Corbin's new pilot saddle for Kawasaki's ZX-10R motorcycle is designed to provide you with long range sport touring comfort on your liter bike. The saddle has been engineered to provide you with a more comfortable riding position, while maintaining the smooth sleek lines of your ZX-10R.
This saddle is built up in the front to reduce the tendency to slide forward. The slight bucket shape of the saddle disperses your body weight over a greater area and helps to eliminate any centralized pressure on your body. Both the built up front and the bucket shape work together to take away a lot of the strain from your legs and knees; allowing you to ride longer.
As with all Corbin saddles this pilot saddle for the Kawasaki ZX-10R is built using our exclusive Comfort Cell® Foam. The Comfort Cell® Foam is a dense foam that is firm at first. However, this firmness is what allows you to ride further and more comfortable. After a while the foam will break-in and begin to form to your body and riding posture, giving you a truly custom fit an feel on your bike.
As you can see Corbin wants this saddle to not only feel good on you, but we also want it to look good on the bike. So, Corbin's patented molding and manufacturing process provides a precision fit to the tank and tail section of the bike. Furthermore, the saddle is designed to ride on rubber bumpers to protect the bike's paint, while preserving the clean lines of the ZX-10R.
The genuine leather seating provides excellent comfort and will break in along with the foam of the seat for a truly personalized fit. In fact we let you choose the type of leather for your seat an also the color of the optional welt. Also the traditional Corbin tag has been replaced with a contrasting logo embroidered right into the side panel of the seat.

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!

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.

Seating: Approx. 12" wide x 12.5" long Approx. seat height: 33"
You're new Corbin seat mounts just like the stock seat. To remove you're stock front seat. Remove the rear seat by inserting the key in the key slot on the left side of the tail panel. Once the rear seat has been removed, two allen bolts holding down the center tail body panel will be exposed. Remove this panel to expose the bolt securing the rear tab of the front seat. Remove, but keep the bolt securing the rear tab of the front seat.
The stock seat is ready to be removed: Lift the seat back and upward so the front tongue of the seat can slip out.
The Corbin seat has the same features as the stock seat. It has the front tongue at the nose of the seat and the mounting tab bracket at the rear. To begin slip the seat into place while hooking the front tongue into the receptacle where the stock seat was and lining up the rear tab with the threaded hole in the frame. Now go ahead and reinstall the center body panel and the rear seat back on.
The use of a thread locking product, such as Loctite, should be used when re-installing this rear stock bolt.
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*
