I decided to put the custom Corbin Grom seat on my daughter's grom just to see what is needed to make it fit correctly. Plus I wanted to see what would be needed for fine tune adjustments so as to have a perfect fit.

As far as comfort I give the Corbin seat 5 stars

I should have gave them the correct fitting for the inseam so they could have made the Grom seat the correct height for my riding but since it is my daughter's Grom the seat was a little taller.

The seat held you forward just a little.

I might give my daughter this seat and order another Corbin seat of different color and design.

Here is the light grey snake skin seat on her Red Grom




Now to get the seat to fit correctly I had to loosen the bracket on the frame by moving the rear seat bracket to get the locking hole in place.

On the seat I did two things, I first had to slot the two both holes on the locking unit for the seat. I removed the plate by undoing the two bolts and I used a dermal to cut out about 1/32-1/8 slot so the plate would move forward a little to fit.

The second thing I did was the seat locking unit/plate has two bolts with two washers and to make my seat fit perfect I had to remove both bolts and washers and plate and re-assemble the plate by putting the washers first then the plate locking latch unit than the bolts, this gave the plate the height it needed to latch on the Grom locking assembly unit.

Grom key points to the plate I'm talking about.

My $319 seat is going to fit PERFECTLY from Corbin or I will be sending it back immediately. This is ridiculous that you have to modify a $300 seat. C'mon people!

It's not modified, it sat perfect on the Grom, it is just I'm very picky on how the mechanical parts should work for me since I worked in the Aero-space industry, I like my stuff sort of Mil-spec.

Don't panic, believe me you'll love your seat once you get it installed. Taking my stock Grom pan down to Corbin and have them make me a second seat which I should be able to save some money since they do not have to make the pan but just glue some nice foam and add the leather to the pan.

Sure the seat should fit well, but if when I arrives, it does not, the logical solution is to look at the effort and time involved in fixing it yourself, as opposed to send it back, and making the best choice based on the fastest, best fix. Corbin is a good company, their high quality products and reputation speak for itself.

Some people just WANT to be mad at the world. I have seen guys that are more interested in complaining, and feeling " big " by bashing a good company and trying to force them into doing their will, rather than actually solving problems... If someone cant be happy with Corbin, they wont be happy with anything...
