Corbin Passenger Backrest

Post by More Throttle » Thu Mar 19, 2020 2:34 pm



I have a Corbin Saddle on my 08 GL1800. My wife complains that the armrests on the passenger seat are uncomfortable :roll: She is not very tall and they hold her arms too high and cause pain in her shoulders and neck. :cry: I want to know if anyone would consider a swap or some sort of mutually agreeable exchange for the OEM passenger backrest (heated) for my Corbin Passenger Backrest (also heated)? The images don't show the red thread used for the top stitching but it does have that feature. Anyone interested can PM me.

Or try to find someone with the standard Corbin backrest without the arm rests to trade with.

I don't remember if the Corbin seat is lower at the backrest area than the stock seat, so there could be fitment issues.

You might put this in the For sale/Wanted section rather than here.

Thanks I will try the For Sale Section next. Corbin has offered to sell me the other version of their saddle w/o the extended armrests. :roll:

You should probably buy the new standard from them and sell yours.
Also if you are on FB there are goldwing groups for selling.
