Man this seat is hard. Does it ever soften? It does sit me higher and farther back in the saddle. I like to sit close to the tank. It is a little wider, so does give my arse plenty of space to sit on. I have only riden with it twice so far. If I can't get used to it, it will be up for sale.

It's supposed to break in to your shape after about 2500 miles. Keep riding if you are that patient. It is harder but gives a larger supporting surface.

I have a Corbin on my VFR...have about 11k miles on that seat. It doesn't get softer but it will become a bit more 'formed' to you. That should hopefully make it more comfortable for you.

Got any pics?  How does if feel in the twisties?  Any difficulties shifting from side to side.....that's why I like the stock seat.  Yeah it really sucks for the street but works well for me on the track.

Rode a 03 gixxer 1k and that seat was super soft compared to the CBRs.  It felt really nice, but almost most too soft.  I didn't push my friends new 1k so I really don't know if the super soft seat would hurt you shifting around?  I had a corbin on my old 6r and really liked the firm saddle feel but it was a little harder to get off the seat.

i think eveyone is surprised when they first sit on a corbin....it's definately not the 'garden of eden' i had expected. btw my girlfriend loves the corbin passenger saddle
