Ok

after riding all day last saturday i had monkey butt.

so i ordered a sargent seat,after installing the seat i sat on the new seat

and felt like the seat was to short.

i am 6ft 2in and have long azz legs inseam is 36 in.

looking for options, really dont want to pay sargent to modify the seat

and then i dont like it.

Any one have any ideas? :eek:

I'm in the same boat! Tried the DP race seat, and the height was manageable, but I went numb in the hips/tailbone after 30 mins. Sargent was going to be my next step, but after reading this, I might just wait and see.

Damn that sucks I'm 6'2" also and was considering the Sargent , If you don't like it maybe you could return it .I'm glad you wrote this .
Member bullseye has just gotten a Corbin maybe we can get him to write a review . I'm leery about buying stuff that you can't actually see.
I was considering this DUCATI HYPERMOTARD LEATHER SEAT,CORBIN,SARGENT,MOTORCYCLE SEAT | eBay
but its too sculpted , I like the stock seat height that's why I called Sargent to check there custom seat specs.Only to find out there custom seats are 450$$ and similar to there main seat ,and seem kind of cut out ,where the Corbin looks flat and neutral.The more I research the more confused I become .

I bought my seat directly from sargent,before i bought it they said they could modify it for a price min is 85.00 however if you do have it modified and dont like it it is NOT RETURNABLE !!!!!

I have contacted another company that modifies seats to see if they do the
Hyper Seats.

I will keep you posted.

The seat is returnable to sargent within 30 days.

This looks like a Good Option !!!!!!!

Seat concepts does hyper seats. They can be found on wheelingcyclesupply.com. I have seen their DRZ and KTM 690 seats which were both very well made.

I've only got 350 miles on my 1100, but after rallying around 20 miles, my arse was numb. Try googling it. I got a hit from a Aussie forum, they really liked the Sargent seat, and I'm thinking of ordering one. The height is slightly higher than stock, right? Is it comfortable?

I am happy with the stock seat on this 2012 sp cosrse. Is is different than the rest. I know that i had a gel seat on my last hyper and this seat is ten times better than it was.
