Love my new Sergent seat!
« on: May 18, 2013, 11:22:37 am »
On the last 200ish mile ride I made I made up my mind that I hated the way the stock sear pushed me into the gas tank.  So even after watching the silly video of the guy that didn't have his seat pushed all the way down and wiggling it all over, I went ahead and ordered the Sergent low seat.  It came in yesterday and the fit and finish is outstanding.  So after installing it me and my wife did a short ride around the neighborhood and there was no more being shoved up into the gas tank. My wife even commented that the rear portion of the seat kept her from being shoved into my back.  Today I'm going to try and get the bike out and see how it feels after a few miles at speed on the highway.

Got the low seat by Sargent from the get go - never looked back. Wife loves it as well - same reason does not slide forward.

How much do they get for the Sargent seat? Looking into changing my seat on my 2009. Do they require you to send them your old seat? Any pics?

The sargent seat runs about 500 for the basic model. it is a completely new seat and pan, (you keep your seat). I had one on my GSX1250FA and it was fantastic. I have one on my '12 connie and it is not anywhere near as nice. However, I am not in the same physical condition as I was prior to this bike so that may have something to do with it.

Yes it looks like I'm going to wrap up the old seat and put it away for a spare. The Sergent Low seat is going to work well for me I believe.  :great:
