    Default Replacement seat price comparison?

    Has anyone done a price comparison on available seats for the RT?

    Corbin, RDL, Kontour, Ultimate, Mustang, BRP Comfort, etc.?

    I've got almost $1500 in my Corbin with trunkrest, armrests, and rider backrest, but it is well worth the cost to me. I blew out a coupla discs in my lower back last summer because the stock seat is too soft for me - when I was leaning to the right my torso was going to the left and vice versa All is well now!

    Kontour Seat: what i paid this past Jan: 1075.00

    RT seat-rider & passenger 875.00
    Utopia back rest 150.00

    1025.00 plus shipping 50.00. for them to ship back. 1075.00
    My cost for shipping going out is not included in these numbers.
    Also not included is the passenger back rest.

    Best comfort mod I have done.

    I paid $1350 for a Kontour seat and $239 for a Utopia driver backrest. I also paid another $100 to ship the original spyder seat and passenger backrest to Kontour.

    The Kontour price included rebuilding the spyder seat, installing the Utopia driver backrest, and recovering the passenger and Utopia backrests with the same materials used on the main seat so that they would match.

    Someone besides Corbin is doing the gas door? Nothing like copying someones idea.

    Corbin did me well for 50,000 miles on my GS. Got my RT seat coming next week. I've sat on the various other brands and just wasn't as impressed as I have been with the quality

    Spyder #2 - 2012 RT SM5. Traded in after 24,000 miles.
    Spyder #3 - 2015 F3 SM6. Put 13,000 miles on and sold it.

    Well.. 'better' is a very subjective term. I much prefer the hidden door on the Corbin compared to the locking huge gas door pictured above. Never been worried about someone stealing gas.... besides having to deal with a key to open it every time? No thanks.

    I'm not a fan of the fuel door, but I like the look of the seat. If I was going to do a fuel door, I'd prefer Corbin's implementation. The fuel door on the Ultimate looks like the fuel door on my Jeep. JMHO.
