Looking at upgrading to a newer Cat this year. Currently have an 06 crossfire 700 with adjustable handlebars. I have never been able to stand and feel comfortable steering as I'm 6'6" 250lbs. Any advise on years or makes? Lots of ditch bangin with some trails

taller risers and seats are about all really you can do
but the chassis from an 06 to new 12-13+ will also be much better suited for stand up riding!

I would alkso make sure any shocks on sled are up to the task of your size and weight, as being taller your going to have more effect on leverage, and NOT just weight alone!, so having shocks set up for YOU< will get you the best handling and ride

BUT good shocks ain;t cheap?

My friend is also about 6'4 and he finds the same problem when looking for a new sled. It is his biggest concern, but he finds most rides have enough legroom for his liking.
