Sargent World Sport Performance Seat Suzuki GSX 650F/GSX1250FA/GSF1250 Bandit
Excellent upgrade from stock seat.
This seat has made my commutes to work much better. It's about 45-50 minutes each way and where the old seat used to cause pressure points after about the 30 minute range. This one is smooth sailing the whole way. I'm looking forward to some long tides this summer to really test it out. I'm on the shorter end and have noticed it creates some pressure points on the hamstrings with a lot of stop and go riding. But it for long distances, it does its job perfectly.

NIce saddle worth the money.
I bought this saddle for my 2011 Suzuki GSX1250FA. I was getting numb butt on longer rides. The saddle fit and looked great. I would say it helped significantly with the numbness but didnt totally eliminate it. Maybe I am too old and just get a cruiser? IDK..

Sargent Suzuki GSX1250FA Seat
The stock seat on my Suzuki GSX1250FA would start to become uncomfortable after about an hour of riding. I decided to purchase the Sargent replacement. Installation was a snap. Sargent says the seat will conform to your seating position over time. I have found the foam in the seat, after a year, is still very firm, as in hard. I don't really find this seat giving me the comfort on long rides that I would expect, as in my case, it is too firm. Fit and finish is excellent as with all Sargent products. Seat includes a small compartment for your papers, like registration and insurance, which is a very nice feature.

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 .

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.
