T120 seats

Hey All

I have put just over 1000km on my T120 Diamond - it goes in for the first service tomorrow - and my a$$ is telling me that the stock seat just wont do. I have approached Corbin - their Gunfighter & Lady seat looks like it will fit the bill - But there is some uncertainty whether the seat for the 2020 models is the same as the seat for the 2019 models.

I think so me they are. But does anyone know for certain?

Thx

G

Corbins are HARD. With the forward riding position, would your butt even reach the bucket? JB44 likes the OEM King and Queen seat.

The Triumph Comfort seat is a little better than the stock one.
It should have come as standard, but they want $300 for a comfortable seat.

Yes on the comfort seat ... it is a bit more 'comfortable' (for me) than the stocker was, but it needed some break in time. I was initially disappointed in it, but perseverence paid off ... still questionable if it was worth the steep price.

I would contact Spencer at www.greatdaytoride.com
He's performed his modification on three of my stock Triumph seats. The difference is night and day. Highly recommended.

Hi Geoff, Tubs, down under.
I bought my bike second hand and rode it home, about 3700 km's on the Triumph comfort seat. It's a trap! It's not that comfy. I turfed that and obtained an OEM King and Queen. I can highly recommend it to you. My tender areas don't get so tender anymore.
There are other threads about modifications for the stock seats, but they all seem US based. I just paid the man. Looks good IMHO and fitted straight on no muss no fuss. Rode home from the shop on it. Stupid grin on my face. Loved it then and love it now. Probably another 5k km's since. No Complaints.

Good luck with your final choice. As long as it keeps you riding and makes you smile. You'll soon forget the price.

Cheers

The Corbin is hard as stated. I got a seat from British Bits. Its comfy BUT my seating surface stretched. BB said it was me.... Just an option.

For me the so called comfort seat is worse than the original one, 300 plus euros for a naff seat. Later decided to buy the Corbin Gunfighter and Lady, better but not by much, does look good though. Not sure what seat is best, I could sit in the Kawasaki I had all day and no trouble but this one after an hour is purgatory.

Thanx all for your comments.

I had a Corbin on my Moto Guzzi T-5 - I put over 250k miles on it. When I last saw the bike the Corbin was still there and the bike had over 400k on it. That was four years ago.

My current thought is to go with the Corbin, but buffer it with my Air Hawk. The Air Hawk wont work on the stock seat - the seat is too narrow.

I have put in many 500m days on my Guzzi with the Hawk.

My question remains unanswered - is the seat design for the 2019 T120 the same as that for the 2020 T120's?
