This is a horsepower question. What kind of power does the '02 yz426 make stock? Just curious because I've been side by side with 450's and I always get the holeshot over them. I might add that I weigh 220lbs too. i think that might just be gearing. I've got stock, well, Renthal sprockets but same as factory teeth.

I can't wait to see what Yamaha brews up, but I hope they wait until 07 for the aluminum frame so I have a better chance of being able to get one! :naughty:

Kizzle, I Can relate. I just rode a friends 05 YZ450 this pas weekend. I would have to say that I like the power delivery and quickness of my 426 better. I will admit that the handling and suspension on the 450 is much much better. If my 426 had the suspension like the newer 450 I would probably stay with it. Couldn't tell you on the horse power but I can tell you that more horsepower doesn't mean quicker. I have proved that with my 426 against many 450 and 520's... :naughty:

You can do a search for the answer, but I believe the 02 YZ426 put out 46. This years 450 was pretty lack luster, Yamaha took a little to much away, IMO.

It was perfect for all those who crossed over from the 2-strokes, it just needed to feel lighter.

Hey NOS, my buddy does or did powerlifting. He did the bench and was l like top 5 in the world I believe for his weight. He benched close to 700 lbs. He's a tank. What events do you do?



Not strong enough to compete in my class yet. SHW, but i'm getting there.

Cool, what weight class will you be in. My buddy weighed around 200lbs and maxed out at like 670 I think. He's not a close friend but he's thick and has short arms. He played HS football but mostly got big loading kegs on to trucks as well as lifting. He's not a roid guy either.
