I'm a 6'3 guy, does anyone know of bar risers that will raise the bars and and put them more forward toward the front wheel on a 16 YZ 450.

Thanks guys. I just can't ride the dang thing standing up, I feel like the bars are under my belly. I'll try moving them forward, and if that doesn't feel good I guess new bars. Thanks again

Try the Windhams.  Standing is the best part.  They let you stand at a balance on the pegs without crowding the bars.

I switched to tag mounts that I had on my old crf. Added about 12mm of height. I know tusk makes a kit to add height also.

I'm 6'3 as well and run renthal fat bars RC High bend in the front mount holes. I always ran risers previously with stock bars but found higher bars to be more comfortable and the bike seems to handle a bit better.

i also run renthal RC high.. Get adjustable foot pegs.. I have fastway pegs.. Run them in the lowest position. I could not believe how much better it made everything. Standing up is comfortable now..

I am also about 6'1". I never bought aftermarket pegs because yamaha has had pretty decent ones for a while. But just the first ride alone i could tell a difference right away. i wouldn't bother with a tall seat. Had one on another bike and did not really like it went back to stock. Next i am adding different shift and rear brake lever both longer than stock.. 

 

This is on a '14 450

raising the bars will not make you fast... tall seat, (easier sit to stand transition), low pegs, straightest/widest bars, no risers = speed through proper riding position
