WHAT IS THE TOP SPEED FOR A 01 WR426?
When in doubt, GAS IT!
What are you, YELLOW?
I'll be a little more exact this time. I now the WR top speed is WAY FASTER then my YZ400.
I wish I could get my hands on a WR gear box and toss it in my bike wince everything else is set up.
My 2000 YZ426 was clocked (by police radar) at 83mph. Your WR should be a bit faster. Say (90+)?
My 00 400 managed 95mph and was was bouncing off the rev limiter. I am sure that with altered gearing it would easily do over 100mph.
88 on pavement stock gearing
One of the dirtbike mags clocked a '01 WR426 at 103mph, bouncin' off the rev limiter. I had mine up to 77 on a gravel road...that was *plenty* fast!
I plan on clocking mine with my radar but, I have to find a place where I can set up my car and still clock my friend. I also have to find a place where I can legally clock him. I would have to find out my bikes top speed and then turn around and have to write him a ticket for exceeding the posted speed
MY is 100MPH with 15/48 gearing on hightway. : )
Of course 696 you are quite right (70mph speed limit), i luckily managed to find a disused runway for my own personal testing purpopses. Ho Ho.

Actual top speed.. 103 Mph.
My 00 WR 400 goes fast enough to force a large flying bug through my closed lips and into my mouth. It also handles so well that I didn’t crash while spitting bug parts out of my mouth at excessive speeds. I’m sure the 01 WR426 could do the same with even a larger bug.

Ward, why did you spit it out? If you had not, you'd would have not had to stop for lunch!
You know it really didn’t taste bad, kind of sweet. My lips went around it my mind would not.
I don’t think I could be a voice in the wilderness and live off honey and locusts.
