Got only an hour on a track so far. Bike feels great. Pretty much just like 2000 426.

Havent really pushed it hard yet. I love it.

One thing is it seems like the front end wants to dive alot more than my 00'. I figure its because the engine braking is alot more pronounced with a new motor.

DirtDGR, how is the weight of the 2002? Can you tell any difference?

So, you got a 426? Any word on the 250F?

Cant tell a difference in weight.
No word on the 250.
Would ride it more but am riding my 650 Honda to get ready for Vegas to Reno
