Sargent World Sport Performance Seat Suzuki GSX 650F/GSX1250FA/GSF1250 Bandit
I ended up with the 'low'
I purchased the standard for my 2009 Suzuki 1250 bandit, but I ended up with the 'low' version. I am 6'1" with long legs and very long arms. the standard seat put me a little too high, but WAY too far back. The short seat is a little lower, but more importantly (to me), the 'butt' of the saddle - the u-shaped rise in the front portion of the saddle - is about 1.5" shorter than the standard seat, and felt perfect for me. unless you are extremely tall, or very heavy (i am 220 lbs) - the 'heavy' guys perhaps having a larger posterior, which would push them more forward on the seat - you may want to try the short version first. either way: great seat.

Good for high riders, but you need handlebar risers
Good for high riders, but I'm sitting to far from handlebar now, so I have to either move front and sit on narrow part of the saddle or I have somehow rise my handlebar up and back.

Better than stock
This seat is wider than the stock seat and is flat, not slanted forward. Much more comfortable. The pain is still there after a couple hundred miles- it's just a little less.In all fairness I don't think any motorcycle seat can be as comfortable as a car seat due to the ergonomics involved. I can ride longer and be in less pain with the Sargent .

So much more comfortable
I guess there is no such thing as an inexpensive good seat,so....just fork it over, you'll be glad you did

Suzuki Sargent Seat
Installed this seat on a Suzuki GSX 1250. The OEM seat provided a comfortable ride for about 1 1/2 hours before causing discomfort that lasted all day. This seat provides enough comfort to easily ride for 3 hours plus without a break. The rear seat hasn't been tested but appears to be just as comfortable as the front.

After installing the seat, I went for a ride and it was all that I expected it to be. Then I took my wife for a ride and she had exclaimed that the seat was wonderful and she was not sore at all. Thanks Revzilla for a great product. The only thing that I could recommend is that you carry the back rest for the seat. That would be fantastic!

Great Seat, but you're going to want risers
My husband purchased this seat for his Suzuki Bandit. He loves it. But, immediately, he wanted risers. The tricky part about bandits is installing risers because the brake lines are constricted. He was able to install a smaller set which helped and he's happy with them. At this point, he's just waiting to see how the brake lines do. He couldn't have installed risers any higher than the ones he did. The seat install was quick and easy, but as with all seats, it changed how he sat and his position on the bike as he rides. If the brake lines end up pinching, he's going to have to take it in and have new brake lines installed--which is an expensive proposition.
