I just spent 12 days in Mexico riding 6-8 hrs a day, my Sargent seat never gave me any pain, 3rd bike I've gone with Sargent, haven't been disappointed yet.

No worries, Lex. I hope it gets worked out soon.

1998 and early '99 were equipped with a solid idler gear that created a problem when the engine kicked back during shutdown, breaking out the gear bearing bosses. This also breaks out and destroys the left case half due to its ridged design. The case halves always come in matched pairs and cost in excess of $650.00 not to mention labor charges to change all internal parts into new cases. This should not be taken lightly. '96 and '97 had the torque limiter gear that is designed to slip due to a preloaded slip clutch arrangement. Well they went back to this design in mid '99 after vin # X2100561 so if your Vin # predates this you should consider installing this updated item shown above.
Erm...I have briefly read about this, but just to clarify, mine is the '96 model, and while I have noticed it makes a pop after shutting down on some occasions, should I be worried? I can check the VIN number later today, and before that I won't be riding it anyway...goddamn snow (as seen on the picture! )

Cheers, Chris

Nope. Only 98-99 need them.

Okay, that's good to know. Also, upper roller - remove? I don't know what has been done to the bike, as when I got it it has had SO many parts changed. The obvious things are easy to see, but for instance when looking into changing the headlight, I noticed that it was already unusually white and bright - possible already changed.
Might tear it apart to see what has been done - you always need to know your bike!

Cheers, Chris!

The one thing I noticed on your bike is that it doesn't have any fork protection except those ludicrous shields. You'd be better off putting gaiters back on. The yellow ones are a nice touch. ;)

In my experience those yellow gaters get pretty dirty but maybe new ones would be OK. Fork skins are another option.

Renazco Racing, hands down the most comfortable. It's a true CUSTOM seat.
