So Corbin has THREE seat choices for your KLR... are you getting a little confused? This may help clear things up a little bit: If you are looking to get the lowest seat possible to make your reach to the ground easier, THIS is the seat model for you! Our Dual Platform model gives seating lower than the stock seat and both other Corbin seat models.
We got a bunch of great feedback from our new pals over at Happy-Trail.com for a new saddle design to fit the KLR. Better still, they brought their new `08 down to the shop so we could check it out in person and get the skinny first hand. After some discussion, Mike Corbin and the Wizard's set about engineering this latest offering...
This stepped, dual platform design allowed us to really lower the front position of the saddle. This equates to better ground reach and, naturally, a lower center of gravity. A nice side effect of the stepped seating is that you get a nice bit of back support out of it too. Notice how we've taken this shape and sculpted it to conform to the shape of your body. This provides more square inches of body support and eliminates hot spots.
In the nose area we've drastically reduced the height of the seat. In fact, we literally can't make the nose of the seat any lower than it already is. But don't worry about comfort... although we've cut it down in front, there's still plenty of support and cushion under your rear and thighs while in the riding position. As with all Corbin saddles, we incorporate our Comfort Cell foam material to supply firm comfort for long days on the road (or trail as the case may be).
Shown in the images above, we use the "Grabber" material, which helps you stay planted on the bike. This combination of materials works well for the KLR's "go anywhere" environment as well as being extremely durable and visually perfect for any bike color.
If you're a taller rider or just don't have any problem with ground reach, you may want to check out our DISHED and FLAT seat models for the KLR instead.
Saddle installs much like your stock seat and bolts directly to the Kawasaki chassis. The only difference is the simple relocation of a vent hose on the fuel tank (complete instructions included).

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
GENUINE LEATHER: We use leather in all panels of the seat that contact your body. This provides a luxurious ride that breathes with your body. Leather will also break in along with the foam shape to support the personalized fit. Available in a wide range of textures and styles to suit your taste. For more information about leather seating just click away.

Saddle installs like stock with two bolts into stock locations on your chassis. Mounting hardware is included and preinstalled on saddle.
Installation of the Corbin saddle on some models requires relocating the fuel tank vent tube to the inside location of the tank lip. This is a simple procedure and when complete your new saddle will mount just like stock. For more information, refer to the install instructions above. (figure 3).
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*
