How many tooth sprockets are you running now? The 426 came stock with a 14/50 combo.

I fitted a 15/50 to my 426, it stopped it screaming its bollox off on the road between trails..............made the gearing a bit high in the really tight stuff but I found it worth it.
You can always fit a 14T to the front for doing mx tracks/ enduro's etc as it only takes 15mins to change
