Sure, the 450's are sweet, especially the button, but for $2700 I can make that 426 rip up a stock... Anything!
Unless you really need the button, snag it on the cheap and enjoy the heck out of it!

I found a dealer with a new still in the crate 426 that he is willing to let go for $4300. Is that a good deal?
I would jump at it, I paid 4,200 for mine USED. I have a bunch of aftermarket stuff on it but still.....

First thing I did was take it into the shed and do all the mods such as 450 cam, JamesNow!, lowered footpegs, chainslider etc... as well as my own such as brake snakes, polishing a few bits and pieces, some grease fittings and some goodies like ProTapers, steering dampener (salvaged from the bike I sold...) CR brake line and polished bracket, changed fluids...
After a couple of nights in the shed, I rolled her out and have been very happy... I do need to invest some time in jetting and suspension setup, but the core mods were done in a few hours...
You will have a sweet toy when the snow does melt...

He gave me 20% off all items in the store not any more off the bike. I went out the door spending $4300 for the bike and another $800 on gear at 20% off (so I would have spent $1000 on gear)
and no he doesn't have any more. It was kind of weird how it all worked out because the day I called he had just "found" this bike in the dark depths of his store. I just happend to be the first person to call and ask about any bikes that he may have. Lucky me!!!

That's a great deal. OTD prices in '02 were about $7000.
WOW!!! Whoever paid that amount I feel sorry for
I paid 5700 OTD in 7/02 for my 426
$4200 is even better, buy it you won't regret you did
