Hey,
I'm looking at the WR/YZ serious, and was wondering about the 250 vs. 400, vs 426. I notice they made a 400F for a few years starting in 1998?, and then stopped.
Why? :) Is the 426 almost same as the 400 or what? Personally, after reading all of the discussion about the 426 being too much, and the 250 not being enough, it seems that 400 makes sense.
Comments?

Currently 100% Honda in my basement, but definitely looking blue right now.

426 is pretty much the same as the 400. The 426 just has a lot more ass. Its also a bit more refined than the early 400's were.

They still make the 400, they just don't sell it in the US anymore. In Australia, where the 250 class can run 4 strokes only up to 400cc, they still sell it there. Learned it from TT.

You can buy them in Canada also. I thought I heard of some one ordering one through his state side dealer.

They might still sell those babies over here but no-one buys 'em because 426 guys know they can smoke 400. No replacement for displacement mate. :) :D
