Does "Blokes" mean something like "You cool United States Dudes?"
I am STILL planning on a trip to OZ, was a couple of years ago to meet Mitch the Mysterious out of Melborne.

process for 426 is same as for the 250. see the link below, and i have but one tip: GET IT REALLY CLEAN UNDER THE TANK *BEFORE* YOU TAKE THE CAM COVER OFF! wash the bike with the gas tank off, and then wrap "saran wrap" (plastic food wrap) around the down tube and around both radiators. you can't help but bump the wires/cables on the downtube when you take the cam cover off, and dirt will fall right into your shiny new engine. ack!
the whole process takes about:
-- 30min, if you know exactly what you are doing
-- 45min, me.
-- 1 hour, if you take your time, work with extreme care, and drink a beer at the halfway point.
-- 6.5 hours, if you drop the "C"-clip exhaust cam retainer into the engine.

Be careful with your waranty. I thought someone at this site had a problem and that they wouldn't waranty it because it had been changed to yz timing. But I think it was because of the dreaded retainer clip dropping into the abiss. I yz timed mine and love it. This is pretty easy to do if you wanted to do it your self.
