seat weight ?

tried searching site but can't seem to find if this has been addressed...question is does anybody know the weight difference between the corbin and sergeant seats? my buddy has the corbin on his strom and it just seems WAY heavy compared to stock (which is expected), but i've never checked out a sergeat seat,both seem excellant by reviews....trying to keep things as light as possible when i'm all geared and loaded down...then airhawks get thrown into the equation...g-friend and i ride 2-up and the price of front and rear airhawk is dang near the price of these seats sooooo what to do?

seat weight

Don't know the weight difference between corbin and sargent but when mounting my sargent it seemed way lighter than my zuk gel. Happy with the Sargent.

I've had both and the Corbin weighs a ton compared to the stock and the Sargent. Sargent is about the same weight as the stocker. I'm sure someone will correct me as they will be a little different in weight, but close enough.

Corbin makes their seat pans out of fiberglass, much heavier than Sargent or stock.

Change you can believe in? biggest waste of tax- payer money in the history of the US.

I've had stock Wee, stock Vee, Suzuki gel, and Sargent. The Sargent is damned near weightless compared to others. Shockingly so. And I think it might lead to transmitting a bit more vibes to the rider, but nothing serious.
