Well, I'm guessing I have one of Corbin's first Rumble seats for a SG. It shouldn't be a real challenge for Corbin, as the SG is not radically different from a RK, but the dash is different. Anyway, the seat is great except (and it's a big except to me) it falls a good 1/4" short of even reaching the tank. On their website it looks as if it actually goes a little OVER the tank. On mine, you can see the gold (cadium plated?) strap that secures the tank to the frame. You can also see how the right half of the tank is differently shaped than the left side because the Rumble seat doesn't hide that as does the stock seat.

I talked to a tech there who said I needed to put at least 500 miles on it...it should "move", though even he doubted it would move as much as 1/4". He also said not to sweat it as I have a year to get it adjusted.

Just wondering if anybody else out there has put a Rumble seat on a SG yet.

I got an e-mail from Janice at Corbin who asked for some pictures. Within 24 hours she got back to me and said to box it up for pick up (their nickel). I've heard some bad things about their customer service, but you won't hear that from me..at least not yet!

Good point. Their website shows an '06 SG in black cherry (my bike exactly) with a perfect fitting seat. I figured they had it down pat. They must have photoshopped the thing!

Figure how they can screw up seats in the first place? That tells me all I need to know about Corbin. They are supposed to be experts?

Fed Up With Corbin

Well, I've always heard that Corbin's were fine unless you needed service after the sale. I am now feeling that. They've had the seat back for a month now, after saying it would take a week or two at the most. They will not tell me what the problem is, and their customer service folks are very reluctant to answer e-mails. Last week, I asked for a refund. A customer service person, Mike Alva (or something like that), said he was sorry but Daytona Bike Week had them working over time. He said that was no excuse because customers waiting for a seat back come first...said he'd get right back to me with an explanation about what was taking so long, and when it would be resolved. That was over a week ago. I e-mailed him three days ago as well, and still no response.
