Corbin Seats


Donating Member
Is this true. I have been talking to a new Busa buyer, and he has been told that Corbin's current seat does not fit the "03 and that Corbin is working on it. I told him he was all wet and he copied me with the following message from Corbin:

Thank you very much for your interest in our products, we've been making
seats for over 34 years and are the leading motorcycle seat manufacturer in the


We just comfirmed this today , that our seat does not fit! the 03'. We will
be re-doing this saddle to fit. I do not know how long but should be done soon.
The bags will be doubled check at this time, we are thinking they will fit.
Thanks Chad

Did Suzuki make some changes that I do not know about?
i just check out the website and they do have it posted there that their seats do not fit 03 Busas
This is interesting. I wonder what Suzuki changed and why? Does it further mean that humps and stock seats are not interchangeable?
Here is the response I received from Corbin regarding the '03 seats and bags. Read from bottom up.

We will have a seat ready probably in a few months but we are not sure
about the beetle bags. Keep looking at the new stuff on our website to see
whats new that comes out.
