The '00 426 was not noted for valve problems, but keep in mind that this bike is nearly 7 years old now...

I have had my oo 426 since new. Raced it in a few mx and harescrambles races, trail ridden alot over the years. This bike will go down in history as the best bike i ever owned. (although I am impressed so far wiyh my 06 250F) Other than routine maint. one valve adjustment, clutch plates replaced once, thats it. OH, replaced a bunch of rear tires. :ride:
