I'm working on some graphics for a YZF426 and realized I don't have the template listed in my database.

Does the tank graphic for the YZF400 for years 1998 - 2002 fit a 2001 YZF426? What year range is compatable if it's a match?

If not I could use some help finding either the template or a tracing of the tank.

yz400f and yz426f are identical when it comes to body and tank.

I'm about 98% sure they are the same. I just ordered a graphics kit for my 426 and when ordering it said for 98-02 400/426. hope that helps.

Thanks for verifying that one for me. The years, makes, models and variations within the models gets dizzying from time to time!!!!

Ah its not that bad.
98-99 YZ 400
00-02 YZ 426, same plastic and frame as 98-99
03-05 YZ 450, Gen 1
06-09 YZ 450, Gen 2 (aluminum frame)
10-?? YZ 450 Gen 3

WR's are a bit different though.
