Custom Pilot saddle for Gregg's Customs GSXR Tail Conversion
If you're a fan of sportbikes, you've probably already heard of Gregg's Customs out of Northern California (the city of Campbell to be exact). His custom built streetbikes like the Hellion and the GC-1000 are 100% Top Notch, asphalt shredders of the highest quality. With that said, we were proud to be selected as the seat supplier for his new Hayabusa - GSXR tail conversion kit.
The kit allows for a tail section from a 2007-2008 GSXR 1000 to bolt up to the 2nd Generation Hayabusa chassis. Includes a billet aluminum subframe with battery tray and all necessary hardware for installation. The kit allows the installation of the factory Suzuki tailsection bracket and all plastics as found on the above mentioned bike. Once installed the kit looks and works like factory while making the Hayabusa look fantastic. To top it all off there is that really nice Corbin seat of course!
Designed to provide longer riding range and sport touring support. Engineered to provide the perfect blend of comfort and the usual Corbin sleek styling with a range of custom options to create a unique look. Naturally, the fit and finish are perfected and pure Corbin.
The sculpted riding position disperses body weight across a greater area so you enjoy mile after mile of comfort. We greatly reduce fatigue by building the saddle up with our high density Comfort CellŪ foam into a position that reduces the tendency to slide forward. This takes a great deal of strain away from your legs and knees and allows you to ride longer. Additionally, the convex shaping of the seating platform is more ergonomically correct so it eliminates centralized pressure on your body.
Corbin's patented molding and manufacturing process provides a precision fit to the tank and tail section while saddle rides on rubber bumpers to protect the bike's paint. Leather seating panels are included in a range of styles and colors. Immediately after releasing this saddle, we redesigned the cover pattern to appear as you see HERE. This gives you some great color options for a fresh, sporty look. This animation shows a variety of leather styles in the seating with Carbonium trim and Asphalt side panels. The traditional Corbin tag has been replaced with a contrasting logo embroidered right in the side panel with a winged GC logo on the opposite side.
This saddle model is included in the Gregg's Customs Hayabusa - GSXR tail section conversion kit, therefore it cannot be ordered from this webpage. For complete kit information, check out the Gregg's Customs website HERE. Or you can give them a call at: (408) 370-4770.

COMFORT CELL® FOAM: The heart of the Corbin saddle! Our exclusive, purpose built foam material, called Comfort Cell, was created to provide a firm, resilient ride that doesn't break down. This means it will support you for long days on the road. Over time, Comfort Cell will break in to provide a personalized fit to your posture and even greater comfort! For the complete story just click the button.
ERGONOMIC SHAPING: A major part of the design criteria of the Corbin saddle is the Ergonomic shape. This means the saddle's foam shape is designed to emulate the curves of the human body. This provides more square inches of body contact and helps to eliminate hot spots. This shaping also neutralizes the seating platform to help curb sliding in the saddle which reduces fatigue. In a nutshell... more comfort for a longer ride! Just click the button at left for an animation that shows how it works.
PATENTED MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY: Always an innovator, Mike Corbin invented Integrated Molding technology which is now the process by which all Corbin saddles are made. This process allows extremely tight tolerances and creates a chemical bond between the foam and base material. To see what this is all about, just click the button for More Info
GENUINE LEATHER: We use leather in all panels of the seat that contact your body. This provides a luxurious ride that breathes with your body. Leather will also break in along with the foam shape to support the personalized fit. Available in a wide range of textures and styles to suit your taste. For more information about leather seating just click away.
FIBERTECH™ BASEPAN: A purpose built, hybrid material that provides a firm foundation to support the carefully designed ergonomics of the Corbin saddle. Provides a precision fit to every arc and contour of the machine and rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint. Click on the button at left to learn more...
