I'm just over 5'10"-the bike fit good when I used the sundowner seat but the corbin sets you back thus the need to bring the bars back- I was having to rotate forward just enough to put a kink in the middle of my back. Here is another picture with the garage door open-it is a little brighter.

the handlebars came with the required cables, I believe they just had to change the brake cable-they charged me for a 1.75 hour job to do the replacement. I am very happy (Except we are to get over 2 inches of rain the next two days and it is the weekend!)

That's something that's always pissed me off about Corbin. Why can't they make the stock version of their seats EXACTLY match the rise and reach of the stock piece? 90% of the people who order them who are in the 5'8" to 5'11" range end up sending them back for mods. Another reason I'll probably never buy a Corbin, that plus the fact that Mike Corbin is a thief......

I rather like the new position being a little further back gave me a better leg position-I know a lot of people have had problems with corbin, but I must save I have put a corbin on all of my bikes and they had greatly added to my enjoyment of riding(I know I sound like an advertisement).
I am not sure about the cables fitting in the bar as I did not do the install-I will call the service guy next week and ask him. And by the way, it is great that my service manager rides a V-Rod and has done many mods and is hooked on the bike as most of us are!

Truthfully, I have not sat on the Sundowner, I really didn't loke the look. The Corbin seat is BMW firm. There is little give, but I like the support and shape of the seat. Also, I have the Young Gun Solo, not the Hollywood. The YG is one piece. There is no separate pilon for the passenger. It gives the seat a cleaner look without the seam.

I am 5'11" and am going to go the other way...drag bars. I am using the sundowner deat (which my wife appreciates) and the stock bars don't allow me to stretch out.

Plus the drag bars look cool.

Glad to see the project worked out for you. Now for the rain to go away....
