Where to buy Sargent seat in Canada?

I am planning to buy a Sargent seat for my Wee, but I can't find it in Canada. Dualsportplus and A Vicious Cycle carry Corbin.

Anybody knows where to get it?

If it is not available locally, do you know where to get it the cheapest in the States? So far these are the best prices I found:

Suzuki V-Strom DL1000 & DL650 Accessories
Sargent World Sport Performance Seat for DL650/1000 V-Strom 02-10 - Seats & Seat Covers - Solo Moto Parts

Do you know any other/better sources?

Thank you for your help in advance!

Buy from one of those vendors and have to shipped to Buffalo.

It's an easy ride down and very simple to cross the border.

Sure, you'll get hit with HST, but you would here anyway.

Send it to CBI and then ride down on a nice day and pick it up.

This CBI place sounds interesting. How do I ride back with 2 seats? Strap the old one on top of my top box? I guess it is doable...

I bought mine direct from Sargeant....I saved about $75.00 in shiping by having it shipped to Ogdensburg, NY and driving the hour to pick it up myself.

I could not find a better price and I looked for quite a while.

US Address is even better. They charge $5 per package. They are right on the first exit after you pass the border (Lewiston Bridge). Just few minutes. How to? Take your top box off of the bike and put it on the bike. BTW. Like brand new Sargent seat was sold yesterday on E-bay for $304.

Sargent sells for $409.00 vs. Sporttour's $370.00 and if I can believe their shopping cart the ground shipping is $12 to my place.

The advantage of CBI is that they will hold a package for no additional charge. US Address charges $5.00 to receive and then, after the first week, they start charging storage. CBI charges $5.95 to receive and no charges after that. Pretty handy if you are ordering things from a few different places. It also gives you the freedom to pick it up whenever.

Location is pretty much a wash.

Like oils, tires, and everything else, use what works for you.

I bought mine about two weeks ago direct from Sargent. I could have saved a little money but when you buy direct from Sargent you get a 2 year warranty on the seat cover and a 5 year warranty on the foam and seat pan, you only get a 1 year when bought from other vendors. My butt is very happy.

Leave the top box on and strap it across the pillion, angled back against the top box and you are good
