I have been out of the riding world for a few years now and really wanted to get back into it. My first bike (18yrs ago) was an 88 YZ125 fully raced out and really fast for a beginner’s bike, however once I learned how to ride I rode this bike into the ground. I then wanted to upgrade so I bought a brand new 2002 KDX 200 and rode that until 2011 when I sold it. I remember looking at these YZ 426’s back in 2002 when I bought my KDX but it was like $2k more than I paid for the KDX. The KDX worked great and I really enjoyed it, but I wasn’t riding it much at all so I sold it and have been missing it every day.
I love this new (to me) bike, it flat out rips! I ride mostly woods so I did order a heavier flywheel and 13 tooth sprocket for it. Anyway sorry for the long post, just excited and cannot wait until spring!
