install on your bike with necessary brackets pre-mounted. The only thing you will need is a Torx wrench (#27) and some mild grip threadlock compound. The most common we’ve found is the blue Loctite brand.

Simply remove your stock seat by lifting the rear corners and taking out the two Torx head screws that hold the seat to the chassis. Slide it towards the rear of the bike and remove. To install the Corbin saddle, reverse this process by sliding the Corbin seat into place positioning the tongue of the saddle into the clip on the frame. Now lift up the rear corners of the seat and secure it in place with the two stock bolts through the Corbin bracket and into your sub-frame. We recommend using threadlock on these bolts to assure they will not accidentally back out and torque them to 5.5 ft/lbs unless specified differently in your owner’s manual.

Corbin saddles (with very few exceptions) include Genuine Leather Seating to provide a luxurious look and feel….   don’t let anybody tell you that vinyl is just as good! You wouldn’t buy vinyl boots would you?

Warning: Heater elements (when available) should never be installed in motorcycle seats that will be used by riders that cannot sense heat. This could create a hazardous condition.
