Sargent World Sport Adventure Touring Seat Kawasaki KLR650 1991-2013
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.

Doesn't fit my 2008 KLR 650
Fast shipping and the seat arrived well packed. I have tried several times to install, it just will not fit on the prong and clip that are on the bottom front of the seat, I will likely return it since I am tired of trying to install it.

I got the low seat and I immediately felt at home in the saddle. Definitely recommend this seat over the stock seat. It makes a huge difference on comfort for long or short trips.

So much better that stock.
After 4000 miles on my stock KLR 650 seat I finally gave in and bought this seat. I can't say enough how much more enjoyable it is to ride now. On the old seat, after 50 miles I would start getting numb bum and tingling in my legs. Would need stop and walk around and NOT look forward to getting back on after a few stops. Rode 100 miles straight yesterday and could have easily gone another with no discomfort. The wide pan and gel like padding makes all the difference. Looks great too.
Install was easy enough once I realized the fork type thing on the from of the seat needs to go under the bracket that holds the gas tank. It tended to try and go between the bracket and the tank. I put the original seat back on and noted how it's suppose to go. Once I saw that, its was pretty easy to get the forks under the bracket with a little pressure on the top of the seat. then is all snapped into place.

Much more comfortable than stock, my feet can now touch the ground
The summary pretty much says it all. I could barely touch the ground with my toes on the stock seat. The low seat dropped me down about 2". As a new rider, made me more comfortable.
I had to stop for a break every hour or so, to give my backside a rest with the stock seat. I can now easily go for a few hours. Much more comfortable.
I've had it for a little over a year and 5500 miles, still looks like the day it came out of the box.

Way more comfortable than the stock KLR650 seat, low model.
I've only got about 400+ miles on it so far, but its a heck of a lot better than the stock KLR650 seat it replaced. Did a 264 mile ride and my "butt" wasn't complaining where 150 miles on the stock seat was excruciating! Installation was a bit of a struggle, it took a lot of prying and coaxing to get it on. Its a firm foam, but softens a bit in the sun. Besides the install challenges, the fit and finish look great.
Overall, its a great seat for the price, but would be even better with some kind of breathable material on the seat rather than all vinyl.

Best seat on the bike
Approx.2500 miles ago I replaced the stock seat on my KLR with the Sargent seat. It was a great move. I was able to ride further with more comfort. The seat has a great finish and looks good on the bike. With the narrower contour up front and the wider contour towards the back enables the ability to change the pressure on the backside.
On the road or in the desert the seat worked out well.
It was a very good buy on my part.
