Yup, I've heard nothing but good things about the Sargent seats. Never had a chance to try one yet though .I have had a Corbin and Seat Concepts on my KTM690. The Sargent on my KLR is much more comfortable than either of them. I wish I could get a Mustang for my 690. Of course no two butts are the same!!
On my 2011, I took the original seat to an auto upholstery shop, and had them trim about 2" off the rear of the seat. Tapered to 0" in front. (I wish I had taken slightly more off the back.)So I have a 2014 and my butt really suffers after a bit of time in the saddle. Please give me opinions on the best aftermarket seat. I am planning to hit the road long and often come the rapidly approaching Spring!!! Help, before I order
LOL. Well Tom, I wish I could say I was a lean, mean, fightin machine, but that was a long time ago. The heaviest I've ever been was 190 lbs, and that was when I was doing martial arts 6 days a week and eating everything I could get my hands on. Now, I'm just thin and quite a lot older. I've had many women try to fatten me up with really good home-cookin, but no luck. That being said, if I ever get down to your neck of the woods, let's find some good BBQ. I have a really good friend who lives down in your town and I need to head there and see her one of these days.I don't know anything about seats, but I know you need more barbecue.
John,Sorry to come late to this thread, but I'm 6'6" and 180 lbs soaking wet. I have almost no fat on my tush. I get NBS (numb butt syndrome) after about an hour of riding with the stock 2005 seat. Anyone with roughly my frame try the Sargent or Corbin and how did you like it? I'm leaning towards the Sargent from everything I've read, but just wanted thoughts with my build taken into account.
