Nice ride!

How much taller is the Sargent Seat over stock?

Because the sides of the seat are thicker, it feels about 2" higher when stopped with my feet on the ground. When riding, I feel about 1/2" lower in the seat.

Is the seat way more comfortable than the stock seat?

Thanks, Guys.

I have ilmberger "street" carbon pieces. The belly pan is a single piece and is made for stock cat and the stock sidestand.

The Sargent seat IS way more comfortable than the stock seat. It very naturally keeps me about 3" back off the tank without any effort and I can slide back or off to the side as needed with no problem.

Does the Akra slip on require any further tuning like a full system does, or is it basically a stock exhaust with a sexy can & sound?

From my homework reading plenty on this forum, it looks like about 95% visual / cool looking with pretty much the same sound as the stock can. Little bit of weight savings. I did the exhaust valve mod which beefed up the sound below 5Krpm as a little bonus.

No further tuning required. Bolt it on and go.
