Sergent or Saddlemen Explorer RS
« on: October 09, 2019, 12:35:06 pm »
Time to replace oem seat and I found a decent deal for used Sergent and a like-new Saddleman RS.   Any opinions or thoughts on one vs the other from people with experience with them?

I have never had a Sergent seat so I can't help there but I did briefly have a Saddlemen Explorer RS. By briefly, I mean I ordered the seat and when it arrived installed it, sat on it and immediately returned it. I ordered the seat with a heated front portion and the factory wiring was just a mess. Hard to describe. But the biggest problem was that the seat was so low and so crowded forward that I could barely get in to the seat let alone ride the bike with that seat. Also, the fit to the bike was unacceptable and it just wasn't proportioned right to install on the bike. That experience may just be an isolated thing. The best thing would be to sit on the seat you intend to purchase before you are committed. No two seats or rear ends are the same.

Sargent World seats are nice, although a little on the hard side.  The "low" version is even harder- only consider that version (know what you are getting!!!) if you *must* have the lowest seat made for the Concours (it is what I have).  The heater is very powerful.  The pod version (what I have) is great extra storage that also looks great.  The fit is good, although getting it on and off is difficult.
