The main difference between 01/02 on a WR 426 is
Front hub slightly larger
Slightly tweaked rear suspension
and that is about it, the bikes look almost identical. The 02 WR426 that we sell now seem to be coming road ready with indicators and full lighting kit, they look rather odd like a sheep in wolfs clothing when you get them up to their tanks in glug until you crack the throttle and let the roost fly!!!

I think there is a world of difference between a 400 + 426. My WR426 would eat my old WR400, with lots more mid range power

in australia we have the WR 250F, WR 400F and the WR 426F. it is most likely in europe too as the classes for the enduro's follow 251cc and under 4 stroke, 251cc to 401cc 4 stroke and 401cc and above 4 stroke, they have retained the wr 400f so that yammie can run 3 bikes in the classes therefore keep more people happy.
