I have heard some rumors that the 00 YZ 426F's (which I own) are plagued with clutch basket problems. :) I know I haven't experienced any problems with my bike, but should I be expecting expensive clutch maintenance in the near future? I know Hinson Racing makes a killer aftermarket clutch basket/pressure plate, but is it necessary to replace these items or does good maintenance do the trick? Is it possible to drill holes in the fingers of the stock basket to achieve greater oil flow similar to the Hinson basket?

If you just do a search on clutch here you'll come up with a wealth of info. I will add also that I would recommend against modifying your stock clutch basket in any way, especially drilling holes in it, as that is the main part in question! Hope this helps.
