No it has five gears it is a wide ratio 5-speed if it is a WR motor.
All yamaha 426s are 5 speed bikes YZ or WR. The Yzf 426 has a close ratio (gears are less different to one another) transmission whereas the WR426 has the wide ratio (hence the name "WR") transmission.
Some WRs have had troubles with their fifth gear. You can make a search on this forum to get more info. This is about the only trouble that occured on the 426 models and it was rare at the most...

The YZ didn't get a 4 speed til it became a 450....ALL 426s are 5speed, regardless whether it's a YZ or WR!
All yamaha 426s are 5 speed bikes YZ or WR.
i disagree, i know for a fact the 04 450 had only 4 hears. that is why i asked
thanks for the info though guys
