Ive been out of Dirtbike riding for quite a while (27 years) had some street bikes in between but got the calling again when I got an invitation to borrow a bike and go riding with some friends. Recently purchased an 01 YZ426 in excellent condition. The bike is really fun to ride and I find it handles well. My only concern is messing around in the woods it seems to require a lot of clutch feathering. I'm 5-11 168 lbs. The PO modified with a 50 tooth rear sprocket which is 1 tooth more than the stock 49. Anyone out there with a 51 or 52 tooth rear sprocket and how do you like it? Did you have to add a link or 2 of chain to accomodate? Thanks.
