I Like Water and Mud
Posted January 23, 2001 - 05:50 AM
I have read a lot of great stuff on this site in the past few wks since I found it but 1 topic I have not seen yet is how is the old big blue 2000 yz 426 when it comes to water and I mean lots of water I live in Minnesota and can find a lake on just about every trail ride were we go and we do like to see who can go the "deepest sometimes" not that much but the trails in the spring time are full of water and mud and I just love that type of rideing along with the hot dry stuff to. Any tips would be great
thanks in advace

Do not try to retart in deep water if you stall. The crankcase breather tube will draw water in on the piston's upstroke. Get the vent tube higher than the water first.
There are posts on how to route the breather tube up high on the bike for this situation. Clark had a good setup he posted.
