K1600B Sargent seat now available
I've been waiting a year for the new Sargent seat and riders backrest for my bagger and just ordered both. The seat will be offered in the same 2 heights as the stock seat and both will plug into the stock BMW under seat plug for heat just like stock. Currently only the regular height seat is available and the lower seat will be available soon. They are still working on the passenger backrest and a rack and those 2 items can also be used with the the stock seat. The rider backrest cannot.
They are expensive (seat $789 and riders backrest $350) but the quality, plug and play build, looks and Sargent's typical durability are what you are paying for. Plus a 30 day money back guarantee seals the deal for me. I have the Sargent seat and backrest on my 2014 GT and can ride all day without any soreness.
For full disclosure, I had to work on the backrest for my GT a bit by turning the pad upside down and having my mechanic bend the metal shaft to allow the right angle for me. I also have an Airhawk pad strapped to the seat. Even though it required some additional work to make it perfect it was a lot better than the options I had with the stock seat. Plus now I have some experience on how to modify things if needed and I'm confident I can make the new Sargent seat and backrest for the bagger perfect for me as well. I'm excited! It's been a long year waiting. Now I hope it gets to me by September 21st so I can ride the bagger to the BMW getaway in Tomah Wisconsin. If not, the Gt will be ready to go, but I've been waiting a year to take the bagger on a long trip.
