Click or Tap to Activate Item
Yamaha created an awesome adventure machine and naturally Corbin has perfected the ergonomics. Our saddle offers a more sculpted seating platform that conforms to the shape of your body for better support and greater square inches of body contact. Of course we build them up with our Comfort Cell foam for firm support that lasts all day and supports your body.
For maximum versatility we've designed the Corbin components to interchange with the Yamaha pieces and even offer a setup with electric seat heaters built in. Heater unit of the Corbin saddle is self contained within the seat and preinstalled for simple installation. Front saddle mounts just like stock and installs in either the high or low position using the OEM system.
Notice how the shaping is designed to emulate the shape of your body. This gives excellent support for longer range. Our neutralized seating helps to curb sliding in the saddle which greatly reduces rider fatigue. Naturally we include genuine leather seating for a perch that breathes with your body and enhances comfort even further. Saddle comes standard with natural grain black leather seating with Tuck & Roll stitch pattern and black Asphalt vinyl side panels. We can also provide it with high traction Asphalt seating so it matches the stock components, but then you wouldn't have the benefit of leather seating. Color coordinated welts provide a nice custom touch to your ride.
Corbin's rear seat offers the same ergonomic improvement for your passenger's comfort and also includes the option of a removable passenger backrest. Corbin's backrests are available in several styles to meet your needs for support and visuals. All models install easily with a single bolt into the saddle and adjust to provide a tailored fit to your passenger's profile.
Corbin backrests are finished on the rear with a vacuum formed ABS plate that is available in a leather like texture, carbon-fiber or black paintable. #297-SB and #02-SB models can also work with our glovebox option to quickly add four liters of locking storage to your bike. Glovebox installs on the backrest with just two bolts and comes fully lined to protect your cargo. Available in raw ABS or prepainted gloss black.
Thesaddles shown here include our electric seat heaters built in and you can see the switch conveniently located under your left leg. This allows you to reach it while riding without removing your hand from the throttle. There are separate switches for rider or passenger heat in this design. Just flip the switch and the saddle will heat up and maintain temperature automatically. Installation is simple with an included pigtail that wires to your bike's fusebox.
Corbin's leather seating will perform well for many years and adapt with the foam shape during break in for a personalized fit. Over time it will develop its own unique character just like your leather jacket. Just be sure to care for it properly with a quality conditioner like Corbin's Saddle Cream. Your new saddle will be your favorite investment for many years to come!

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.

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.

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*
Our most popular backrest model is the perfect blend of form and function. The size looks visually appropriate on most every seat yet is large enough to provide good, sculpted support. Works well in either the rider's or passenger's position. The standard Ovalbac is available with a range of finishing plate options to dress up the rear including chrome! *More Info*
The standard Corbin backrest for years! This model is the same size and shape as the Standard Ovalbac above, but without the hole in the middle. Provides plenty of sculpted back support without looking too big on the bike. Works in both the rider or passenger seating area on virtually all Corbin saddle models. This model also has the option of chrome studs if desired. *More Info*
Like the Standard Ovalbac show above, but with a larger contact area for added support. Works great as a passenger backrest in Dual Touring models. Because of the added width, we do not recommend this model in the front position while carrying a passenger... it may interfere with their legs. Sculpted to provide wide ergonomic support. Offers a variety of finishing plate options to customize the rear (sorry, no chrome). *More Info*
This model is specially designed to be used in the large Dual Touring seats (like HD Baggers) or in Master's Type saddles as found on the Goldwings. Sculpted for extended support both vertically and horizontally, but cut away at the bottom to provide clearance for passenger's legs. A variety of finishing plate options are available to customize the rear. *More Info*
If you want the functionality of a backrest, but also want the smallest appearance possible, this is the backrest model for you. This one is most often used as a rider's backrest in Gunfighter seat models (thus the name). Includes a variety of finishing plate options for the rear. *More Info*
All the functionality of an adjustable backrest, combined with the smallest profile possible. This model is often used as a rider's backrest in Gunfighter seat models just like the #02-G shown above. Includes genuine leather seating and color coordinating options just like our saddles *More Info*
A convenient storage solution that looks great too. Corbin's Glove Box bolts up easily to your #02-S(B) model backrest in place of the rear finishing plate to provide four liters of locking storage. Available in primer or pre-painted. Some color matches are available depending on bike make and model. Comes fully lined too! *More Info*
