Any other tall R6 riders in here? One of the reasons I didn't get a 250 as my first bike is my height. I'm 6'4 and I feel a little too big for the R6 but surprisingly its not that bad. Having a couple cramps here and there though. Just wondering if any other tall dudes have found any ways to make themselves fit better on the bike.

im 6'3 and worried that i was a little too big for the 03 r6 when i got it..but it fits me ok. if you sit where your cocks against the tank, then it kind of helps your back..but it really dosent feel right stearing wise. im sure you have long arms along with the height..so use those lol.

Im 6'8" and i feel a little bit akward on my 00 r6. I found out running street figther style and adjusting the handle bars til they are straight with each other helps too.

Wow. You sir are a brave man getting on not just a bike but a 600 at your height.

6'2" (not sure if you consider that tall) but I feel fine on mine. Never drove anything other than a Yamaha so not sure what it feel like on any other 600...

im 5'10 too and it isn't that bad! I'm not tippy toeing and I'm not leaned to one side... i'd say im about half an inch from flat footing... there are some stop lights where the ground is a bit uneven where i can flat foot though! :) haha
