I was just coming here with the screenshot of the email reply I got from Dane saying the same thing. 

Anyone that will be getting a Sargent when they come out should ask for Dane. I don’t know if they work on commission or not for call in sales, but that’s what I’ll be doing.  He’s helped me out in the past with a custom seat for my Speed Triple when I did a drop-in at their facility and has been very responsive and honest when I’ve emailed him about the Tracer seat. 

He’s a good guy. 

At this point, it has been half a year since your original post, with "maybe" a September ship date.  You could have had a custom seat made months ago.

True, but I want to keep the OEM seat unmolested, for whatever reason.

I received an email today that the seat should be ready to ship at the end of the week. I’m crossing my fingers that holds.

I just received an email from FedEx with a tracking number. Seems my seat will begin its journey my way later today.

Received it in less than 24 hours after it shipped. Only did a test sit so far but it feels worlds better than the OEM already.

I'm trying to decide on whether to order this seat. Could I trouble you to post a pic with Sargent front and stock rear?

Is the extra width too much? Look odd?

And the forward slope? Much better?

I was about to call them today, but then I read a post here suggesting it really does not cute the slope issue. Thoughts?

I’ll do my best to remember once I get home to do that. 
 

I don’t think the extra width looks bad at all. 
 

I’ve only done the test sit so I can’t speak to the riding but it sure feels better already. 
 

I think the person that had Sargent use his bike to make it is here. He said the slope was still there and had them redo it last week. I don’t know if that will be their “standard” build or not but the slope never bothered me on the OEM seat, so take that for what it’s worth. I do plan on a ride in the mountains this weekend so I’ll be able to report back more Sunday.

Thanks so much!

Does the blue welt match closely? It seems a bit more blue, less blurple, in your pic.

Trying to decide on that vs silver.

There ya go! And yes the blue is a bit lighter and brighter. I think it blends well with the blue stripes on the tank. It’s color G-50.

I forgot; the silver color E-111 is very close to the silver under the seat. I had my guy there send me a bunch of swatches.  Those two were the closest to me.

Thanks so much for this!

So looks like no issues with fitment, even with stock rear, seems nice and tidy, no gaps on front or rear.
