02 WR426 questions

There is probably not a more reliable bike out there, XR600/650's and Suzuki 400 are in the same league.
My WR's do a lot better on jumps than my KTM's and for what you described the suspension should be fine unless you are 200 pounds plus and pretty fast.
Put a tall seat on them and it smoothes out the seat/tank junction.......
Good set of handlebars, skidplate, radiator protectors, enduro-engineering barkbusters and it is pretty well indestructible

I never really had a problem with the starting drill either. I was looking for a way to tame the sometimes unpredictable mid range hit. If you use the YZ ex cam it makes the power more linear and pulls even harder top end and it makes it a lot easier to start if I stall on a hill climb
Ditto byggd, but i have yet to do the decomp mod. It is no big deal starting mine I have the combination down pat, and for some odd reason I like it..... kinda makes me feel like if not anything else accomplished for the day at least I can still start the beast....

I have a 02 wr 426 couple years now bullet proof no problems carb needed to be cleaned once other than that no problems love the bike change oil every other ride & clean air filter average ride off road 85 miles:ride:
Ditto, woodshop, bullet proog here as well, some carb problems, but nothing I didnt cause myself...lol, and was able to cure. Change the oil regularly, and ride till you die.

As far as issues, I know of none. My factory chain stretched like a rubber-band, and within 4 months needed replaced, but I think that's to be expected. Everything else has been bullet-proof.
I am going to street legalize mine here in Utah, and have no concerns. I run these fire-roads at 80+ mph without fear of hurting the motor. I change oil every three rides (about 300mi) of hard use in the dirt. Because it's a wet clutch, I wouldn't go longer than that when dirt riding, but if street/highway riding where your not using the clutch often, you can probably go much further.
