I recently got a 2001 WR426 that was halfway converted to a YZF. Well the plastics and got rid of light at least. I took it to the track last weekend had no problems through the turns and climbing the steep hills but wasn't able to really get any air on the jumps. I was maintaining the same amount of speed as lot of the other riders but only landing half as far. Do you have to preload the suspension? Should the suspension be soft or stiff for the track? It set up pretty soft now. Any suggestions? Thanks,
Much, much stiffer.

My bike would do about 60 feet but if the landing was sketchy - it was never pretty - the WR suspension is valved too soft - something that will always limit you.
I'm converting my wr into a yz this winter - YZF suspesion, tank, seat, I've got all the mods done on the bike and it's geared really nice for what I like to ride, so it'll now be able to jump better/further/safer as well and the conversion cost me next to nothing.
