Sargent is the way to go

I've ridden for 13 hours in one day on my sargent and could have kept going.

Got my Sargent installed on my 2013 a few weeks ago and I couldnt be happier. I no longer slide into the tank as much when braking hard and when engine braking and it's a whole lot more comfortable than stock. I also called at a time when they were having a sale and got the front seat and rear cover for $284 shipped.

All three of those are different. Better foam padding, not quite as narrow as stock, a half inch higher ride hide than stock. Just get it, you won't regret it.

Instead of being tapered down at the back on the sides it flares out to caress your bum bum and give it a nice warm cozy feel.

When I switch from my WR450F to my 2012 Z it's like going from a 2x4 to a lazy boy.

They are ugly.
