Sargent World Sport Adventure Touring Seat Kawasaki KLR650 1991-2015
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 quality product
A bit too firm but hopin it will break in with time other then that a most excellant seat. Fits better then the factory.

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.

Sargent Seat KLR 650
I love this seat. It feels wider and eliminates the pain caused by the stock seat. It makes the bike feel taller - but that's ok for me as I am tall.

Easily installed, a perfect fit, looks beautiful, comfortable.
I have a 32 inch inside leg. This low height KLR650 Sargent seat has transformed my commuting ride in terms of safety; I can now plant both feet flat on the ground at a standstill. No more tip-toeing. Installation took 15 mins. The clean lines of this seat transform the appearance of the bike. I shall not miss the OEM seat at all. My Sargent seat is comfortable and well made. I am very happy with this product. Delivery was efficient.

As comfortable as advertised
Installed this seat prior to long ride and was immediately impressed with the comfort versus the stock KLR 2 x 6.
Previously the sore buns started around 20 miles out, not with this seat. Easily go 200 miles without stopping.

So much better than stock
Haven't done more than 100 miles in one day yet but after 20 minutes on the stock seat I was squirming or standing up. On the sergeant I haven't even thought of doing either. Was really tight putting it on the first time but after using it for a week it went on much easier the second time and is now as easy to install as the stock one was.
