Hey guys, I was wondering if anybody could help with the settings on this 2000 yz426f beast. i'm 6'1", 230# and a novice rider riding mx.Is there anybody close to that and knows what their clicks are set at so i can use that as a starting point. The suspension has been gone thru by scott suspension before i bought the bike... thanks for your responds...

For the initial setting use the email address in my profile and I'll check when I get home. For tuning information, go to MX-Techs web site and they have a complete guide on tuning. Print it out and take it to the track.

I'm 10 pounds lighter than you but, my settings should get you close.


99 WR400f, YZ timed, MX-Tech suspension, Scotts steering damper, White Bros E-Series (12 discs), tapered header and a/f. Kouba T-handle for the fuel screw. Works Connection billet throttle tube and frame guards. Cycra Pro-Bend, triple clamp mount handguards. Thumper Racing rad guards, Renthal Jimmy Button highs, YZ Tank and IMS seat, YZ number plate, odo removed, EKP, 48PJ, 175MJ at 500-1000' Thanks James Dean!
