How to buy a used WR426F?
Posted May 27, 2005 - 01:13 PM
Test rode my first one last night on little streep strip and the power just did not impress me at all!? It's supposed to have much more power than the XR400? The bike was '01 and by looking at the bike had not been ridden hard. So, what can be wrong or are there some easy mods that the owner had not done. He didn't mention anything so maybe he doesn't know?
Any tips would be appreciated or please point me to a link where this may have already been answered.

My buddy has a wr400 and i bought one also. His was jetted all wrong and the previous owner of my bike spent the time and dialed mine in. They were the same bike on paper, but it was like a cr125 vs cr 250. When spent a day getting his to run and it made a HUGE difference.
I haven't ridden an xr400, but I have got to believe a wr426 would spank it if you got rid of "stock" wr settings and set it up to run like it should.
The factories do so much just to get them to pass smog and then we have to fix them to run!!!

Like others said, it will spank an XR400 like a red headed stepchild. It's closer in acceleration to an XR650R.
