    Finally warm enough to take a ride providing I can get my seat bolted up. Then I find the bracket doesn't line up with the seat eye holes. The whole thing is kind of off center and the round rubber feet don't seem to be placed in the correct spot. So hard to find any real quality any more.

    My Corbin fast gun lock pin was completely off.
    I returned it twice and still no fit.
    Corbin refused to deal with me after that.
    I had to fab it myself using a lock pin from another seat.
    Beautiful seat but I really hate those guys.

    That's probably what I will do. I'll just work with what I got. I hate dealing with customer service. So I'll remake the bracket and I'm thinking of removing some of the feet to reposition them. If anyone knows of a good way reattach the feet please post. I figure wood screws are probably not a good idea, maybe some kind of glue, but what?

    I don't own one but from the pictures you posted why not stick with pop rivets?

    Thanks for posting I don't feel so bad letting a few corbin seat go by and not grabbing one. Im light enough that the OEM seat is pretty good. Only one area I'd like pull some foam out.

    Well I've never used one and it didn't occur to me that I should just buy a rivet gun lol. Looks like Amazon has em for 20 bucks. I almost forgot my most important rule, for every job you do, you must buy one new tool :)

    dude don't wait on amazon they are so cheap you can grab one anywhere like Lowe's or Home depot my bet the cheapest will be harbor freight.you can take a drill and with little pressure drill the head off the ones there slowly it will leave a stub after you pull the foot off so you can measure the diameter of the pop rivet and get them at the same time. the the tool will have different ends stored right on it in case you were not aware of them and the wrench will be on the rivet gun also. hope this helps.

    Oh when you change the ends on the rivet gun squeeze the handle closed the loosen the end with the wrench spin off and spin the correct sized one on. its just a hole size to match the shank diameter of the rivet. once you spin it on with you finger its ok to relax you grip on the handle and snug her down with the wrench. Snug not need to torque it :)
    this is only written base on your statement above I am sure you could figure this out so I hope its taking as helpful not condescending.

    As the options are limited - I decided on a Corbin Solo for the R3R (my first Corbin) Quality of the materials are good, Quality of the craftsmanship is luck of the draw, I'd say mine was 95% to my expectation. Minus 5% due to backrest alignment & seat fitment requiring minor tweaking. Not criticizing or complaint, but for what they cost, one should expect 100% out of the box. End result - after a month to break-in and get used to it, I'm comfortable and satisfied overall. The wife is light as a feather and likes the stock seat - the carbon fiber I selected for the Corbin matches up well with the stock carbon vinyl. Corbin owners usually adjust and like their seats, however initial fitment seems to be a common issue. Danvitt, once you have worked out the fitment issues - give it a month and some miles - consensus suggests you'll be happy with it. Corbin Seat.jpeg

    I would agree here, I do like the seat, it just seems mine got put together about 4:30 on a Friday. I've found some other threads with some of the same issues. I'm going to do the lock pin transfer and throw away the dumb brackets which btw, has the bolts located behind the saddle bags:mad:. I may try to post a how to. While there is some good info on the forums it's difficult to find ( I even knew about it and couldn't find it).

    Appreciate the write up, while I can usually figure things out, I prefer to follow the advice of someone who's done it. Saves me a lot of cursing!

    I'll 2nd that, why reinvent the wheel. Warp9.9 you're input/feedback helps more of us than you'll ever know. I often gain the information I'm looking for sometimes letting fellow forum members know it's appreciated, but just as many times benefiting by the sharing of others w/o them individually knowing. Danvitt - one of my bumpers on the bottom of seat pan was also out of alignment (Friday afternoon assembly) on yours it may be causing some of the mis-alignment of the bracket. If you reseat the bumper(s) it may correct the mis-alignment of the bracket. What we do for our "Skunks"
