Please advise the following:

1. Gearing? 50?
2. Sag? 95MM?

Im running 756s, Tapers with a applied rubber
clamp. All MX ride/race.

Thanks in advance.

Coolhand, how do you like this compared to your 400? 95-100mm sag is right on. 49 tooth works for most of the tracks you & I ride on. The tighter tracks like "the ridge" a 50 tooth would be better, but you won't be unhappy with either. What is your weight? If over 160lb you will notice harshness in the forks as the oil heats up. I went to .47springs in the forks w/100-95mm oil height. What happened to the Xtrack??????

I have yet to "Wring" out the 26, I will let
you know how it goes. Im 185 naked with a
Med-Rex in my hand. I have MX-Tech fork
and shock mods on the 400 so I may switch
them out. 49? hmmmm...I'll try it.
The bike came with a FMF CDI box with a
bar mounted switch. Going to try that out.
X-track is done due to some crazed horse
loving wacked out 12 pack of milk dud eating
Rosie Odonell watching skank.

LOL That's hilarious, sorry to hear bout the track.

On my 01 426 I have done the following with good results:

1) Rubber mounted Tag Bars
2) 50 tooth rear sprocket
3) I set my sag at 4 in.
4) Fork oil height 110mm

So did you buy the bike used, what is up with the switch?

I got the bike with maybe 30 minn on it.
It came with a HYD clutch and two sets
of 756s, new-in the bag set of 100% tank
stickers, Tag bars and clamps and some
carbon fiber stuff. Will not tell you how
much because it would make you sick....
*less than $4500--------

Why did I switch? well I have loved the 400
but the engine response of the 01 is sweet.
And I was going to buy a 02 but with BNG
and no big changes why?

Hold it wide..
