Quick question for anyone with a Corbin seat for the 04+ models. Just recieved my Corbin seat today from another forum member. Awesome seat but just concerned about one thing. Compared to the stock seat there seems to be less padding in the rear middle of the seat. I can push down on the padding with one finger push right to the seat pan no problem. If I push on the same area on the stock seat with one finger I can't even get all the way to the seat pan. So basically it seems as there is less padding. Normal or not??? Designed that way for comfort? Will I be feeling seat pan on my ass after long rides? Thanx

Even towards the rear of the seat it doesnt seem like there is less overall padding thickness than the stocker? I wanna it out bur right now its 33 degrees. Doesnt look like any nice rding weather anytime soon.

Ok...re-eval'ed the seat. One finger doesnt just sink down the seat pan that easily. You gotta push with 2+ fingers. But I can imagine with my 165lbs my ass may hit that pan no prob. But never the less seems like thin padding (could just be like that by design). Again....only toward the rear of the seat in the middle where its really noticeable.
