Help Fitting Corbin Seat for ST 1050

1348 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  GrahamG
Decided to splash out a little for Christmas and bought a Corbin seat for my Sprint ST 1050. Nice seat, but I'm blowed if I can get it completely down on the locking mechanism.

Has anyone actually bought and fitted a Corbin seat for a 1050 and could possibly offer me a few pointers?

There is obviously something snagging somewhere, but I'm stumped as to where it could be.

Thanks in advance.

Be careful when applying brute force! Seldom the best way for something to be MADE to fit. When I received Corbin's first effort for my 05 Sprint, the seat pan actually sat on top of the bodywork at the rear of the seat. Brute force would have damaged my bike. The second effort was better but still did not fit correctly. They finally admitted that they would have to re-design the seat pan. My suggestion would be that if the seat does not fit correctly, return it to Corbin. Be prepared for a nightmare dealing with their customer service team though.
