sdg makes the tallest seat.
on the yz you can flip the footpeg mount and lower it a bit. also get some bar risers. i have +10mm risers and it helps a ton

Do you know where any pics exist that detail the footpeg mod? I have an 04 Yz125 and at 6'3" I also feel cramped when sliding forward for turns. The link in the KB thread is dead.

04 whyzee I looked at my pegs today and it looks easy just take them off cut off the lower spacer on the peg then place the spacer on top of the peg switch the peg spring from the right side to the left and slide the pin back in .Ithink I will ride it for a while before I tig weld it.

What would I have to TIG weld? The spacer? The peg? I'm a bit confused.

They say you dont have to weld any thing, the piece on the bottem of the peg that the pin goes through gets cut off and moved to the top of the peg then you install springs and pins

I guess if I screw it up I can always just buy the spacer again or make my own. I'm just a little learing off cutting up anything on my brand new bike.
