hey everyone i need some opinions. i havent been riding my yz426 much on the track i was mainly doing trails because i couldnt get out to my local track. but when i got out there i didnt do so hot on it. so should i give it some time? or should i change to a 2stroke? im going to want to race sooner or later and try that out. so tell me what you all think. do you think if i give it some time and get use to the bike ill be able to race it no problem? thanks everyone!

Of course this is just my opinion, but stick with it. Once you get used to the four stroke, you'll be a better rider on it than you would on a two stroke. Much smoother power delivery, more forgiving, etc....Intimidation factor (on all the other riders) is a plus too! :)

I couldn't stand mine on the track until i practiced practiced practiced.
I love the part where you scream into the corner on the rearend of a 2smoke they try to hold the outside line to carry enuf speed to clear the 60' table and i just slip to the inside and look them rite in the eyes as they are doing 3rd gear around the outside. Just leave it in 2nd and roll around the inside line and just as he looks as if he is going to FLY by me..........Nail it.
Hookin up and Hangin' on sailing side by side in the air and FREAKIN him out cuz he had no clue that ANY bike especially a MEASLY 4STROKER could Scream up to his front wheel. Then just keep it open and he'll be wonderin what the heck just happened when he gets a Yard and a half of finely groomed soil in his chin!

That's not thunder ridin' your BUTT .........
It's a whole Damn HURRICANE!!!!!!
