You can buy a 444cc big bore kit for the 426. That's only 5cc smaller than the real thing. However, you should think about something:

A complete rebuild back to stock can cost as much as $1500-2000 just for parts and sublet labor. 2006 YZ450's are all over the place for under $3K these days.

You're going to grind your own valve seats?

Luke's Racing makes good quality kits at a good price.

My price estimate still holds. At the end of spending ll that time and money, you'll have a YZ426 that will be heavier, slower, not handle as well, and have inferior suspension compared with something you could have just gone out and bought. Think about it
