Under 300 pounds... 12 inches of suspension travel... 450cc thumper motor... yeah, this sounds like a good ole time! Husky has long been known for making awesome off road equipment and now their dirt bikes are no stranger to the street with multiple models DOT legal. As a perfect partner, Corbin has long been known for bringing comfort to the streetbike and that's what we've done for your TE 450.
We've built a wide, contoured seating platform in Dual Sport style to give you good mobility in the saddle combined with excellent support. Nearly three inches of added width provides excellent long range support. Inside the saddle, our exclusive Comfort Cell foam provides a firm supportive ride that lasts. This exclusive foam material allows us to build a lower profile and still give you just the right amount of resilience. Firm enough to keep your body supported, but soft enough to cushion the ride.
Designed "ergonomically" to fit the shape of your body. This concave shaping provides more square inches of body contact which creates better weight dispersion and helps to eliminate hot spots. Our rigid Fibertech basepan is designed to support the complex shaping of the foam and keep the carefully designed ergonomics intact. From this view you can also see how much wider our seating area is... this will help eliminate the centralized pressure created by the oem unit.
Our unique materials and high density foam allow us to lower the seating platform without sacrificing comfort. Not only does this help ground reach, but lowers your center of gravity for better handling. You can see how we've taken the seat height down approximately one inch from the stock height. We've also kept a smooth transition up the tank to allow you to slide your body forward and eliminated the latch hardware at the rear of the seat (where it could hit your tailbone).
On the outside we use only the finest materials available for unique looks and durability. The Grabber material shown on this page has been discontinued, so in it's place we recommend Carbon-Fiber texture for grip and custom looks. This gives a very custom look that coordinates to the bike color. We offer a wide range of colors and styles to choose from in your saddle and your choice is included at no extra charge. Be sure to specify when ordering.
Installation is simple with the new integrated Corbin key lock. We've eliminated the D-Ring fastener at the rear where it could contact your body and integrated a lock buried deep in the saddle nearer the tank. With the one time installation of a latch bracket onto the bike's subframe, your new seat will install and remove easily with a simple key.

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
Seating Dimensions: 9" wide x 27" long

Notes: Installation is simple and accomplished by installing the provided latch bracket onto your bike's chassis. Once the bracket is installed, the saddle will mount with a tongue in the front and a key operated latch at the rear.
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*
