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.

Question

I plan to purchase a XC this week and I am lining up my Farkles.

I want to add the Highway Dirt Bike handguards and wind deflectors and contacted Paul, who indicated he did not know what size bar clamp is needed.

Anyone able to help out with the part numbers/sizes?

Also, will the Motech bar risers work? Or do you need the Rox risers? Is one preferred over the other.

TIA

As far as I know, you have to use Rox risers.

It'll be interesting to see what they've learned in a year's time, and how they might shape my seat differently from the way they shaped yours. I tend to sit about 2 -3 inches from the back of the seat, so assuming they have that area dished and leveled properly it should be pretty good.

OEM Fog/Aux lights

I know they aren't the best but just wondering what those who have the OEM auxiliary lights think of them. Illumination? Durability?

IMO, they really help visibility. I'm a fan and keep them on.

Don't know where you got that opinion from. They are fecking brilliant, although pricey. Mine are nearly 18 months old now & never a problem.

They are quite bright actually. I bought them only to be seen better and everyone I ride with says they have no problem seeing me. Haven't had a problem, it's been just over a year.

Long shot, but....

A) Does anyone have any pictures from the rear of the hepco Becker pannier racks? Curious how far it sticks out on left.

B) longer shot. Any pictures of hepco junior bags mounted?

Thanks
