Modifying foot pegs and seat for tall rider

I'm a tall rider and I'd like to fit on my 05 WR450 a little better. My legs are long so it feels like my legs are cramped and I can't make it to the rear foot brake very well.

I've already raised my bars up to where I like them, but I feel like I need to raise the seat and lower the foot pegs.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

I'm only 6' but still felt the same. I installed 1.5" bar risers and bought some Fastway F3 pegs. You can flip the collar on the peg and it lowers it about 1". Bike feels much better.:busted:

sdg may have a tall complete seat for the 05 already. if not they said it will be out in march of this year.

i put tall bars, race tech r spring, longer cables, taller seat (waiting on sdg) but never touched the pegs. many people recommended against it due to rocky terrain i ride.

I'm 6'3" and using a tall seat from Guts Racing. I have an '05 450 and have been using it for over two years. Its been great, but I'm about due for a new cover.

I'm 6'7" on a yz250, lowered pegs, tall seat, and tall bars. These mods are a must(IMO). Made my own low pegs and ride lots of rocks w/ no probs. I had the very same issue w/reaching the rear brake because I was so cramped up. It's all better now but I also stretched my subframe.

Agree with the others. I'm 6'3" and have an '05 450. Bar risers allowing the bars to be mounted farther forward, upright bend on new bar, Fastway pegs lowered and Gutz tall seat. It opens up the bike like you wouldn't believe.
