Sargent Seat
« on: July 31, 2018, 03:05:30 am »
I just bought a new 2018 C14 and have been experiencing the forward push of the stock seat. Just received a Sargent seat today. Comparing the two visually and by sitting on them on the bike, I don't notice much of any difference. Reviews that I've read on the Sargent seat are all relative to pre-2015 Connie's before the seat was redesigned. Does anyone have experience or knowledge of the two seats to know if the Sargent is a significant upgrade to the 2018 OEM seat? If I test ride it, I own it.

As so many have mentioned, everyone's tail/seat/whatever is different and what works for one doesn't work for another. I tried a Sargent for several month on both long and short trips. Sold it and went back to my stock seat. Maybe someday I'll have Seth Liam rework it, but low priority for me right now. I'm lightweight and do 500-600 mile days on the stock seat ... believe it or not

You might also consider a Baldwin seat. Loren is a great guy who does excellent work. He rides a C14.
