see if SDG do a tall seat for the 05
I have one on my 01 and it's great, also keeps my girlfriend off my bike as she cant touch the ground :)

All I can offer is, most tall riders I know get the "tall seat" and a "footpeg lowering kit" and change out the bars to suit a taller rider. :D

Other than that I cant help ya. I do know that installing a longer shock messes with the geometry of the bike some. I have no first hand experience with extended shocks so don't know how it affects the handling :)
