I don't want to change anything on the swinging arm as I'd just like to take one set of wheels out & pop in the others etc.
Also everybody's talking about "THE GREY WIRE", this may be a daft question but has the 2000 WR400 got one or is it just the 426's
Cheers for any info.

- 3.5" width on front
- 4.25" on rear
- heavy duty spokes and nipples
- offset the rear spokes a fraction such that you avoid chain rub.
- gearing: 15 44 is typical
- GP wet on the front

Sounds like you get through alot of rubber ! , I don't know of any realy good tyres because if you get a realy hard compound & you ride on the roads alot you'll not have as much grip etc (same theory as 'sticky' tyres on road bikes, sticky (soft compound) = better grip)), & you don't want to go 'Road surfing !' its not good for the health !. All I would surgest is to look out for another set of wheels, try looking in TBM magazine (monthly) or Trials & Motorcross (weekly), or on this site etc.
Another solution would be to buy my 1998 Wr400 (which I'm selling ), then you don't need another set of wheels !!!!
