Thanks...This is the second time I have an issue with THAT dash light!!!! I may need two check valves(diodes?) there...

The first was while installing a buzzer for reminding me to turn off the signals....I had to install two of them....hum!!!

Dumb question time

Would it be ok to run a 140/80-17 instead of the stock 130/80-17 rear tire? Would the 140/80-17 throw the speedo off much?

Shouldn't be a prob. I know people using 140 deserts in the rear. Why should it affect the speedo? Its just a bit wider than the 130, diameter is the same and anyway, the speedo gets its signal from the frontwheel.

Cheers, Andy

Opinons on Corbin seat?

After doing a 1500 mile trip on my slightly modified stock seat I realized I need something more. so... what is the general consensus on Corbin seats for longer trips. Would love to hear from someone who actually rides with one.

From what I have read so far, general consensus is that there are two types of Corbin users- ones are hating it and anothers- loving it. To find out in which team you are, you have to try that seat.

Corbins are a great improvement over stock. I bought mine new (around 400 cdn, if I recall) and have been very pleased with it. It takes the pressure off your tailbone, and shifts your weight back instead of pushing you down towards the tank. It leaves a little less sliding room, though- it's almost like a bucket, instead of the stock plank. If you're patient, good deals can be had on used ones on ebay.

Mine came with a Corbin on it and it has been great. My other bikes had all been offroad ones (DRZ, WR) and compared to those boards anything would have been better, but I've been done some rides where I've sat for virtually a full tank of gas and been able to walk fine when I got off the bike. Most long days for me involve some dirt so there is standing though. Next week I've got a bunch of street riding in TN, NC and SC so I'll be able to give a better report when I get back.

well Corbin is about the only game for comfort seats aside from sending off my seat pan and waiting for months and months for a renazco built seat. The corbin has been ordered and I can't wait.

You won't regret it. Keep in mind, though, that the corbin is going to seem very hard compared to the stocker when you first try it. Don't worry- you'll get used to it quickly.
