Hello to all you Thumpertalk readers. I've been searching for a flywheel weight for my 01 yz426. Need one before i kill myself. Seems like every spill I had was due to my bike stalling on a rockclimb. Used okay, new better. 

 

Does anyone have one or know where I can find one?  Thanks a lot for helping.

It won't, and trading/swapping/posting ads isn't allowed in the forums.  We have a classified section for that.  If you have something to offer, use a PM.

ok, sorry....was just trying to help a guy out. wasn't really trying to sell it, in fact if nobody replied I would have probably just sent it to him to see if it worked, no charge.interesting that you don't correct the op as he technically posted an ad...no worries  tho...

The original post was asking for a source, which could as well be responded to with information regarding a commercial outlet for the part.  It could also be interpreted as a want ad, but I gave him the benefit of the doubt because of the ambiguity.  As long as it doesn't turn into a trading session in here, it's OK.

I was talkin to a parts unlimited dealer last week and he said he could still get them kinda pricey tho. Think it was $110, I don't know if you have a parts unlimited dealer close or not tho.

Anyone have any luck or advice ?

I emailed Steahly and they don't make them anymore.

Only option I can find is to get a WR400 or WR426 flywheel and stator in the hopes that it adds the right amount of inertia. Or a rekluse but that worth half the cost of my bike....

Any help would be much appreciated as I'm loving my YZ426 but need some help with the tackling the snotty stuff like the OP.

I didn't have any luck, but jet it right and put a 52t sprocket on back and you should be gold!

I have a 51t rear sprocket ready to go on, but I feel like that is not a solution to the issue. It might mean I spend a little less time at 5-10% throttle, but I don't see it helping the bike from stalling.

You guys know what also helped, allot I think.. An 18 inch rear tire..You know its all about that inertia or rotational mass..at least that what I read.

Gonna stall..clutch work and raise your idle a little more, avoid hitting that rear brake to hard/much when crawling.
