I purchased a Corbin heated low saddle for my 2007 R1200RT last July. The installation of the new seat was easy and the comfort factor it offered was excellent compared to the stock seat. I would highly recommend the all-day comfort of this saddle. However when the cold weather came last October I connected the seat to my Centech fuse panel. The Corbin seat comes with a two way toggle switch, low off or high. The seat heats up but I cannot turn it on low or off it keeps getting hotter and hotter, the toggle switch has no effect in either position. Only solution is undo the seat and unplug it from the power supply. I contacted Corbin and I suggested that the switch could be the problem so they sent a new one, after installing the wires in the same location as the old switch the problem remains the same, just keeps getting hotter and hotter? Corbin is suggesting to ship it back to the factory in California as it is still under warranty however they didn‘«÷t suggest they would pay for the freight which would be substantial from Ontario Canada Is this standard policy with shipping goods back to the manufacture? Has anyone had this type of electrical problem with a heated saddle?
I suspect installing a rheostat may do the trick however it's another gadget that will need to be mounted somewhere on the bike and I'm not too keen on doing that.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
