Have your suspension done by MX Tech and have Eric Gorr build you a 420. If you (and I) can get the accelerator pump working like a 2001, it will be better than a 2001. It is now customed to you.
I have to go with the 420 (~$350) due to some cylinder damage. I had muddy water get sucked into my head vent tube, which damaged the cylinder. Eric is going to give me the setup he does to the vent line.
Unless there is a real reason to get the 2001, save your money. I was beating '96 CR250 Honda's with an "Outdated" '91 CR250. I had my cylinder ported (by Eric) for increased bottom, and had the suspension revalved by Factory Connection. The bike was fabulous. I know I could beat any 2001 mx bike with my 91.
Just food for thought, that's all.
'99 WZ with all YZ mods, FMF PowerBomb header, Stroker SX-1 silencer, SS front brake line, forked over by Pro-Action, OEM YZ tank and IMS seat.

Are you in Utah? If so, where do you ride? I live in Springville.
I just picked up an '01 426 (from AZ while on Thanksgiving break) and it is the first WR i've owned. I have been breaking it in slowly, but ready for some good rides now.

Check out Carbon Emery Honda/Yamaha in Helper, UT. That's where I've bought my last three bikes including my '00 WR400 last year at a very good price. Talk to Tom.
Rod, you and Craig should hook up with my brothers and I and do some rides down south in the San Raphael Swell or Moab. We're planning a ride in the next week or so.
Good Luck! Chris

I hope I haven't broken any taboos by suggesting this and depriving my local guys out of buying the 426, but hey, I have a '00 400 in the garage... no problems... first come first serve.
even with shipping and the like, you might still come out ahead.

yep no problem... is it worth a several day ride to come north and snag a non-U.S. model. I think so. My folks were snowbirds and used to make the Calgary to Pheonix run -oneway- in 2.5 days. You might want to check the dreaded VIN number before you make the trip though. It would suck to get back home to find you'll never be able to street-mod the beast. (it's a non-issue for me )
Here's a few links in order of preference.
Bow Cycle 403-288-5421 http://www.bowcycle.com
(they were the best deal in town last year)
(their over the telephone price was $7500 CAN)
Walt Healy 403-250-8630 http://www.walthealy.com
Pro-Am Motorcycles 403-277-0099
Blackfoot Motorcycles 403-243-2636 http://www.blackfootmotorsports.com
(largest least-friendly shop/warehouse in Calgary. Their over the telephone price was $7850 CAN)
There ya go. If you think you are closer to British Columbia I can dig up a few more names. As for the taxes, you can get a refund for the canadian taxes you pay... but you might have to re-pay them when you register in your state. .. who knows...
good luck. It's nice to at least have these number in your pocket when negotiating with your local dealer. .. but these bikes are very much in demand here as well. it is a sellers market.
