Our uniquely styled Classic Solo looks excellent on your Royal Star while providing an extraordinary amount of rider comfort. Notice how the sculpting of Corbin's seating platform conforms to the shape of your body for support and more square inches of body contact. This is one of the secrets of long range comfort and is a staple of Corbin design. For added back support it accepts an optional rider's backrest that provides a total of over 15 inches of vertical support. Since we know you want to bring a copilot along for the ride, the Corbin wizards have also crafted a very nice passenger pillion seat that matches the vintage theme of the solo.
Our backrest installs easily into hardware concealed inside the saddle for a very clean look. In order to fit a wide range of riders, it is fully angle adjustable too. Just install the backrest into the saddle, lock it in place with a single setscrew and adjust the backrest angle to suit. For your passenger, we've designed the Corbin pillion pad to work along with the Yamaha sissy bar system. Naturally we make a nice contoured pad to complete the look and provide excellent passenger comfort (#4WM41).
For your passenger's traveling enjoyment, we've sculpted a very nice pillion seat. Although not a wide as the passenger area on our Dual Touring saddle, the Corbin pillion still provides excellent comfort and support. It is built with our exclusive high-density Comfort Cell foam to provide firm support while we sculpt a nice low platform that looks clean and sporty on your Royal Star. Naturally, it comes decorated in your choice of leather styles to coordinate with your Corbin solo saddle. Installation is simple with a tongue in the front and a single screw in the rear.
Notice how the shaping of the Classic Solo and Pillion are designed to emulate the contour of your body. This gives excellent support for longer range comfort. Our neutralized seating also helps to curb sliding in the saddle which greatly reduces rider fatigue. Inside, the saddle is built up with our exclusive Comfort CellŪ foam for a firm, supportive ride that lasts. Corbin saddles feel firm when you first ride on them, but this firmness is what supports your body and maintains the correct shape. Over time, Comfort CellŪ will break in and provide a personalized fit to your body for even greater comfort.
Corbin's Ovalbac series backrests come covered to match your saddle, but also offer the option of custom finishing plates on the rear. On this page we've used our chrome back plate to coordinate with the look of the bike. Notice how well in integrates visually with the Royal Star and matches up to the other nice chrome tidbits. Backrests come standard with an ABS leather look backing plate but you can choose an aluminum look, carbon-fiber look or even a paint-able model at no added charge. For a little extra we offer pre-painted gloss black or the chromed steel model shown.
Saddles & backrests include genuine leather seating panels in your choice of colors and styles. Leather provides a luxurious perch that breathes with your body enhancing comfort value. Leather will also break in along with the foam shape in support of the personalized fit. In the side panels we use a coordinating vinyl material to keep the saddle looking sharp longer and support the foam shape. We also include the option of chrome studs at no additional charge (be sure to specify when ordering). Leather seating will perform for years and add value to your Corbin investment.
Over time, your leather saddle will develop its own unique character just like your leather jacket or favorite pair of boots. Be sure to care for it properly with a quality conditioner like Corbin's Saddle Cream to keep the hide supple and weather resistant. Beware of products that contain petroleum or kerosene as this could permanently damage the leather hide.

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

Classic Solo seating: 15" wide x 15.5" long Rider back support w/ #02-S: 15" Passenger Pillion: 11" wide x 11" long
Installation: Corbin's Solo and Pillion saddles are simple to install and fit perfectly to your Royal Star. To install, you will need to remove the rear seat bracket from the center of your rear fender as shown here. This takes just three bolts.
Installation of the passenger pillion seat is simple and uses a single screw in the front instead of the three bolts that originally held the bracket. We supply a longer bolt and plastic washer. Locate the washer under the seat tab, insert the provided screw and tighten to 8 ft lbs.
In the rear of the pillion, you can reuse the stock bolt or order one of our nice Chromed Billet thumbscrews. This provides a very clean installation and tool free!
Solo saddle installs like stock with a tab in the rear of the saddle that engages a bracket on your chassis. Just slide the saddle into place (rear first) and lower the nose onto the chassis. Double check to assure the rear tab is engaged by attempting to lift the rear of the seat up. Once this is secure, reinstall the stock seat bolts near the nose of the saddle and tighten to 10 ft lbs. Now get out there and have a nice ride!
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*
Makes seat installation and removal a tool-free snap! Machined billet thumbscrew is polished and chromed for a very clean look. Available in the following sizes:
SAE: 1/4" x 20 or 1/4" x 28 Metric: m5 x .8, m6 x 1.0 or m8 x 1.25 *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*
