Sargent World Sport Performance Seat - Users
« on: August 12, 2017, 12:19:30 am »
I'm interested in hearing from people who are using, or have used the Sargent World Sport Performance Seat.

Looks to get pretty good reviews.

So far, my biggest complaint about the stock seat is how it guides me into the gas tank.

Looking forward to reading about your experiences.

Thanks,
Tim

Tim,
I bought one off Ebay about a year after I bought my bike (around 2013.)
I was told it was the standard height seat, but it turned out to be a "low version" when it arrived.

Still, they're nice seats, and look good on a C14, imho.

My take...
Low versions don't have enough cushion and are hard. I'd last about 3 hours before the pain would set in.

Loved the look of the carbon fiber cover, but it turned out to be too slick for me, sliding was an issue.
My passenger never liked it, and never felt comfortable... slid around a lot, and felt like she had to always hang on to me.

A bit pricey... especially if bought new. Again, my opinion...

I ended up buying a used Kawasaki Gel seat from another member here... for $250.
For me, it's perfect, and I love the rough textured seat cover. My passenger loves it, doesn't even feel the need to hang on to me at all. She likes it even better than a RDL I paid $500 for!

Thanks for the insight Bob.
I'm going to refrain from purchasing a new seat this season, just doing a little research for now.

Tim,

I see you're in North Central... I'm in Ann Arbor.  I have a Saddleman and a stock seat on the shelf and a Kawi touring seat on the bike.  You're welcome to come by and try any of them if you happen to be within travelling distance.  (Can't help with the Sargent, though.)
