  1. Im not sure what the seat part of the seat is. My wife used a paper towel to dry her seat once. It took weeks to get the paper out...
  2. I deal with freight every day, including FedEx and UPS. While it is entirely possible Corbin dropped the ball I would not be surprised if FedEx is the one who did, especially with a residential pickup. It really doesn't matter as you're the one stuck waiting.
  3. Hate to hear that. Hopefully, it is a one-off issue. At least you got to see it. Did you get the "Asphalt" covered armrests? Those match the rubber trim around the rear of the trunk almost exactly. Hope you were are pleased as we are with it.
  4. The OEM and the Corbin are both 2 -wire, however the Corbin is designed to plug into their seat. You have to switch the plugs. Easy to to do.
  5. My wife has never complained about not being able to get on and off the bike. I also have the Utopia backrest installed. However, my wife is 5'1 and 100 lb. Sent from my VS996 using Tapatalk
  6. Geez... I'm a little sunburnt from yesterday. At least you don't have to deal with spring break... Life in Florida can be tough! Sent from my VS996 using Tapatalk
  7. Sorry, I was talking about both. If your hitch is already on than you don't have to do anything to it. Just remove seat and bags for the harness. Harness is plug and play, very easy. Sent from my VS996 using Tapatalk
  8. It was simple, seat off, saddle bags off. Everything was plug and play. If your trailer has dedicated turn signals you will not need the 5 to 4 converter. The only concern is the top bolts on the hitch, they thread into aluminum and are easy to strip. I had to get a longer bolt and put a nut on the outside after I stripped one of mine. An hour or two to install. Instructions were good too. Sent from my VS996 using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks! I had several trips planned on Honda Trip Planner but they would not work. I imported them to Tyre and saved as a gpx ...works fantastic! Thnanks a LOT! Rob
  10. I suspect you'll need about 15 minutes to "get a good feel for it". I've probably got around 500 miles on mine behind the SVTC, pulls and stops it fantastic.
  11. Wrap is not as nice as a good paint job but it looks good, less expensive and reversable. Sent from my VS996 using Tapatalk
  12. It is fairly simple. If the oil meets the OEM specs than it can be used with no warranty worries. If it does not than you could be on your own.
  13. My wife Loves our motorcycle trips. We recently started staying in the koa cabins... Makes it even better. Sent from my VS996 using Tapatalk
  14. We take two weeks every summer and go somewhere, we usually have an idea of where we are going but sometimes don't end up there. We once left for the Grand Canyon and ended up at Niagra Falls. Those last 3 states are going to be tough with just two weeks when you ride out of central Florida. We went to San Fran one year and it was a lot for 2 weeks. We will do Alaska one year with a 4-week vacation and will hit those last 3 CONUS states then, hopefully, we'll do this on the Venture.
  15. I have not looked at mine yet and am going on the assumption that the swingarm check is so expensive because it is a pain to get to. If I spend all of that time to check a couple of bearings, it would be cost effective to change them while youre in there. If it is easy to get to then there will be no problems. I will most likely check them at 16,000 and let them go from there unless I'm in there for some other reason. I don't really care if Yamaha refused warranty on swingarm bearings as I said, once you're there to check them, changing them is no big deal. I ride to much to be tearing this bi
