Ways to stiffen up the suspension, more pre-load in the shocks in the rear skid, heavier spring. Ways to raise the handle bars, biggest you can go without putting new cables on is putting a 3" bar riser which can be found anywhere. Ways to increase HP, pipes, clutching, reeds, thin head gasket, transfer rods, a good site to get into is Totallyamaha.net the best Yamaha forum.

If that is still running the Pro Action skid...get rid of it...especially for someone your size.
Cheap way to get a more aggressive profile is to loosen the handlebar risers & rotate them forward. You'll have to adjust the brake lever & throttle block to fit. I was very surprised what it did for me. I couldn't see a 2" riser making a big difference so I tried this first. Hands are a good 2" higher & forward...more outreached instead of down low like you said. ^^^^^What he said about TY.
