    Corbin seat wanted

    I sent my Corbin back to get more padding in the front, and it doesn't look like your seat. I guess i should have said put xxxxtra xxxxtra padding in it I guesss. I still slide in the tank.

    A ? for Corbin Seat Owners

    I had the same problem with mine. I sent it back to Corbin to have it redone, and it still pushes me into the tank. I think if it was a little wider at the front it wouldn't do this. Anyhow I have the stocker back on and my Corbin sits in the rafters of my shed.
  3. Sweet. That's why I purchased the kit, for the blue side panels.

    Cheap Seat

    Sounds like a good investment. You could spend almost $300 and get a Corbin piece of junk. Then you could argue with them on the phone, have them redo it and still have a seat that drives your balls into the gas tank.
  5. 0 weight oil is not good for gear boxes because it dosn't have the recommended shear strength. Also most car oils have so many '"slippery" additives in it to increase gas mileage, it is not really very good for wet clutches. I use synthetic oil in everything I own and use only motorcycle oil in my DRZ.

    06 sm battery

    DRZ batteries don't like to be deep cycled. I let mine go dead last year and it wouldn't come back to life, and did the same this year. Let it set too long in the fall without disconnecting the battery and it went dead. I recharged it back then and again today, but it wouldn't crank my bike over. It will get another new battery this year too.

    Sears Cycle Jack On Sale ---- $59

    I've have one of these jacks for about three years now. it lifts motorcycles, Atv's and snowmobiles. It is awesome. it is the only jack that i own that doesn't leak.

    Who really likes their Corbin Seat?

    I was unhappy with mine too and sent it back to Corbin to get extra padding and a black cover. It took a few calls and a couple of emails but they are going to redo it. I figure I have nothing to loose.

    Winter Project Questions

    I haven't tried the FCR carb mod yet. Does it make a difference. Just wondering, still have some time before spring.

    Pictures of my 2006 DRZ 400s

    Sweet bike, I have a blue one too. My signal lights are in the handguards. Did you change the base gasket yet. You have to run 93 octane , but it gives you better midrange and more decellaration braking.

    One disadvantage to a dual sport bike--FYI

    That is the way home owners insurance works. It won't cover anything that can be insured itself. For an example, if you have a 1965 Mustang that doesn't have full coverage on it and one of your trees falls on it, you are "screwed'.It would be a very bad day.

    Which seat in the best for my DRZ 400

    I did talk to Corbin today. They said they didn't know what I mean about extra padding for my seat. I asked them if they could add more and they said it would make it the same height as the stock seat. I never had a problem with the stock height nor did I tell them I had a problem with the stock height. I also told them that the blue didn't match my bike and it soaked up water like a sponge when it rained. They told me that I should have ordered it with a color that matched my bike ( I thought that when I told them I had a blue DRZ, they would already have that figured out), and not to leave it out in the rain. Anyhow they said it would be about $130 to correct this. should I put any more money in this seat or just out it on Ebay. I guess when you buy a Corbin it is like buying a Harley. You are paying for the name, not QUALITY.
  13. just got mine too, i wanted the blue side panels.

    "E" exhaust on "S" ?

    I first had only the "E" muffler on my DRZ and it was ok, but when i put the bigger head pipe on , it gained alot of bottom. I even put the stock front sprocket back on. I also have the thin cylinder gasket, the "E" intake cam, air box mods, and a jet kit. they all helped too.
