Hey-
Long time lstener first time caller.

How high can the seat go on a Tiger? I am 6'6" and currently ride an XR650L. It was fifteen years between bikes for me and I wanted something very nimble off road and street legal.

For my next bike, I want a 2000- 2006 Tiger.

How high can it go with the standard adjustments?

Is there a modification that can be made to make the seat or the whole bike taller?

I'm 6'5'', long legs, inseam 36''. Tiger's seat is adjustable about 2 cm. If it's at top position, my feet are comfortably flat on the ground. My buddy who is 6'4'' also rides one and he is tip-toeing it at intersections. You'll love it. It's one of the tallest bikes around.

While riding, my legs aren't uncomfortably crunched either. I've only had the bike for 3 months now, so 450 miles is the longest day I've had. No problems with excessive fatigue. Touartech has motocross style foorpegs that move them about 1'' loer and forward. I'm waiting for them to make the bike even more comfortable.

Bottom line - Tiger's as good as as a motorcycle gets for a vertically unchallenged person!
