NOVEMBER 2014 / DIRT BIKE 85
The 2Tall kit helps make a machine designed to fit a
5-foot- 8 rider layout perfectly for a 6-foot- 2 or taller pilot.
One of the big questions we got hit with was, “But how will
it affect the cornering? If I’m tall in the saddle, I won’t be
able to stay low and rail the ruts.” What we’ve found more
often than not is that the taller guy can’t get forward on
the tank anyway. With his knees squeezed closed,
and with knee braces, it’s common for the taller pilot
to sit back farther on the machine, which inherently
works against proper cornering technique.
The parts you get in the kit are a tank riser, handlebar
clamps, radiator mounts, new subframe mounts, muffler hanger, an airboot extension, and a gaggle of glues,
hardware and directions to help you with fitment.
The 2Tall kit works with the stock cables, but you
do need to pay attention to their routing. Most
of the bolt-ons are pedestrian and just require
common sense. The airboot extension (
necessary since the whole subframe gets raised and
is farther from the throttle body)
needs to be silicone-sealed
in place (they provide it).
The subframe risers are
machined out of billet
and fit perfectly. The
handlebar clamp is very

The 2Tall clamp raises the bars dramatically, yet allows for the
proper lines from the saddle and footpegs to engage a pilot
who is 6 to 7 inches taller than the “normal” rider.
The tank spacer maintains the flow from the saddle through
the tank, and 2Tall has a sano new mounting system for the
radiator shrouds, which, too, are taller.
The subframe risers are CNC-machined
and bolt up perfectly. You use a combination of stock hardware and supplied
fasteners from 2Tall.
Use silicone seal (supplied) on the
extender to fit the airbox boot.
The new muffler hanger keeps the
exhaust position stock, yet lets it fit the
new taller subframe.
