I need some advice.,i have had multiple raptors and gixxer 1000's I am new to dirtbikes.But never a mx bike. I bought a 2002 yz426 has only 139 miles on odo for 800 bucks!guy needed cash very badly .My question is this, is this too much bike to cruise around with the kids on trails.is this bike even trail capable or is it mx track only.My other question is what do i need to do to the suspension im 6ft3 and 275 .I have heard this bike is nasty.

The most important thing to do with the suspension is to change the springs to suit your weight.

I just got mine a couple weeks ago and it's perfect for running around with the kids, or serious trails. For your height I would do bar risers and drop down pegs. X2 on getting it sprung for your weight.

Been riding the 02WR since it came out. One of the best bikes out there IMO. Never had any problems with it. Take care of it and change the oil and it will last forever.
