I'm almost a poet. LOL
Give your bike a good break in, change the oil straight up, perform your free mods and rip it up!
Cut throttle stop to 23mm, lose the baffle and the airbox lid, cut or remove your grey wire from the connector.
Some folks say that cutting the blue wire is another good mod, I read stuff both ways on that mod and never did it.
I did the BK for the price of a sixpack.
I've yet to do the YZ timing or the jetting and my bikes pull hard and seem to have reasonably acceptable jetting.
Being at sea level probably helps.
If you like big heavy metal motorcycles, your gonna love this bike.

I just did the same thing, a brand new 426 is in the garage. There are lots of ways to improve this bike. But right now, I feel that I'll have enough of anything for a while, even in stock form.
Have a good ride

I did the same as you did, sold the KDX200 and bought a WR426F 2001. I have to say that I'm totally with Sylvain on that one. Take the time to get used to your bike. There is a lot to discover even if it is still stock. Anyway, it is already much more powerfull than your kdx200 was...
Mine is still stock except for the baja design street legal lightning kit, new jetting and air filter lid removed, and as I don't race, I'm planning to keep it like this for a little while at least.

Anyway, good luck with the new ride and have fun. You'll love how it'll leave all your two-smoke buddies choking on your dust. They'll never keep up.
