***SOLD*** Sargeant Seat for Sale
« on: June 03, 2018, 09:08:14 pm »
 I have a three year old Sargeant seat for sale.  Side of seat has a two inch slit in it that I have easily repaired with Gorilla tape. I would keep it but insurer insists on replacing with a new one. (No wonder our rates are so high!).  Sale $75 US or $90CDN.  Shipping not included.

I'd like to buy it.  I'm in the states (CA).  Will it cost a fortune to ship it here?

Thanks,

Ken

I got foam & a cover if you want to repair it.

The act of riding is a form of meditation, because the concentration that's required to safely ride a motorcycle tends to focus the mind in a way that eliminates other mental distractions that might interfere with the mission.

My offer of $90 plus shipping costs made via email is hereby rescinded due to lack of any response from seller for two days now... I just bought a Seth Laam seat instead of waiting around for a response from OP... 

good luck to the rest of you. I'm done.

I had both a Sargent and a Laam. Neither worked well for me, ended up liking my Seat Concepts the best.

would you PM me about the Laam issues you had??  no money has exchanged hands yet, but they have my info for a custom build...  I'd like to hear from you.

I had a sargent on my KLR years ago and it really improved that ride...  I've done seat concepts foam and vinyl on a couple of bikes...  better but not great...  so I'm really curious what my $360 at Laam is going to get me

thanks!

Because I'm only 5'7" with proportionally short arms I usually sit more toward the front of the S10's seat. The problem I had with the Sargent seat is it forced me to sit too far back into a "pocket" to be comfortable. The front section of the seat was pretty hard so that didn't work and I sold it.

When I talked to Seth I told him what I wanted, a neutral shape like the stock seat that gave me the freedom to sit forward or back. Per his request I sent him pics of me on the stock seat. After waiting four weeks, I finally get the seat only to find it very similar to the Sargent with a well defined pocket and the front section hard and uncomfortable. I sent it back to him on my dime (from Japan) to be reworked but it didn't get much better in this respect. It also wasn't waterproof I learned, despite the website saying that the stitching doesn't let in rain. Got a wet butt the day after I rode 40 minutes in the rain even though it looked dry and had been in my garage overnight. That's when I decided to sell it and get a Seat Concepts. The SC does have the neutral profile that I wanted, so I can sit toward the front or back and be equally comfortable. It wasn't 100 percent waterproof either, but at least it was comfortable.

If you're a tall rider you might like it better than I did, as long as you don't care about sitting toward the front when on dirt, etc.
