Re: Average R6 rider size

6'1" and 195lbs of pure muscle (believe that...)

Running stock suspension and had it set by a Yamaha tech. He said I'm right at the threshold of being too big for stock suspension but I should be fine.

Some freakishly tall and skinny people running around here.
Riiiggghhhtt..125lbs? I weighed more than that in the 4th grade. And I never thought I'd see someone who's 6-4 on an r6.

Lots of big riders on the 6. I am a small guy at 5' 7" 155lbs. Suspension is stock on my bike, seems fine.
