are any of you kxf/rm-z riders on the tall side, about 6'2" or so? if so how does the riding position feel. do you feel cramped? did any of you guys do any mods to make the bike feel like there is more room? i cant decide on which bike i should get, its between the kxf and crf 250, im kind of concerned i might be cramped of the kxf, im 6'2" tall and weigh 175lbs.

I'm almost 6'2 and I weigh 157 (while wearing a suit of armor in the rain) and the bike feels good to me. I have long arms though, I 'm sure that makes a difference. I haven't had a lot of seat time so take that into account.

Here is a picture of me standing over the bike. Click Me
There are about 2 inches between the top of the seat and me.

Trythis Lonewolf. The bike is completely stock. Maybe once I learn more about riding I will find that my position is all off and I'll end up with riser bars or something like that.

I wish it was an 85 Russ, that means I would have more skill when I get a big bike! :laugh:

im almost same size as you, and only thing i noticed when i sat on the bike was how good it felt, its probably the best sitting bike in the 04 bike line up.
