    Corbin saddle

    Finally installed a Corbin saddle on my 1125CR after thinking about it for 5 years - so far, my conclusion is that it's easily the most comfortable motorcycle saddle I've ridden on any motorcycle...

    LOL it's funny because it's one of the few machines that has a dry sump oiling system, a vast improvement over traditional cheap wet sump systems. My buddy had an '06 CBR1000RR which seized up on...

    Does the rotor for the stator have the oil cooling mod done to it? My bike is still rocking the Harley harness fix.

    I've done some serious mileage on my XB12Ss, which is very comfortable IMHO, but I understand it's a bit stretched out compared to the original XB12S. I've not changed the stock peg locations either...
