    Can you take some side-on pictures of various configurations of the seat? That might help others see what you're dealing with. Maybe others can take similar pictures of their seat/bike.

    The single piece Corbin saddle had some issues. The one I had required nearly 1/2" of spacers under the latch mechanism (on the bike) for the saddle hasp to mate with the lock mechanism. I contacted Corbin a few times about the issue but received no response. In addition, the height corresponded to a bit more than the lowest position on the stock saddle. They did respond to that question by telling me ......... "it is what it is.."

    BTW - Nice RS

    You might try adding a sheepskin seat cover. You won't slide forward on it. The seat my '00 RS is a Rick Mayer.
