Sargent World Sport Adventure Touring Seat Kawasaki KLR650 1991-2016
stock seat was to high for me and only bought this to lower the seat height. after installing it and taking it out for a few rides breaking the seat in this seat has proven to be well worth the money spent. comfort is very nice compared to the stock seat i could ride 30 miles and my butt would hurt! this seat though i can ride a lot longer with out having to stop to take a walk! all in all i would have to say this was the best upgrade i have done to my KLR650

Whole new ride.
I was hesitant on buying a new seat because everyone's fit is different. Even after only 350mi, it's like having a new bike again. The ride is better and so much more comfortable. Wish I would of done it sooner.

Another Satisfied Sargent Seat Customer!
This is my fourth, or so, Sargent Seat and they still put out a quality product! I put this one on my '14 KLR 650 and what a difference! No more squiggling and squirming after a few miles. I am 6'1" and got the standard height one and it actually allows me to plant my feet a little firmer at the stop. Others complained about how difficult it was to install, mine just popped right in place (helps if you know there are two connection points at the fuel tank). I also have a Sargent Seat on my BMW R12RT and it performs the same way...excellent!

Well worth the price!
This makes the KLR much more enjoyable for long rides. Replaced my 2008 KLR650 saddle with 25,000 miles. I'm 6ft, 185lbs - new saddle is far more comfortable.

I bought this because I could not stand my stock KLR seat for more than 50 miles. I had to get off. The Sargent is shaped much different, and is a bit softer. The KLR seat is narrow and convex. The Sargent is 50% wider and slightly concave. Much better for longer rides. I cannot speak to durability, as I have only had the seat for 3 weeks. It is pricy, but much more rideable than stock.

Could be better
This seat is better than the stock seat but not not by much. I do not find it any more comfortable than the stock seat and there is this ridge or bump right where I like to sit. I can't figure out where on the seat they intended the driver to sit because it is too narrow up front and the wide pan is too far back. I also had a hard time getting the seat on, it does not "line up" well. The material it is made of is slippery when wearing my mesh pants. I've never had a seat before do that. The only reason I'm still using it is because the seat is about 1/2 inch lower which gives me more confidence when stopped. I am hoping the seat will break in and conform more to my butt and sitting position.

Great replacement to my KLR stock seat.
I bought this seat a year ago and it has held up well. I am off roading a lot and its holding up. I have started to notice some freying on the seems though. Another issue that I did not like was the wedge clip that goes against the gas tank is plastic and not metal. My stock seat had a metal clip. A year later and it seems to be ok. As for comfort? It is hands down better than the stock seat on the KLR 650. Instead of lasting a 45 minutes, I can pull 4 hours now.
