I was waiting for a back ordered kit that was supposed to be in towards the end of July, now their website is off-line and they have not responded to email or messages.

I bought a KTM just so I could fit one of their kits. Almost 2 months overdue, I’m about to throw in the towel and just sell the bike.

Anybody know WTF is up with those guys?

You might struggle to find another bike that fits taller riders as well as a ktm.

They make a replacement oem gripper seat 20mm and 35mm taller

Rad mfg. did the same thing when they went out of business. I got stuck with a wheel set that had incorrect spacers.

Speaking of that. I have a set of Rad hubs that need spacers for. Any idea where to get them?

I’m with ya Spartacus. I’m 6’8” and it’s always been a struggle. I’m going to try the fastway pegs next. A buddy of mine sent me a photo from the Nevada 200 this year of a basketball player with a 2 Tall kit. Looks a little goofy but man I would love to have a bike that actually fits me!

Some how someday they need to figure out a way to make a bike to work for a 5 foot person and with a few mods make it fit a 7 foot person. I am no engineer but some how it has to be done .

My wife would ride a lot if she had a bike to fit her that was not just complete junk. Hell,I know 60 year old men that don't get to ride cause they cannot find a bike that fits them short or tall.

14-17 Yamaha 250 or 450 will be your best bet for your height. I’m 6’7 & I’ve always found that era of Yamaha’s to be the most comfortable. Massive shame they ruined it for us taller guys by making the bike smaller/thinner with the current model.

this was the idea behind two tall racing, since bicycles came in different frame sizes, why didnt motorcycles,

there was not enough sales to keep it viable tho,

Have you ridden a TM? They’re the roomiest, tallest bikes out there. I’m 6’5, was 6’7 before I broke myself off last year and I felt instantly comfortable on any aluminum framed TM. Stock bars, pegs and seat. The height is a common complaint when the mags test them.

I’m selling my 7 hour old 17 300MX 4stroke, I’m done with moto, if you’re interested.

What did 2Tall Racing offer? Lowered foot pegs that were dropped back a few mm? No matter where you add height it seems like you're trading off somewhere. Higher seat sucks because it hurts you're handling. Lower pegs suck because they you drag ruts and corners easier.

They have a kit that lifted the entire chassis.... tank seat rear fender 2 inches. That’s a hell of a lot different than a high seat and 4 mm lower pegs

If you send me a PM and we can get some dimensions I could either whip some spacers up for you or I could get you in touch with my buddy to make them.
