We have what you need for full-on Sport Touring astride the FZ-1... our exclusive sculpted Beetle Bags and a choice of two awesome seat models. Designed to maximize the comfort and usability of your bike while providing a very cool look. Mike has been producing quality parts built for motorcyclists since 1968 and has been perfecting the art of long distance riding ever since.
Both seat models provide platforms that offer an increased area of body contact to give excellent weight dispersion and eliminate hot spots. Neutralized to curb the tendency to slide in the saddle which will greatly reduce fatigue. The shaping of the Corbin saddle relieves the centralized pressure and supports more from the sides... the way it should be. We build the saddle up with high-density Comfort Cell foam for a firm, supportive ride that lasts. Comfort Cell will support you for years and will provide a personalized fit after break in. Gunfighter model (right) provides solo comfort and fast looks while Gunfighter & Lady (below) provides comfort for two.
For two up riding, our Gunfighter & Lady model is just the ticket. This model has an ergonomically developed passenger platform that works with our adjustable backrest. Corbin's backrest system provides more vertical support and a feeling of security for your copilot. Backrests install easily with a single screw under the saddle and adjusts easily to their posture. Our #02-S model backrest shown also has backing plate options. For this model we use our standard black leather look plate, a Carbon-Fiber look or, for a little extra, we can paint one to coordinate with your factory paint scheme.
Both saddles are covered using genuine leather for a perch that breathes with your body. Our quality leather will break in along with your foam for a luxurious ride. Just make sure you care for your saddle with a quality conditioner like Corbin's Saddle Cream. On this model we've used our exclusive Carbon-Fiber leather in the seating with coordinating vinyl sides that complete the look and support the foam shape. VInyl sides will keep your saddle nice and tight and looking new longer. A coordinating colored welt adds a nice finishing touch.
Corbin's slick Beetle Bags are designed to bolt up easily on your stock chassis and provide convenient locking storage that enhances the look of your bike. Notice how the lines and details of the stock fairing have been incorporated into the design of the bags for a totally integrated look. Beetle Bags are specially designed for each motorcycle so they fit the profile of the bike like pieces of a puzzle. This carries the weight of the contents closer to the centerline of the bike and maintains perfect balance. Another benefit of our design is a smaller overall width for less wind resistance or interference when lane splitting.
For loading, we've placed the doors on top of the bags and they open forward into the wind. This assures that contents will never spill out of your bags when you open them. The forward hinge motion helps the doors to self-close in the wind if you happen to forget them. Naturally they're fully weather stripped to keep the rain out if you get caught in a storm. Door openings give plenty of room to stash away a laptop or camera bag along with your other essential gear... even your Corbin backrest when it's not in use. Just remember to load heavy items like disk locks carefully and closest to the centerline of the bike.
Beetle Bags come complete with all hardware required for immediate installation on your machine. Both bags are fully lined to protect your cargo and the doors feature adjustable locks for security. Saddlebags are constructed of our Fibertech material for durability and a perfect finish that will last for years. Combined with either our Gunfighter & Lady saddle or Gunfighter, the FZ-1 becomes an excellent touring machine! Corbin's bags even come to you pre-painted to coordinate with your stock paint.
UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY: The design and manufacture of Corbin products is so unique that Mike Corbin himself holds more than 60 United States Patents! From the process itself to new innovations like the Corbin Glovebox, you can count on highly functional and unique products that work. Corbin products are manufactured under one or more of the following US Patents: 6,848,156 B2; 6,729,516 B2; D 489,540S; 6,655,740 B1; 6,422,648 B1; 5,544,937; 5,608,957; 4,953,911; D545,073S & 6,971,714 B1.
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. We always design our basepans as flat as possible so bumps or odd shapes don't telegraph through the foam to your body. Click on the button at left to learn more...
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.
CORBIN BACKREST SYSTEM: The first and most versatile removable backrest system available for motorcycles! Corbin's backrests provide added vertical back support and long range comfort. Supported by internal hardware for a very clean look. Backrests adjust to rider's profile for a tailored fit and install or remove easily as desired. A very popular option! Click the button for additional info...
KEY LOCK INSTALLATION: This saddle model uses a new mounting system designed by Corbin to allow installation and removable with a simple key lock. Once the included brackets are installed, the saddle can be removed easily by just inserting and turning the key. Need a demo? Just click the button.
Beetle Bags are manufactured of our exclusive Fibertech™ material for durability and a clean finish. Specially formulated for Corbin, Fibertech™ gives us very tight tolerances with minimal shrinkage so each part comes out true to the original design.
We use a quality gel-coat for a nice finish that doesn't show material weave. When ordering parts in "primer gel-coat" you can expect a part ready for your painter's preparation. Most Corbin components are also available prepainted and ready for immediate installation.
Corbin Beetle Bags come fully lined with a nice, thick grey liner on the inside to protect your cargo. Sure seal weather stripping around the doors keeps out the elements. Locking doors keep contents secure.
Rider Seating: Approx. 13" wide x 14.5" long Passenger: Approx. 12" wide x 9.5" long Seat Height: 32.5" Saddlebag Capacity right: 25 liters Saddlebag Capacity left: 27 liters Overall width installed: Approx 34 inches
Take good care of your new seat and the seat will take good care of you. Designed to help your leather saddle remain weather resistant and keeps the hide supple. This will allow the leather to break in and age gracefully. Great for boots, gloves & jackets too. Simple rub-in, buff out application. *More Info*
Our most popular backrest model is the perfect blend of form and function. The size looks visually appropriate on most every seat yet is large enough to provide good, sculpted support. Works well in either the rider's or passenger's position. The standard Ovalbac is available with a range of finishing plate options to dress up the rear including chrome! *More Info*
The standard Corbin backrest for years! This model is the same size and shape as the Standard Ovalbac above, but without the hole in the middle. Provides plenty of sculpted back support without looking too big on the bike. Works in both the rider or passenger seating area on virtually all Corbin saddle models. This model also has the option of chrome studs if desired. *More Info*
Like the Standard Ovalbac show above, but with a larger contact area for added support. Works great as a passenger backrest in Dual Touring models. Because of the added width, we do not recommend this model in the front position while carrying a passenger... it may interfere with their legs. Sculpted to provide wide ergonomic support. Offers a variety of finishing plate options to customize the rear (sorry, no chrome). *More Info*
This model is specially designed to be used in the large Dual Touring seats (like HD Baggers) or in Master's Type saddles as found on the Goldwings. Sculpted for extended support both vertically and horizontally, but cut away at the bottom to provide clearance for passenger's legs. A variety of finishing plate options are available to customize the rear. *More Info*
If you want the functionality of a backrest, but also want the smallest appearance possible, this is the backrest model for you. This one is most often used as a rider's backrest in Gunfighter seat models (thus the name). Includes a variety of finishing plate options for the rear. *More Info*
All the functionality of an adjustable backrest, combined with the smallest profile possible. This model is often used as a rider's backrest in Gunfighter seat models just like the #02-G shown above. Includes genuine leather seating and color coordinating options just like our saddles *More Info*
A convenient storage solution that looks great too. Corbin's Glove Box bolts up easily to your #02-S(B) model backrest in place of the rear finishing plate to provide four liters of locking storage. Available in primer or pre-painted. Some color matches are available depending on bike make and model. Comes fully lined too! *More Info*
