Corbin Smuggler seat and Copperdawg Screen.
« on: July 11, 2017, 09:04:32 pm »
Just curious to hear from anyone that has the Corbin Smuggler seat setup. How is the comfort? Would you purchase again? Do you have the passenger pillion and how does your passenger find it?

I am looking to buy the Smuggler seat setup and any straight up info would be appreciated.

I purchased the Copperdawg windscreen as well and I am waiting patiently (not really) for it to be made and shipped. So excited. I am in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. It gets very hot here and super dry. That windscreen will work wonders here and I can switch back in the cooler months easily. The time it takes to change screens is 5-10 minutes. Hardly a bother at all. Takes the wife 20 times that to put her helmet and gloves on. >:(

I am a big fan of the Corbin Smuggler set up. I'm a solo rider so can't say much about the P-pad.  Seat was hard as a rock though so had it redone by Seth Laam.  Much more comfortable now.

The smuggler was the first thing i did to my c14..it carrys everything i can think of for my local ride, i don't use the bags often..in fact you can put a gallon of milk in it (not closed of course) and it secures it very well...mine came with the seat set up and i have only used the pillion once, but it works..I always ride solo and it is not in my way when i am getting on or off the bike...the driver seat looks great, but is truly a pain in the a**...I am going to send mine out finally to have it redone on the inside and i think that will work then, but now it only marginally better then the ball crushing oem seat....
Pardon my spelling, auto correct is my worst enama

ChisD that seat looks good.

I have talked to a few folks with the Corbin and everyone loves the Smuggler but honestly feel the Corbin seats are hard. It would be a huge expense to buy one and have it redone seeing how its like $157 Canadian dollars to every American one right now. Ok maybe not that bad but it adds up.  :))

I have the Copperdawg screen on my 2011 and luuuuv it.  No buffeting, less pressure on the wrists and way more air through the Rev-It jacket.  If you get tired of the wind, up goes the screen and re-directs it to about shoulder height.  I got mine with the smoke screen and it makes the bike look faster when it's sitting still.  You will not be disappointed.

Downhill that is the same setup I ordered. Not in the blistering fast Silver like yours of course, but in the slower black metallic. ;)

Love my Smuggler, but hate the seat. But I like the Smuggler so much, I put up with it. Guess I could have the seat reworked, but I am a tightwad.

Love the smuggler so much that I don't use my great Laam seat, ever.  I fixed the marginal Corbin seat by using an Airhawk.  This setup works great.  I occasionally use a sheepskin on top of the airhawk as well, makes it even better.  Bottom line for me was that the trunk looks great, and works even better, so I needed to make the seat work.  I may have Seth redo it someday, but probably not.
