I need a straight up answer here. All I want is to change up my WR's timing , so that it behaves a bit more like the YZ. I want it to rev a bit quicker, due to me riding a bit more MX this year. Do any of you guys have the step by step, or maybe a link where I can get the info? Thanks!

You need to scroll down to the middle of the page, and youll find it. Im not sure if it is the same on the 2001 WR426, though.

I noticed it was written for a "99". Is the procedure and cam setting the same for my 01?

The 99's were not the same, so since the 2001's were, the numbers must have changed. I am having it done by my mech next week, and he will give me all the info, so as soon as I get it, I will post it.

i just did the timing change on my wr250f, the process is basically the same for the wr426f. in any case, look here (and the link on DRN that's referred to): http://www.thumperta...TML/000701.html
for some tips, especially the part about the saran wrap.

fundamentally if a) you know how to use a torque wrench and :) can keep track of the "c" clip bearing retainer, you got it made.

Do you think you can forward it to my E-mail address. I don't want to miss it because I am going to be working on my bike soon. You know, the usual like get rid of those crummy stock bars,and dump the oil. Please send to
