Corbin makes seats from the ground up so to speak. They make their seat pans, and go from there. Call them. Ask for Mike. They can be stressing to deal with, so be forewarned.
If you want your pan used I'd recommend Russell, well I would anyway. The trouble with Russell is you have to send them your seat for the pan. Either can make the seat pretty much how you want it for height and reach.
Look into Diamond/Hartco and see if they are making anyhting for them yet.

I have a Corbin seat and smuggler trunk in production and it should be shipped in two weeks. I am 6'01" and don't have a problem with the stock seat. I will chime in when it comes to let you know and will compare seat heights with a tape measure.....

Are you close to a Corbin factory...they have a ride-in service that is awesome. It takes all day but they install the raw seat your bike, you ride it around have them shape it and test ride until your happy...then they finish it and you ride home on a new seat. It's the best way to get a perfect fit...the replacement seat needed the tabs adjusted to fit my Vegas 8 Ball just right.

Corbin seat and smuggler trunk update. I have a seat and smuggler trunk on order since 7/31 from Corbin and was told 6 weeks it would take to make and ship out Its been 7 going on 8 weeks and nothing in yet. My Dealer called and was told they are having a fitment issue and have to change their tooling to have them fit correct. Corbin added two more weeks so we are to wait 10 weeks so far. New design and I guess I am happy they are taking the steps in producing the assembly where it deserves the Corbin name. Oh well sheet happens.....

Firetruck - Did you look into the "Ultimate" seat. Not sure if they make one for the vision but they are one of the most comfortable seats that I have sat on

Thumbs down Corbin seat update

Just want yall to know today marks the 10th week that I have had a seat and smuggler assembly on order from Corbin. No calls or status was done by them to my dealer to let us know WTF is going on. My dealer parts person called Friday and got no where's with them. I paid over $900.00 bucks for the two and have gotten lousy customer service. Beware if thinking of buying from Corbin you may be in for a long ride and just spinning your wheels...

Thumbs down

I dealt with Corbin on my last bike. They sent me the wrong seat a gunfighter instead of the tour and then wouldn't believe me when I told them. Some other guy got my seat. Just awful customer service, I would not buy from them again.

Default corbin seat with the worthless trunk on Vision

I sat on a Vision at our local dealer here in Concord. I was not impressed with the corbin seat. It's hard, the stock seat is a 100 times better. It looks cool, but the seat threw me several inches forward so much so I'd really have problems being comfortable shifting and braking. The little truck is nothing more than a place to put your gloves. The damn thing is expensive too. I'd definitively rethink a purchase until I sat on one and fell in love with it. Cheers. John.
