Go to www.Powroll.com, This is pasted from it, they got pretty cool kits.


YZF & WR 400

These first-generation F's can be easily upgraded to 426cc with stock Yamaha parts -- or to 440cc's with the parts listed, plus our 2.0mm stroker listed above.

One weak point on the 400 is the smaller piston pin. Upgrading to the 426 parts gives your engine better reliability for the same (or cheaper) prices than purchasing these parts aftermarket.

You can have your 400 cylinder bored and re-nikasiled, but this process typically costs more than the $250 you'd pay for a new 426 cylinder!

To rebuild your 400 to a 426, you will need to purchase the following from your Yamaha Dealer:

Prices are quoted from Yamaha of Troy (February 2004) and are subject to change.

Your 400 crank will need to be rebuilt with the new 426 rod and needle assembly. You can have a local shop do it, or order our 440cc kit above, and we'll take these parts and make your 400 a 440!
