How much lower will Corbin Classic Solo set me over stock seat?

Have a 17 RGS, been waiting to add bars and windscreen this winter. Guessing 1 to 2 inches.

Thnx

You could also request a Nose Job on a Corbin seat. It trims the width on the nose of the seat.

If you're having a problem with stance, you must keep width in mind also.
Just because a seat sit low , width can take up a lot of leg stance.

Thanks Gents, good input. My key concern is adding a windscreen that I can look over. Bike is still at dealer waiting for stage 3 kit to come in. Plan to ride up to Hollister sometime to have saddle fitted; thought Iíd order a LRS ahead of trip. Think Iím safe with an inch lower.

Everyone have a great Road Day!

Im 5'6 and Ive had the stock seat a Hammock and now I'm running the corbin duel tour. Im also running the 10" LRS medium dark shield. How tall or should I say short are you? That will help out a lot. I have no problems with my corbin and my wife and gear on the bike. Im also about 140 lbs. Im fixing to order an 11" LRS shield so I can semi tuck behind it in the rain.

You'll love the corbin. Im guessing a 12" LRS will be the ticket but don't take my word for it. Get the Mrs. to measure your eye height and the top of your dash.
