A yz444 with 13.5:1CR piston will make close to 52HP. Check out Dirtrider.net and do a search on yz444.

Thats a lot of power from a 426, as far as I know that wouldn't even be possible without going to something like nitrous or a turbo, neither of which I believe has been made into a kit for a 426.

Didn't they only make something like 38 hp stock? You might be able to get 55 with a big bore kit and lighter, high comp pistons. But I don't think 60 horsepower is even possible on these bikes.

Tryce Welch got 60hp out of his YZ450... :thumbsup:

He might have even gotten 61hp out of it, I can't remember.

It is possible "with these motors"

easily done!

port the head, 5 angle valve job, upgrade the cams, go bigger on the carb, bigger bore. Should not be hard.

I will if your engine is good, I would recommend exchanging engines with the carbs. Is yours totaly stock Yamaha?

whats wrong with my chassis and my clutch? i dont think there is anything wrong with my marchesini wheels, penske shock, and ohlins forks.

is the 5th gear ratio in a 426 the same as 4th gear in a 450?

Typically engine builders will go through then entire engine when hopping them up. The bike "may" loose reliability as you push the limits. You should expect failure and plan ahead to avoid it.

From another JYD Post:

Worst case,
Shift drum, 1 shift fork, 2 gears, 250$ +300 labor


well it does stay in gear at least, just jumps around. "





This is the stuff I am referring to.

Have not had it on the dyno (yet) I can do it though and really am going to, just need to make some time.I do know that my Son is usually first to turn one. It does not lack for power. And, is someone insinuating that there could be transmission issues with your exchange engine? The only way I'm taking in a trade will be that I recieve and install the exchange engine and check it out first. Then I'll immediately send out my engine (I guarantee mine to be excellent and I will dyno it too )
