I have a 33 inch inseam and the stock seat is to low for me and also I am almost sitting on the tank especially under hard braking. What seat can should i get that will be a little taller?

the sargent and corbin seats are sculpted in a way that doesn't drop you crotch-first into the tank when braking.
me? i've still got the stocker on. i'm surrounded by ball-busters so mine are like iron anyways. ha!
actually, i'm considering bringing my seat to a furniture apholsterer to get it resculpted. a local guy i know got his done for about $50 or so and digs the results.

FAST_MONSTER,

The problem with the stock seat IMO, isn't the height, but the shape.

FAST_MONSTER,

I had my seat dished out in the back by Corbin, actually to a point lower than stock, and widened slightly at the same time.

I have a Dark, which didn't come with a seat cowl, so I'm not sure about fit. The seat cost $250 from Corbin, and I rode into their Hollister plant to have to custom made.

Being 6'2 with almost a 36" inseam, aside from the
stock seat issue I often felt too compacted.

I've got a Sargent seat and the first thing I noticed from the stock was how much longer the bike felt. I end up sitting futher back and like Strati said you stay off your balls better.

Briefly put, the Sargent will solve your problem, not sure about the Corbin but probably will also. Been there done that. 6'2", 185.
