Anyone put on a Corbin seat yet, I have one coming that should be here this week. I have had a few seats from Corbin and love a harder seat and the one they made for the Fury is designed like the old Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 Classic seat that was THE most comfortable seat ever made IMHO. I rode back from KY 600 miles in one day on the stocker and it was OK but it will be nice to have a better seat.

Got mine about 3 weeks ago and love it. It is the rocker and this is my bike on the link. I mostly ride w/out the backrest but on the long trips it kicks ass!! I am posting more pics of this hopefully this week!! Don't let the looks fool you, it is not as big as it looks, but you sit in it and not on it. After 3 hours, my ass still has feelings opposed to the orignal Honda seat which had me numb in 1-1/2 hours. Corbin Motorcycle Seats & Accessories | Honda Fury | 800-538-7035

I was hoping it wasn't as high in the back ect. as it looked on the website, you can't beat a Corbin for distance riding. :)

$429 for the solo seat, $250 for the passenger, $230 for the backrest. Whew start saving your pennies. I will be taking my stock seat to an upholstry shop I know and have them do a custom embroidered one and add an inch of foam for $140 total.

Yep just as I figured, the passenger seat looks like crap. I just hope my solo looks decent on the bike but I'm sceptical. Corbin needs someone to design their seats who understands the lines of a bike as well as other companies. It is a tough job to make it look good and still be comfortable, but it is possible.

I thought about reworking mine but I don't have a stock seat if I F it up. :D I have done some with good results on my Vulcans I've had.

Hey, I have emailed corbin and talked with them about a seat I'd like for mine. If you go on the corbin site and look at the seats for the 09 harley ROCKER C, they have a seat called the widowmaker. There going to look into making that seat for our bike, if they do thats the route I will take becuase its very comortable, and also I think keeps the OLD school chopper lines, and is good for a passenger and has a nice back on it for putting ur luggage for long trips. Just thought i'd put it out there that I have talked with them about making this seat for our fury's

Damn, those seats really mess up the lines of the bike!!!! That passenger seat looks horrible. I sent my Honda red flame seats out to Mean city cycles to get gel and memory foam put in them and re-covered with the stock cover. It was a whole lot cheaper to go that route.

Corbin seat -Too expensive, old school styling

That seat looks like it came right off the "hoveround power chair" IMHO

That's what I was thinking of doing Chopped; how's the seat feel with the foam/gel inserts? Did they go in without distorting the flame seat design? What'd it cost you all said and done?

I should get them back by Thursday. I know a few other guys did this and said they could now ride all day with no discomfort. Should look the same as the stock seat, just more comfortable. Ended up being $150 for the rider seat and $75 for the passenger seat. Did the memory foam/gel insert in the rider seat and memory foam in the passenger seat. Don't know if the rear seat will make a big difference, but trying to make it more comfortable will make the woman happy.

Cool Beans!! :cool: Please post how you like it all after you get them back. Like the idea better than complete seat replacement *if* it really makes a difference riding.

Now if L&M just manages to come through with an air shock for the fury, and with a large biker's friend to lean back into, could become an Easy Rider bike in the truest sense of the word :)

And oh yah if maybe Billet would work a little of his billet magic and conjure us up a set of beautiful risers to get those dang grips up and back a couple/few inches ... :)

Just got my seats back. As soon as I finished putting them on it started to rain hard with lots of lightning. As soon as I can get out on it, I will post up. The seat looks the same, but is significantly heavier now. I held it in one hand and my stock seat in the other. Must be the Gel insert. When I sat on it, it seemed the same but only riding the bike will show the difference.

Yah, raining here also; been a crappy july riding-weather-wise, at least in the Dayton Ohio area. You may have to ride it for awhile to really tell how it's gonna work out; looking forward to your impressions of it :cool:
