In an attempt to cure the hideous clutch problem on my 2000 YZ426, this past week I replaced the last friction plate of the 2000 clutch with the 2001 friction plate, and added the 2001 seat plate and anti-judder spring. On Sunday I had the opportunity to test this remedy out on a 7 hour ride encompassing all types of terrain. I want to thank the fine members of this board for suggesting this remedy, as it completely cured the dragging/chattering clutch. There was absolutely no dragging and no chattering of any kind, even immediately after the bike was warmed up. I want to mention the stock clutch basket is still in this bike, and the clutch still works flawlessly. So, if you have a 2000 model and you want to fix the dragging clutch, don't waste $200+ dollars on a clutch basket, because all you need is $40 for the 3 2001 model clutch parts mentioned above !!! Now all I need to do is figure out how to do the BK mod !!!
