A CR hi bend and fat bar adapters to stock clamp would be adequate for your stand up riding height.
If you stayed with standard 7/8 bars, them I wuold recommend a KX high bend instead.
You will not be disappointed spending the extra nickels to go fat bars. The added flex and durability are worth it.
Going to fat bars also requires you to consider your hand guard mounts if you run them.
Renthall often includes a handy chart providing the length, rise and sweep measurements for the different bends if you want to know. Pro Taper also has this. You can find this on websites that carry their bars, or their home site as well.
Good luck, God's speed

The pullback on the CR bend is nice...comfortable while standing or sitting like the YZ bend

Go with the Renthal Carmichael High Bend. I am 6' and they fit me perfect on my '05 with a Scotts clamp. The rear sweep is less than the CR High and are comfortable sitting and standing. If you end up running a sub mount they may be to high, but then you can run the Carmichael Mid Bend which are excellent also.
I'm also 6ft and I switched to the Renthal 7/8 RC bend (part #971-XX) on the stock mounts following a recommendation on TT and they are perfect for me for woods riding.
Also they are the standard bars on the KX450F and CR450F according to this table:
If you go with a particular bend in the Renthal table, make sure when you order you check the Renthal part# since I've seen some stores incorrectly name a type of bend and the part# did not match the Renthal table.
