I installed (3) kits on a friends YZ426:

Swingarm kit
linkage kit
shock kit

The quality seemed at least equal to OEM. I'd go OEM IF it is cheaper.

I have used the swingarm and linkage kit before. Both have lasted well. In the future I will be more careful in removing the seals- (especially the larger plastic ones in the swingarm and the thrust bearings) reuse them and buy the individual bearings from a bearing shop. OEM are just a bit too expensive for my liking. eg $80 AUS for 1 rose bearing for the bottom of the shock!!!
