Does anybody know what was changed as far as frame, suspension, etc happened in between a 1998 YZ400 and a 2002 YZ426?
I know the motors are different but what else changed? Is it going to be a completely different bike or are they going to be somewhat the same aside from the motor?

Does any body have either of these bike? If so what do ya think?

I don't think there are any major changes just minor updates. Not sure about the frame but as far as suspension goes it's the same with just different settings inside. Maybe different shim stacks?
