I am looking to buy a Corbin Seat for my 2001 Zr-7S. I would greatly prefer it to come with the back rest. However, i will accept if it does not. Please let me know how much you want for it as im trying to pay a wedding and have a set price in my mind.
Thanks

No it would not fit, two completely different motorcycles. Armydude Corbin seats are a premium. I have one (not for sale) and 3 original stock seats. The ZR7 and the ZR7S were last made for U.S. sale in 2003. If you find one go for it.

i have looked up the seat on the Corbin website, but unfortunately i was hoping to get it a little cheaper with being used. However it doesnt seem like that will be a possibility since everyone i have seen reviews with the seat absolutely love it.

I have 3, a Gunfighter Solo & a Gunfighter and Lady for my ZRx's and the factory saddles and a Gunfighter and Lady I got on Ebay for my ZR7S in 2010. They do show up on occasion. I still wish they made a Gunfighter Solo for my ZR7S, I'd buy one in a minute. They are never "pillow soft" but the contour is great for comfort. I rode my 05' ZRX from Cheney Kansas to the Seattle Metro area 1900 miles in 2 days. My driveway to Ogden Utah Best Western Motel on day 1 955 miles, Ogden UT to Seattle day 2. The only mods to that motorcycle were Throttle Meister (heavy) cruise control, ProGrip model 699 Superbike grips and a Corbin saddle. I was pooped but not sore. I have paid full price for a Corbin twice and 65% once they are worth the cost.

Dagnabit.....

I too covet a Corbin seat for my ZR-7. I have one on my 1993 Kawasaki GTR1000 and 1991 Honda CBR1000F and I love them.

Must have a Corbin shaped bum or something... :D

I see a few have been sold in the last few years via the site, but not many. Consider me second in line for any that come up for sale please.

Cheers, SB

My bike came with the Corbin seat. It is a "stiff" cushion but, I have not sat on a stock one. Granted my Corbin is probably 10yrs old or so, so I'd assume it has gotten harder than new over the years. How much stiffer is it than stock LP? Do you sit closer or further on a Corbin than stock?

My Corbin seats were firm from the factory, it's the proper contour that makes them so comfortable IMHO. You can always get a foam replacement at Corbin. They have one of the best "service after the sale" reputations in the aftermarket. My stock ZRX seats (both of them) were "cushy" enough but the contour was such that after 45 minutes hot spots and discomfort began, an hour and pain. The Corbin solved that. I haven't sat on a Sargent's seat though I've heard good from them too. I am sure its the contour.

I had a Corbin for many years on my ZR 7S. It was stiff right off the bat and never seemed to loosen or stiffen up. It puts you about an inch lower and an inch farther back than the stock seat. My V-Strom came with both the stock saddle and the Corbin. I've tried both. Even though the Corbin is real stiff, it's still better than the stock. And the stock V-Strom seat is half-decent.

Thanks for the info Pete. I have longer legs so seems the Corbin "moving me back" a bit is the best it's going to get. I even slotted the seat mount to move it a bit further back, and ended up having to move my tank back slightly also, to compensate for the gap it created.
