SOLD - 2-piece Sargent seat, like new!

June 2 edit:
REDUCED TO $400 SHIPPED!

Two-piece Sargent seat set, model year ‘06 and newer, with black welt. I bought this new from Revzilla in 2017, and used it for 3800 miles until I took it off last week before trading in my 2016 FJR...so barely used and in excellent, like-new condition.

Retails for $579.95 — selling for $400 plus shipping, and as a set only. $50 estimated shipping for this big, heavy box..if it turns out to be less, I’ll refund the difference.

Do yourself and your passengers a big favor for the new riding season...ditch the rock-hard, forward-sloping & flat OEM stock seat and get this super comfortable Sargent World Sport Performance Seat (No Heat) set.


From Sargent’s website:
World Sport Performance Seats have the following features:
*Precision-engineered, lightweight, tough PolyTec Seat Base Pans with handy built-in under seat storage.
*Super Cell Atomic Foam suspension and enhanced shape for incredible driver and passenger comfort.
*Gel-Free! Superior comfort and suspension without the thermal retention and extra weight of gel.
*Improved seat angle which eliminates forward slope and provides a more neutral seating angle for driver and passenger.
*Widened and slightly concave shape to increase contact area and better distribution of pressure over a greater area.
*Fully assembled and ready to install - right out of the box.
*Optional Passenger Backrest available (will only mount on Sargent seat).

This is what the Sargent seat looks like on the FJR...very attractive, to say the least.

RC65, would you care to comment on your seat's highness/lowness factor? I've been using an old Corbin just trying to accommodate my older, shorter legs but it's not too comfortable for me- something's just not right about it. I've wondered if the Sargent might be the answer. Thanks.

Sure. I found it to be a wash compared to the stock seat. It actually sits a little bit lower because it has a dished-out pocket for the rider and is level, rather than the flat and angled stock seat...the flattened angle of the stock pushes the rider up a bit. But the Sargent does seem to be a hair wider between the thighs, which shaves off a little leg length to the ground. So it’s generally a wash against the stock when it comes to height, by my experience.

I’d kinda thought the difference was a little more pronounced until I put the stock seat back on the FJR to ride it 90 minutes south to trade it in…and I noticed that my feet placement on the ground was the same as the Sargent.

This two-piece Sargent seat set is now reduced to $400 shipped (to U.S. address).

That’s nearly $200 off retail! If you’re looking for an aftermarket seat, this is an incredible deal on a like-new set.

Did you notice much of a comfort difference vs stock seat? I have never had much trouble with the stock seat or bar configuration for 4-5 hour jaunts.. but just curious If I may be missing something since thats not a bad price in my mind.

I found it to be significantly more comfortable than stock: the concave dish/pocket rather than flat, the level angle rather than sloping (so less weight on wrists), and all the other features listed in the first post...it all comes together for a much more comfortable ride.

It was the best upgrade to my FJR I ever did, and I was reminded of that when I put the stock seat back on a few weeks ago to ride it an hour away to trade the bike in: just night and day.
