Best seat for Brutale
 
Hello Members:
I own a 06 Brutale 910 R and has the stock seat. Rode home with my new ride last month, over 550 miles in one day. Seat was Ok, does anyone have experience with the Corbin seat ? I do like the suede covered look, would you keep stock seat and recover with suede or go for a new Corbin ? Thanks

I've been thinking about getting a new seat since my stock one has started to discolor some. I want something more comfy, too, so I was thinking about a Corbin. When I went to order they had a crazy number of color and material choices. I really have a hard time envisioning what would look best. Really, I like the color of the stock seat really well (before it started getting spots).

I would want suede because there's always the chance it might get rained on when I drive the bike to work. And I'm not crazy about how it looks, either. I do like some of the fancy stitching and multi-colored seats.

Does anyone have a color combo they prefer over stock?

Find Spencer Seats.....he modifies your seat with different foams and shaping, retaining the original cover and appearance. Nothing but good reviews and fairly inexpensive. Just google it. His web site is something like greatdayforaride or something.

Yeah, I thought about getting a Spencer seat done. I get the impression from people's reviews that he makes the seat better but not as much better as a Corbin would be. I might be wrong but that's my read on it. Comfort is pretty important for me because I like to be able to go for 300-400 miles without too much discomfort.

I'd considered getting this done too Spry.,as a few miles in this seat can leave you 'walking like John Wayne' when you get off the bike:laughing:.
However someone on here a little while ago suggested wearing 'gel inserted cycle shorts' under your leathers as it helps immensely.

When the weather is more suitable for riding I'm sure gonna try it!...and they're not very expensive either. (if 'comfort' is your priority)
Just a thought?

Good shout Brian, going to try that as I am hoping to do a tour in France this year and not sure my backside will endure the daily riding that well!

I just took my own advice Dave and ordered a pair of these...http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/..._ya_os_product....I'll let you know how I get on:)
Reading the recommendations/reviews the opinion is order the 'next size up' as the fitting is tight. I'm a 32'' waist...so I ordered the 'large'

What color is your 1078? The black bikes came with a seat that matched the paint. I think it looks better than black would. Of course, some other color combo might look even better but I'm not a person who can pick good colors.

Original black 1078:

Hi,

Maybe this one is worth a try?

I used this Luimoto Seat Cover

and thought it would be a good idea to build in this Gold Gel Pad also.

I am happy with the effect of having a seat now which is a bit firmer than OEM but even more comfortable.
