Mac, I'm 5'10" and the 4" worked great. 6'+ should go with 6" stretch.

I`m the same height and the 4" are perfect especially if you have a low pro seat or stocker cut down.

What's your inseam rocket? I think the problem is that the controls are supposed to work for guys that are 5'6" and guys 6'2". The 5'6" guys have to stretch their ankles forward to get to the pedals and the tall guys will have to pull their ankles back towards them. The Guys that are 5'10" are very comfortable.
At some point in time we'll be selling a 6" version of our full forward controls which will take care of the problem you had.

IDK what my inseam is, but the problem I had wasn't the length of my legs. It was that the linkage rods were too long. I had to fabricate extensions to move the pegs and brake/gear shifters forward enough so I could use the supplied linkage rods. And the foot cramp are caused due to the pegs being mounted too narrow- ie having to point my toes toward the engine to reach the brake peg.
