Yes, I know Suzuki and Seat Concepts make taller seats (I have both, both are good). I think Sargent also makes a tall seat?

Corbin also would make you a 'Tall' seat.

On my old ZRX1200 I was able to 'make' a tall seat by using a Bead Rider and placing black closed cell foam underneath. It also allowed me to adjust the foam to 'fatten' the profile to prevent sliding forward.
NOTE: I'm 6'5"

If you haven't already done it, think about Ricks footpeg lowering kit. I'm 6'1" and found thats all I needed on my 1000. I do just enough offroading that having all the ability to reach the ground(On uneven surfaces) helps. The taller seat would have hindered that.

I like to stretch the old (70 this years) knees out. I installed Rick's peg lowering kit and had Terry Adcox build a seat 1" higher and 1" back. Works great! I'm 6' and 32" inseam.

61 and 34 inseam. I added the Adventuretech peg lowering kit with gearshift extender and the OEM tall seat. Ergos are now much better. I imagine there are more comfortable seat options but Im happy with results so far

I just got Suzuki tall but haven't had a chance to use it yet. Price wise best option I think.

picked it up today with no time to compare it yet. First look it seems to be wider and taller. When installed on the bike I noticed so far that there is more room to move back and forward. I got it used (like new in fact) but the tag on plastic bag says $229.
