    I just bought a new to me 2019 650XT. The previous owner installed a Sargent seat that feels and looks awesome. The only problem is the bike is a bit cramped for me (6'3" 34" inseam). I'm going to install the AdventureTech peg lowering kit (on order), but will it be enough? I think the Sargent...

    I'm trading in my 2009 VStrom 650, but I'm selling my Sargent World Performance seat separately. It is in excellent condition, having only been used for approximately 400 miles. Originally purchased in July of 2019. Asking $325.00 If you're interested, please email me at [email protected] I...

    Hi - I recently brought a lower seat for my DL1000. Turns out I am taller than I give myself credit for an I just can't get on with it. I have used it once and it is pristine, but the dealer won't take it back. I am in the UK (Birmingham), and I am open to any sensible offers to anyone that...

    Has anyone used this seat? If so, how is seat height and comfort compared to original? My bike is 2015 model and I am considering this seat although it is not a gel seat.

    I'm considering a move up in CCs and touring capability from my Gladius to the new V-Strom 1000. My problem is that I have about a 29" inseam on a good day. I see that Suzuki offers a Low Seat for the Strom 1000, but I'm not sure how much lower it actually is. Sargent offers a Low Seat that's...

    Hi folks, I am a new Vee2 owner and have been working on kitting out the new bike with various farkles. One thing on my to-do list is to get a better seat for it. The OE one is ok for a few hours, but I am used to doing consecutive 12+ hour days on my old Honda and I really don't see that...

    Hello all, I just did my first serious ride on my strom. It was a weekend afair and I am definitely feeling the pain from it today. I bought the bike from a guy who put on a slightly better seat than the stock one but still not great. I have been looking around and have narrowed my seat choice...

    Sorry if this has been answered many times but the search feature will not let me use the word "bag" because it is too short! I tried every which way but it just will not take it. So here goes: Is there a passenger seat bag for the DL1000? As a Vee newb I am guessing these are not too popular...

    Hey, so I did the custom ride in and have had my RDL for about 2500 miles. I got the seat for the obvious reasons; however, I have developed back/neck pain that I have NEVER had before. The pain starts in my mid/lower back after a few minutes of riding and after 15-20 mins of riding progresses...

    Hello all, I am looking for pictures of mods to the seat on 2013 650. Please post what you have. Also, What's a clean method for cutting pads? Thanks!

    I have a Vstrom 650 2013, and am preparing for spring travel. I have added heated handgrips, but want to add a heating strip/pad to my seat, as well. Has anyone had good experiences with particular types of heating pad units, with controls ?

    I stumbled across this site - it looks like they make some beautiful saddles. Has anyone else tried one? How do you like it? Did you get vinyl or leather? Suzuki V-Strom DL650 2012 - Newer Grand Touring Custom Seats - Baldwin Motorbike Saddles

    Hi. I was wondering if anyone here has replaced the seat on their Wee? I saw a MJM seat which looked good (but haven't tried) and was thinking about one of those as they are in Goulburn (I'm in Canberra). Thoughts on other seats for long rides? Anyone tried Airhawk? cheers Apologies if there is...

    I just wanted to say to people wondering what seat to use on their Glee. I just received my Baldwin (touring) back from loren and he also installed a Utopia drivers backrest in it. I put on 100 miles Saturday in 29 degree weather. I am so happy with it i did not want to stop. but it was that or...

    I had my Glee lowered by 3/4" front and rear by the dealer before I picked it up as I haven't riden in 25 years and didn't feel comfortable with this tall bike. BTW, my inseam is 28". Has anyone tried the stock lower seat on a Glee instead of lowering the suspension. Some of the drawbacks I'm...

    Hi all, Seat was splitting on my '05 650 so I did a search and came across Northwest Classic Seat Covers on ebay and I am very impressed. A mix of carbon fiber vinyl and plain vinyl, cut to match stock and fairly easy to install. I think it looks fantastic and only cost around $64 with...
