A friend of mine is looking to buy a used 2000 YZF 426. Besides the usuall listening for funny engine noises and wheel bearings and fork seals what can you guys tell us about this bike. How are trannys holding up on older bikes etc.. This supposedly has a rebuilt engine. Thanks

The 00 is a great bike. Give a good look-see and check for the obvious... if you don't find anything glaring wrong I wouldn't hesitate to buy it. Some of the 426's had issues with blown 4th and 5th gears, but it's hit and miss. Good luck!
