Mike Corbin's 60th United States Patent! As with many Corbin products, the Glovebox design is so unique that it was awarded US patent #D545,073. Just one of the many innovative designs that enhance your riding experience with well thought out form AND function.
Corbin's new Glove Box is designed to bolt up to your existing Corbin backrest and give you a handy place to store some goodies. Fits backrest models: #02-S, #02-SB and #297B.
Naturally, it looks nice when installed and is designed for simple, bolt-on mounting. Comes complete with everything you need with two keys and either unfinished or prepainted Gloss Black (some OEM colors are also available). Inside there's a generous four liters of storage capacity for your essential travel items.
So how much is four liters of storage? Well, we've put in: a couple maps, a pair of gloves, two bottles of water, sunglasses, keys and a cell phone... with room to spare! Door opening is seven inches wide by five inches tall to give you an idea of what you can slip in there. Although we haven't broken one off in testing, we recommend a weight limit of five pounds to be safe.
Constructed of ABS plastic and hand finished to assure a quality finish throughout. On the inside, it comes fully lined to protect your cargo and even has a nice weather stripping around the door opening. Stainless steel hinge and mounting hardware assures your glove box will survive the harsh environment your bike is subjected to. Door lock is adjustable to keep your goodies secure.
So where can you use it? As you can see, anywhere you put a Corbin backrest! On the bottom side of the box, we've put a slightly flattened area to allow for clearance around seats and bodywork. There are a few exceptions to where the glove box will fit and these are noted on the specific seat models. Good on cruisers and sport bikes alike! Especially useful on bikes like the Honda VFR where there is no under seat storage available.
Corbin's glove box looks nice from any angle. Naturally it takes its shape form the backrests that it was designed to fit. Little bits of detail add to the looks of the box like the ribs along the trailing edge on each side and the molded area around the lock on the lid. Typical Corbin styling! Comes unfinished or pre-painted gloss black or in any paint color we currently offer for our Beetle Bags, Fairings or Chin Spoilers.
Installation is very simple and you can swap this box onto your existing backrest or get a dedicated backrest for it. All you need to do is remove your rear finishing plate by taking out the two screws in the back. Now replace the finishing plate with the Glove Box and secure with the two provided screws and large diameter washers. A little Loctite or similar thread lock material would be a good idea here. Always be sure your backrest safety screw is installed too!
UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY: The design and manufacture of Corbin products is so unique that Mike Corbin himself holds more than 60 United States Patents! From the process itself to new innovations like the Corbin Glovebox, you can count on highly functional and unique products that work. Corbin products are manufactured under one or more of the following US Patents: 6,848,156 B2; 6,729,516 B2; D 489,540S; 6,655,740 B1; 6,422,648 B1; 5,544,937; 5,608,957; 4,953,911; D545,073S & 6,971,714 B1.
FIBERTECH™ BASEPAN: A purpose built, hybrid material that provides a firm foundation to support the carefully designed ergonomics of the Corbin saddle. Provides a precision fit to every arc and contour of the machine and rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint. We always design our basepans as flat as possible so bumps or odd shapes don't telegraph through the foam to your body. Click on the button at left to learn more...
COMFORT CELL® FOAM: The heart of the Corbin saddle! Our exclusive, purpose built foam material, called Comfort Cell, was created to provide a firm, resilient ride that doesn't break down. This means it will support you for long days on the road. Over time, Comfort Cell will break in to provide a personalized fit to your posture and even greater comfort! For the complete story just click the button.
ERGONOMIC SHAPING: A major part of the design criteria of the Corbin saddle is the Ergonomic shape. This means the saddle's foam shape is designed to emulate the curves of the human body. This provides more square inches of body contact and helps to eliminate hot spots. This shaping also neutralizes the seating platform to help curb sliding in the saddle which reduces fatigue. In a nutshell... more comfort for a longer ride! Just click the button at left for an animation that shows how it works.
PATENTED MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY: Always an innovator, Mike Corbin invented Integrated Molding technology which is now the process by which all Corbin saddles are made. This process allows extremely tight tolerances and creates a chemical bond between the foam and base material. To see what this is all about, just click the button for More Info
Storage Capacity: 4 liters
The Glovebox is designed to bolt directly to the following Corbin model backrests: Standard Ovalbac® #02-S and #02-SB Standard Corbin #297-B.
Will not mount to backrests that have decorative studs in the cover.
Corbin Glove Box is available unfinished (black ABS) or painted in any color currently offered for our other accessories like saddlebags and fairings. Please check our General Info section for complete paint color availability. Due to the cost of materials, color match to Honda Illusion paint colors costs a little extra.
About Color Matching: Please be forewarned that the paint may not be a perfect match for the color on your motorcycle. Over the years we've determined there are differences in color from bike to bike especially once the paint has started to fade (reds and silvers are notorious for this). Due to this, we have established paint colors that are close for the widest range of bikes we could test with.
Corbin saddles (with very few exceptions) include Genuine Leather Seating to provide a luxurious look and feel.... don't let anybody tell you that vinyl is just as good! You wouldn't buy vinyl boots would you?
WARNING: Heater elements (when available) should never be installed in motorcycle seats that will be used by riders that cannot sense heat. This could create a hazardous condition.
Take good care of your new seat and the seat will take good care of you. Designed to help your leather saddle remain weather resistant and keeps the hide supple. This will allow the leather to break in and age gracefully. Great for boots, gloves & jackets too. Simple rub-in, buff out application. *More Info*
