250 2ts for taller riders

Recommended Posts

Are any of the late model Jap 250 2ts more suited to taller riders than others?

 

I'm 6ft3 and currently on a 12 KX450 which fits like a glove from factory with its adjustable options, would love something similar to that. Have had a RM250 and was never super comfortable on that even with higher bars, just still felt a bit cramped for my liking.   

 

Who else is around that height, and what bike feels most comfortable for you?

I'm 6'2", I ride a YZ250 with a short riser/adapter for Renthal Twinwalls (CR High). I feel pretty comfortable on my bike, I've yet to be in a situation where I feel cramped. I believe the YZ seat height is a couple inches taller than the RM, but I'm not positive. The YZ seat height is 39.1inches, if that helps. There are linkage kits you can get to raise the rear a bit, and forks can be adjusted a bit within the triple clamps, but you're only looking at a couple inches rise really.
