Just did a whole bunch of reading on this yesterday, because I found my Corbin Gunfighter to be a bit low for my 6'1" height.took a grinder to my smuggler and reshaped it so it's not as wide then had a local lady do a new cover. The smuggler sets lower than stock by a little bit.
I have a Corbin on bird and love it last time I looked was around $1300 Australian dollars that was a while agoIt's a good thought - I called Russell and asked them about it. Upon their request, I sent them pictures of me sitting on the Russell seat, as well as the stock seat, to give them an idea of what I want the riding position to be vs what it is now. After looking at them, they concluded that they could bring it down and forward a little (~$150), but that would not get me to where I wanted. The guy it was designed for is 6-3, 265 lb; I am 5-10, 160 lb. It's a huge gap to bridge. To get the position I want, I would have to do a fresh build (~$650). I am not averse to working on my flexibility and strength to get to the point where the ~$150 solution works, but I have no guarantee that I will ever get there. So I am also considering the option of either selling it and buying a Corbin (which from the responses above should be much better suited to the riding position I'd like) or trading it for one.
Yes but worth it. The Corbin stock is just too wide.Just did a whole bunch of reading on this yesterday, because I found my Corbin Gunfighter to be a bit low for my 6'1" height.
Generally, lower than OEM by about 1" according to other riders. I have no idea why they do that, unless they assume that everybody wants to be a 'lowrider'.
Grinder. New Cover. Plus your time! Ouch! After paying 'Mucho Dinero' for the seat in the first place.
