Sorry to bother you guys, but I'd really appreciate any tips or advice you can offer. I'll be honest and say that I'm not really a Yamaha fan because I know people who have had problems with them and I've never had a (major)problem with Kawasaki, which is all I've ever owned. I don't want another 2stroke though. I've considered getting a KTM or CRF (Kawi don't have a nice big 4stroke), but after riding an 01 YZF426 a couple of weeks ago and listening to fellow riders and reading reviews, I really want to get a 426. The handling is unbeatable for MX and fast track stuff. QUESTIONS: I have been reading posts on this discussion board to get an idea of any problems and I'll keep checking them out, but a bit of help from you guys would be great. 1. Are there any problems with any of the models of the YZF426 that I should watch out for or be a reason not to get one, (I know that's a pretty dumb question to ask you lot seeing as you love your bikes)? 2. What would be the best year model to get if buying second hand (I'm assuming the later the better) or what year(s) should I keep away from (the 400 seems to have a few little problems that have been addressed in later models)? I'm pretty set on getting one and most likely will, but I'd appreciate your honest opinions. Thanks for your time.
