Hey guys, before I get serious about riding my "new" yz400, I want to go through it and make sure everything is up to snuff.

One thing I will be changing immediately is the pads.

Do you have suggestions on which pads I should go with? I will be mostly trail riding, but I would like for the pads to be generally versatile.

OEM pads are "generally versatile". The trouble with aftermarket pads is that some work well, and some wear well, some do both, and some don't do either one, even within the same product lines.

Another good choice would be pads for an '02 CRF450. If they fit, they will stop a little better. Take your old pads in to match them up, but I'm pretty sure they interchange.
