Tried to put a new Corbin Close Solo Seat on my 2006 Road King Classic tonight. Front of the saddle is hitting the dash and the rear still has 1/2" left to go to fit over the bolts. The bike has a wiring harness coming out under the dashboard that dosen't seem to be helping. Tried bending the front tang on the saddle down but I can't figure how this thing is ever going to fit. Any help appreciated. Thanks, Dan:huh:

I've got an 05 RK with the Corbin Classic, but had similiar problems. Loosen up the dash and it'll go together a little easier.

Still no go.

Thanks guys but I loosened the dash and moved it all the way foreward. Doesn't hit the dash now but still 1/2 " from going on. Wrestled with it for 2 hours tonight, quit before I got out out the BMFH. Not sure what to do next. Thanks, Dan:nope:

I was told by Corbin that the 06 RK changed slightly and that Corbin has not come out with the 06 seat yet. I spoke to several at Corbin and all confirmed it. I am waiting a couple more weeks and will contact them again.

Seat For sale

Thanks, I guess I'll go with plan B. Anyone need a Corbin Close Solo for a 2005 Road King?

Maybe stating the obvious, but the rear tang is adjustable under the seat. You did try loosening the screws back there and moving the tang right?

tlr is correct. I spoke to Corbin and the 06 Road Kings need a new basepan molded for the seat because of the new way they have the wiring harness routed inside plastic covers. I spoke to them a few times starting in October and I am suprised it is taking them this long to mold the new seat basepan.
