All the 400 series yamahas have made in the 47-50 HP range...they just seemed to refine and make them more smooth along the road.

2001 YAMAHA YZ426F

Still the king after all this time. The 426 is still powerful, but its strongest points are suspension and handling. The clutch works better for 2001 and there’s less of a carburetion hitch if you whack open the throttle too fast.

TEST BIKE WEIGHT: 248 lb.

PEAK HORSEPOWER : 47.0 @ 9600 rpm

Here are a few dyno runs from my website:

This compares Jon Escombe's ’00 YZF 426 and the YZF444 that SFO built. They were run on different dynos but it's still an interesting comparison.

Here's some additional runs with SFO's bike:

and some more info from Jon's tuning:

The 400 is 43hp...........426 is 47hp..........450 is 50. :

Thats approximate rear wheel HP where it all counts. If you want to get all excited over numbers look at the SAE values: :thumbsup:

YZ400- 54 YZ426 -57(00)-58(01-02) YZ450-60
