Corbins are made to fit one persons butt, any change of 10lbs weight requires a change to the padding!
Sure .... they will build a seat for you if you want to wait and if you want custom seat materials / colors ...
... but most of the seats they sell are built and use colors that match factory seats and back rests and are aimed at a rider in the area of 5'10" and 180 pounds. It's when you deviate very far from that that a custom fitted seat is suggested for maximum comfort (like a fellow 6'4" @ 240 might like a different fit as would the guy 5'6" @ 155). Don't know if that means a naked or dressed or what.

Maybe Im spoiled cause custom seat to me means-- custom fitted to your posterior.
My only reference being a found on Craigslist seat lady, who works from home and fixed up the Shadow seat from zero to hero.

I live in my own little world, but its ok they like me here~

I am pretty sure according to CycleMax site I have the 27" standard size Slipstreamer.

So I go to F4 page, and the ordering options are Standard, +2 and +4. I see so many conflicting posts about what constitutes "standard height" and what measurement that is. I wouldn't mind staying about the same height I currently have.

Windshield in the completely down position.


Windshield size below:

I have the standard shield on my 97 1500. I am 6'4" tall and when riding my head in above the shield. When getting up around 60 or 70 mph. The wind will catch my helmet and whip it around a bit. ( I am use to this, done it for years) if I were to change I might try a +2 but anything taller than 2" above what I have now, I think would not work visually for me.
I guess you know you can adjust up and down a few inches right?
Best of luck.
