Hey RC,
About six months ago I was looking at sargent seats and you told me to with Carbon FX, or DTX? I can't remeber.

Dtx, for sure. The carbon fx looks like a carbon fiber weave. It's easy to scratch, and its halfway slick. The dtx is more like a sandpaper like finish. Although it's not THAT rough, it's more durable and I prefer it, 10,000 times over.

I think I'll send my c14 seat in and have it switched over to dtx. It's that good. The c14 and zx14 use the same sargent seat pan. It's a good seat, although the stock zx14 seat isnt bad at all. I have one as my third seat.

Sargent separates the rider from the passenger section with an open space. Instead of wasting it, they have a small storage compartment that's perfect for paperwork. Its clever as hell.

It's a really good second seat. The stock seat is sort if soft and cushy. The sargent is more solid. I do wish I would have asked for an extra inch of foam in both of mine. Neither the zx14 or ninja is a tall bike. I think Sargent catered more to the beginners who think they need both feet down to ride. If your not like that, think about asking for extra foam.

Actually I ordered that for the NInja 1000. II never took it out of the box and I couldn't remember what I ordered so I asked RC. I am sure I ordered what rc recommended. So I can sell it.

I'd buy it from you if it didn't have the green trim. And no, I would not sniff the seat.

Mark, that's good. I was going to say you need to try the zx14 seat before replacing it. The Sargent is better, but it's not like the before and after with the ninja. When they spend more money building the bike, it gets better seat foam, too.

I think kawasaki has sold so many that the value is about zero. It's funny because this old 2500 bike is a better machine than the 2020....although the differences are very small.

I always like it when this bike gets compared to the ninja. It's like, "why?" Its a 2500 bike. Maybe mine is worth 2537.00, with abs? At that price, it's worth having if you only use it as your passenger bike.

Look at this bike. Build it, as is, but skip the low bars. Maybe have a taller windshield built. Perfect adult size sportbike.

Uno any 12 year old bike with 690k on the clock is going to be cheap. The zx was a good deal. RIDE IT THIS WEEKEND!!!

wheelies, wot, burnouts, stoppies, and 150 miles. Throw in a ride by shooting while you're at it. We will accept nothing less.

You always think of men, so why is this time strange? :ROFLMAO:
Oh that's cute.
Does it seem strange that you project your gay sexual fantasies on others. No?
You do know acceptance is the first step in getting help...... that is unless you like being gay. If that's the case then more power to you

Avi, we know it might be rough on you fighting the need to come out at your age, and thus all this major denial and all the deflection, but know that we're all behind you on this... not physically, calm down... but here to support you in your time of transition... And if me thinking you're gay is a fantasy? Why yes it is... the endless hours of insults I can unleash is absolutely the stuff of fantasy 😀

You're getting Freddie Mercury's face tattooed on your butt right now aren't you? Good thing you don't know what I look like :ROFLMAO::LOL:
