Hi there,

What is the difference between a 400 and 426, in terms of power, torque etc. Also are these two bikes very different?

I had a go on an '01 426 at the weekend... gees are'nt they quick!

XR has got to go! I will be using it for enduro and mx? Any advisable mods?

What should I look for when buying a used one?

The 426 has more on the bottom end into the bottom-mid. Rev-wise, they are very close on power.

I'll go with the 426, because of the extra low and mid power, the 01 model also has Titanium Valves wich allows it to rev more freely. If you are going to race enduros you might want to install an larger fuel tank.
