Saddlemen Explorer RS Seat for Kawasaki ZG1400 Concours

Carefully shaped for riding comfort and style, the Saddlemen Explorer RS Seat has a rich appearance that should increase the value of the motorcycle it’s fitted to. Inspired by the renowned Road Sofa touring seats, Saddlemen has brought a high level of comfort and rich style to the Explorer line of cruiser-based touring seats.

Don’t think the Explorer RS as  just another pretty face. Look past its luxurious appointments, and you can see  that the deep, wide contours of the saddle are mated with a refined nose shape creating a long distance saddle that helps the rider touch the ground with confidence at stops.

Under that rich exterior is Saddlemen’s innovative seat pan that ensures the seat slips  on and mounts easily. The cover itself magnifies the cushion and support of Saddlemen's proprietary progressive density foam and SaddleGEL so you will want to keep riding even after you’ve reached your destination


  • A version of Saddlemens popular touring seat, but with a plush, pillow-top style covering
  • Provides riders of non-touring motorcycles the comfort and style of a Road Sofa seat
  • Saddlemens comfortable design is the gold-standard for touring seats
  • Exclusive, split-cushion design separates the seating surface from the lumbar support, reducing tailbone and back pressure for maximum long-range comfort SaddleGel in both driver and passenger portions increases comfort even during long trips
  • Heated feature available on certain models
  • Five-level heat adjustment using remote controllers that connect easily to bike’s electrical system
  • Independently controlled heating elements for rider and passenger
  • Integrated pocket/belt clip allows controllers to be mounted wherever handy, are easy to use even with gloved hand, and can easily be tucked out of sight when not in use
  • Brightly colored LEDs indicate level of heat
  • Made in the U.S.A.

Good Seat, wish it would have better discription
I ordered the Saddlemen RS for my Kawasaki Concourse 14. I was impressed with the overall look of the seat and the initial fit to the bike. I was somewhat surprised by the lower seat height and the tilt towards the tank. The seat itself is comfortable but it changes the overall riding position and makes you feel like you're riding the tank more. Overall better than stock but if I would have know this is how the seat would be I would have opted for a different seat.

Comfortable, good value
Overall the seat is a big improvement over stock, much more comfortable over a long ride. Had to do some customizing to the front slots to make it fit. Once it was on it fit tight. The downside is that it's a little slippery if you want to hang off, which I don't do often, and it's twice as heavy as the stock seat. But the comfort makes it worthwhile when you're touring. The passenger seat is a huge improvement if you ride two up.

Is this a soft seat? I bought a Sargent, and it's to hard for long rides
Darrin L on Jul 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: So this seat feels allot better then the OEM one I hard. Just to let you know, I hard back surgery a couple of years ago, they had to fuse L4 & L5, Boy that hurts. So the OEM seat was out of the picture. I purchased the Saddlemen in hopes it would help my back and it did. It also has stopped my wife from sliding forward when we ride. Which used to bother the hell out of me. So far I have over 1000 miles on the Saddlemen and I'm liking it.
Bag for the buck a great choice for me.
In terms of comfort, is the Explorer superior to the Stealth? The material of the Explorer appears slippery. Is that the case? Is is flat or do you lean forward as on the stock seat? Does it fit well on the bike or does it require adjustments? thanks
A shopper on Sep 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I can't answer the question about the Stealth. The material on the Explorer is not slippery and it is relatively flat. It does not lean forward like the stock seat. It fits very well. You do have to transfer some brackets from the old seat to the new one. I find it much more comfortable than the stock seat on a long ride.
I have read the Saddlemen seats do not include the metal hooks the the saddle needs to secure and lock down on the C14. I have a custom seat built on my stock pan and not satisfied with it. I would consider the RS but would like to sell the other seat to recoup some money. The is also a problem that the seat hard wear is not available as an OEM part from Kawasaki. Are the hooks included?
walter r on Oct 4, 2013
BEST ANSWER: No they are not and the seat slopes forward is slippery and has minimal padding so you slid around and forward into the tank all the time pushing on the handle bars to stay back on the seat. I tried to return it but was told no because I put it on the bike to try out it was now used and I would lose about 30% to return it! I wrote revzilla and Saddleman about this Rev is the only one that responded. I am taking my new seat in this winter to get it reworked so I can use it. DON"T BUY ONE ! ! !
