It appears your sargent seat in the photos retains both. This is the reason I am having them widen and dish the seat, to provide a greater area of support that is more contoured to provide support outward towards my hips. Additionally, I sat on the bike and had my girlfriend draw a level line across the side of the seat and am having Sargent level the seating area so it doesn't push me towards the tank. Hopefully I wind up with better results than you are describing.

Actually I had requested some specific changes and also had to draw a level line across the sdes of the seat. The area of the seat I tend to sit on is the narrowest section which is making it uncomfortable. Will wait for your results and will probably have to send the seat back for some rework.

BTW: Last May/June when I had the seat worked on, I was told that they had just received a Tiger 800 to use to design a new seat.
