Sargent World Sport Adventure Touring Seat Suzuki DR650 1996-2009,2011-2013
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.

A DR650 Must have
This is a very good seat. So far, I do believe this seat is worth the money. It looks great on the bike and doesn't look out of place on a DR650. The seat is like a big pan. Much wider than the stock seat and, not much, but slightly softer. You can ride on this all day. You're still going to be sore after a couple hours but it's *nothing* like the agony of the stock seat. Because of the width, it is a little harder to touch the ground, but not too bad. The only real "con" about this seat (and, honestly, it's not that bad) is the fitment. Following the installation instructions exactly, it fits a little loose at the front where it mates up with the tank compared to the original seat. It's not enough to cause any problems but there is a much larger visible gap between the tank and the seat. Another downside is that it's a little harder to move around on this seat compared to stock, but if you're like me and pretty much only riding it on the road, it won't make a difference. The only other qualm is that the seat gets scuffed by boots fairly easily.
I would definitely buy this again.

Very comfortable seat
The seat is overall very comfortable, it is a quality made product and very durable. After around 2-3 hours your bum starts to feel it though.. however it is tolerable unlike the stock seat. This seat makes the DR a much more enjoyable bike to ride for longer distances and is highly recommended!

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.
