top speed

hey guys,

i was wondering how fast the 426 tops out. i was drag racing my buddy on a ktm 520 and they seemed to be the same speed.

thanks

About 74 according to dirt rider. A stock wr with gears can hit over 100.

I read in jodycross action that the top speed on a bone stock YZF was 88mph and 96mph for a WR. But like IO said that info came from jodycrossaction

My geared up YZ400 hits 80 at the rev limiter, confirmed by a truck speedometor. Maybe they tested a geared up bike but I know my YZ won't go over 80, even with the 1 tooth more on the front sprocket. The stock bike won't come near 80 till gears are added. I'm not sure about the WR.

my buddys yz426 topspeed[hittng rev limiter]77mph stock gearing.ive had my wr up to 94mph with 15\46 gearing[no rev limiter,just headshake]with stock gearing it tops out at 84mph

LAST WEEK ME AND BROTHER WAS ON A PAVED ROAD. HE WAS RIDEING HIS WR AND I WAS ON MY 426, "I HIT 94 ON MY 426" MY 426 IS A STOCK BIKE. :)

I tapped my at 187 mph at the salt flats last weekend.....

YOUR WHAT LAST WEEK? MOMMA'S CAR? :):D

Yo Momma Was in da Back Seat

Well my YZ400 hit 110. Course it was in the back of my tacoma at the time. :)

the only way a yz will do 90mph is if its geared at 15/42 or being towed by a wr.

A YZ426 will not do 94 mph stock, period. If a YZ can go that fast, than my WR426 can go 85 in fourth gear...half throttle.

2000 YZ426
