I have a Smuggler on order. I expect to receive it in a couple of weeks, and to report in mid-late June.

I don't know the answer, but I want to be sure of the question. By thinner, do you mean less padding, or narrower side-to-side?

I like to look too. Wish I could get a smuggler for extra space, but I ride two up too often.

As far as the seat, I've posted on a couple sites and never got a reply from someone who's purchased one. The only response I received stated that corbin seats are very hard. You either love them or hate them. I personally would like to get one but won't until I get some response from someone who has because of the price. That's a lot to put out if you don't like it.

I do not have the Corbin seat on my Majesty, but have had the Corbins on many previous cycles, and, yes, they are quite hard. Very few of them changed the seat height by any significant amount.

Have you tried moving the Majesty seat forward yet? It goes about 2" and that will also angle the seat downward slightly, making the reach to the ground somewhat less. My wife rode her Majesty with the seat in about the 3rd hole forward, and liked that position quite well.

Thanks Ron for the reply. I started out in the first hole. Since I'm 5'3 1/2" (which I usually push to 5'4'), I thought the first whole was best.
Then I ended up not feeling comfortable with my feet in the frontmost position (legs hurt - too short an angle). Moved it back to where your wife has hers. Then just decided I'd try it back further and now that's where it is. Guess I have long legs and arms and a short body. Oh well, we get what we have and can't change it.

Appreciate the info.

You can also adjust the tilt of the handlebars fore and aft, if that will make any difference to your proper fit on your Majesty.

BTW, the instructions for adjusting the handlebars are not in the Yamaha manual, they are listed on this forum somewhere... somebody post the link!

Having sucessfully solved the windscreen/noise problem, I'm going to turn my attention to the seat.

At 5k miles, I can feel that I've worn down into the present seat.

I have a Butt Buffer, which I've used for long trips, and a Bead Rider, which I haven't used as extensively.

Next season, I'm going to try a Corbin seat. The comments I've heard about it being hard do not bother me...it can always be softened up, by a 250# butt. :wink:

On top of that will go the bead rider, as required. Will report.
