YZ Power

How does the power of a 1998 yz400f compare to the bigger bikes "426,450"

:banghead:

It feels about 26-50 cc's less. :banghead: No, I am just kidding. I don't think it feels that much less than the 426 but I would say way different from the 450. The 450 feels much more powerfull than both, in my opinion.

I think the 426 feels about the same as a 450.The 450 has a little more top end.Never got to ride a 400 yet.

don't quote me but someone had posted the info here before and it went something like 400F -44hp 426F -46hp 450F -48hp

big difference-i had both 400 and 450.the 450 is way more bike!

its a big change from a 400 to the new 450

Another reason the 450 feels so much faster is because it has a 4 speed tranny. 400 and 426 are 5 speeds.

Huh, my 400s a 4 speed!

The 400 is a great motor but doesn't have the low end of a 426. Because of that, it almost feels stronger up top. Smooth but rev-happy motor, whereas the 426 has more low end, a mid-low end "hit," and a good top.

I don't really have enough seat time on a YZ450 to have an opinion on that....

No way man I have same bike as yours and is a 5 speed, I never saw before a 400 with 4 gears 400 and 426 are all 5 speed, unless is not stock but yours is stock, or is not?

Sounds like somebody stole your top gear!
