yeah thats the site i was working from, i got it from one of your old posts. maybe the guy i called makes more $ boring or resleeving the old cylinder than supplying a new one but he seemed certain it wouldnt fit.
i have found another supplyer in victoria here who can bore and electrosil(nicasil) the bore and am waiting for some quotes to come back.
I'm going to go the 426 option and during my research i found this site but something seems a little um not quite right.... not sure.
bit dodgy on sending over $1000 on an unknown.

here is quote
note that all info was sent on the same day and the first one to reply was in japan. ok it was a public holiday here but we will see how long good aussie service takes.
seems pretty competitive but we will wait and see compared to local suppliers.

i have learned through research on here and through various yamaha 'people' that the small end is weak and that the 426 rod will eliminate this problem.
the 400 has plenty of power for me too, but i'm after long term reliabilty and the extra 26 cc cant hurt in sand and in the case of low end putting around.
besides my mates have 450 without yz timing and a 426 with yz timing should see me eating a rock or two less maybe.
I just wish i was able to keep it a secret to surprise them, but its too exciting to keep under wraps that long.
I just recieved a quote from a local supplier and it is twice as much as the prices quoted from jap supplier.
