I wasn't that I didn't like the seat, it was comfy on my bum, BUT I am really tall at 6'4" and the Corbin just held me too far forward to be comfy. I guess I sit a little farther back on the seat than the size they designed the seat for. It pulled my legs up past the tank cut outs, and made the reach a little too short. Oddly it was totally uncomfortable.

Anyway, I don't have any complaints about the seat itself, I just thought it would be god to warn others who were tall in the saddle, that it might not fit. Definitely, if you are over 6'2" try to sit on one before you buy.

Since then I have decided that I like the flatness of the stock seat. It allows me to wiggle around and change positions easily on long rides. I think if I get another it will be the Daytona, or I might build onto the stocker and add an inch of memory foam.
There is a higher version available with the Corbin seat.

RE: Corbin Gunfighter seat
Well, it isn't so much the height, as where it holds my butt on the seat. The little divot made for the driver was about 2" - 3" too close to the bars for me. Too bad, it was comfortable, just too close. I am liking the idea of something like this from K&H, so I can move around..

Hey guys. Does anyone else have the problem of their man bits going numb with the stock seat?

RE: Corbin Gunfighter seat
I've had the Gunfighter a little over a year. The passenger part holds a soft tailbag. Still trying to convince myself it was the right seat decision for me. I've added an AirHawk pad, with numerous adjustments of air and now I have added a 1" foam which has helped some. I also have a sheepskin cover. If I knew the Corbin was going to be so hard, I would have bought something else. The concept seems to be a wide, flat seat but my butt isn't flat. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the best, I rate the Corbin a 3 and the Honda stock seat a 1.

2014 Standard, lots of mods. Other rides: '08 Goldwing, '96 BMW R1100RT, '95 BMW K75.

I bought one for my 2013 and found it a 100% improvement over the stock seat and with the backrest felt better hauling a passenger.

RE: Corbin Gunfighter seat
I was looking at the standard gunfighter and can someone with the seat explain how the back is. it looks like it has the cafe racer style cowl (?) thing behind the main riders seat... is that a seat as well, so my rare passenger could sit on that part or would that not be a good thing and i should toss the stock seat back on for when i have a passenger?

I've had the single seat gunfighter for a year now, the back part is leather, semi-cushioned, but it is not flat, and slopes to the rear. It is not a seat that a second rider would want to sit on for more than a couple of miles.
I kept my original seat in the off chance that I should need to take on a passenger at sometime.
I really like the seat, it's a 100% improvement over the original for me, but I'm thinking about taking it to a local upholstery place and see if they can add a half inch of memory foam, or more cushion of some sort.
