Hey all new guy here so go easy on me :)
Right currently riding a mt .but I'm hating wind blast and handing isn't upto much ether really. So looking at going back to sports bikes again.
Im 6ft 2 15 stone ish :)
I had k4-k5 600cc fitted fine 5 year ago
K2 1000cc fitted fine 1000cc is too much for me on road I feel I can ride smaller cc alot better so disregarding liter bike.
Sold my k4 600cc and Brought a k6 600cc and sold it 3 weeks laters as it felt so small compared to k5/4. So my question is have the l5 600cc 2015/16 have they changed from much k6 ?? If seating good for tall guy .Do any of you guys 6ft plus ride em? If so how do you find them ? Reason I'm asking here as there are none local to me to go try/sit on plus lockdown where I live
Thanks 馃槉 any help greatly received

For what it is worth, I'm 6'1" on a K6 750 and don't feel cramped. I did move the bars out as wide as they could go without hitting the fairing at full lock and moved the pegs down.

I am also 6'1" and also felt more comfortable on my K5 than the K6s I've had over the years. I could ride the K5 for several hours at a time without cramping at all. When I first got my first K6 600, I immediately noticed it felt smaller than the K5. I also noticed that it handled better.

Anyway, back to your actual question: the L5 600 I rode once felt very similar to my K6 in terms of size and handling and everything else. There wasn't nearly as much change that I could feel compared to the amount of change from K5 to K6 600s.

My K3 SV650 feels much closer in size to the K5 GSXR, though to be fair I haven't ridden a K5 in over 15 years now. But it might give you another sporty bike to consider as long as you don't want to go super fast.

Are you set on a newer bike? Why not look for another K5? That said, you can also look into adjustable rear sets and even bar risers if you want to go that route.
