So I am converted my 426 to a dual sport ( well, am in the process) However I need some help with the stator wiring. I picked up the WR426 stator just to charge a 12v battery I am putting in the air box. I bought the needed regulator/rectifier (trail tech) to convert the ac (stator) to the dc (battery) to charge it. The 12v battery will be lighting a 35w 12v polisport headlight, tusk tail light and turn signals and a horn. I am just curious as to if I need to mod the stator to work with the yz wiring or of the regulator/rectifier does that. Plus I have no clue how to wire the headlight. It has 3 prongs for the main light (the wiring diagram said ground, medium, maximum) then had a tiny lithe bulb to the side that says 4w and has two little wires that are a 2 pin connector, and like i said i have the tusk wiring kit which has the main switch for the head light but only has 3 wires for a main headlight a low beam and then a high beam, other than this, the bike is ready to go and I am dying to get it out on the road.

Hey, I want to the same exact thing!


Any pictures, or additional info will be appreciated!


Yamaha never made a YZ450 on/off road, they'd clean up the 600/650 market, for anyone wanting to actually go off-road.

At least I live in a state where I just need the original certificate, and make it pass inspection, new bike is 5 years.




2001 YZ426F aka the Cluster F

I finished it, the easiest part was the wiring. The tusk wiring kit is awesome, you can get your own battery (also comes with small battery pack) and hook everything up the way you want it. The only problem I had was nodding the wr stator to work with the yz. I did the pink wire mod, and it seemed to run but didn't run effectively so I will have to make better connections. Here's the final pics before and then after...ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1434086687.133119.jpgImageUploadedByThumper Talk1434086701.663693.jpgImageUploadedByThumper Talk1434086710.715285.jpg

You can pm me for detailed instructions I would be happy to help. Just took the first ride on it today, and I haven't changed the tires so they were a bit loud and wobbly. Just got a job at cycle gear and that's exactly where my paycheck will go.

      I'm finally getting the chance to go to the dunes in Oregon and cant decide weather I should run a 8 or 10 paddle tire on the back of my 81 YZ465 2stroke. Suggestions? Pros and cons for each? Thanks!

      Hey all, let me get right to the point, basically for the past couple years I've had this bike, it hasn't been running right. It tends to start well, and has a decent amount of power for a 200+ lb kid on it, but once I attempt to hit the top of the power band, it tends to cough and sputter like it's choking. When I recently checked to carb to jet it, I realized ALL but one of the Jets are missing. I've checked the reed valves, they seem to be in great shape... However, today (it is a warm day) it ran great for a while, after topping off the oil and running with the choke half on, this bike also leaks oil, but I'm almost convinced that this is a jetting issue (being that they're missing)  at this point, but I've also never put a top end in this bike. Thanks for any help, I'd just like to get an opinion on what you guys think.   I know I'm all over the place btw, sorry for that

      I've currently got a 2016 yz250x. I love it but it's not road legal.
      I've got my motorbike license and I need a bike to ride to work. If I'm going to drop a few k on another bike, I figure I might aswell get a road legal dirtbike so I can ride on the road during the week but also ride in the state forests on the weekend.
      So my question is, what bike would suit my purpose better? The RMX or the WR? Or are there any other bikes I should be looking at? Here in australia theres about 20 times more wr's for sale then rmx's, and spare parts availabilty is easier for the wr cos they're so popular, so I'm leaning towards this, but I'm open to suggestions from others.
      Regardless of which one I got, I'd get a supermoto wheelset for it so I could just swap wheelset instead of changing tires every weekend.
      Thanks in advance

      Hey ThumperTalk. I'm new to the forum and I have some questions about a 2001 yz426 I found for sale. The guy wants $1500 but said he would work with me on the price a little. I know that's a pretty good deal. What I'm wondering is how long the motor will last me. All I'll be doing is trail riding and riding around on a farm. I have an rm125 which I love. I was looking around for an 06+ yz250, but I found this deal and I've always heard good things about the 426's. He said he recently did the valves and it has been a good reliable bike for him. So would this be a good bike for me? I just don't wanna get a 4 stroke and have to dump a ton of money into it. My 2 stroke has been bullet proof. 
      Any help would be appreciated
