All of the YZ 426's (2000-2002) use the same radiators, so obviously any from those years will work fine.

I believe the rads from the 400's ('98-99) were smaller since the displacement was smaller. I know they don't bolt right up without modifying your rad shrouds. In any case, I wouldn't go that route. Even if you can get them to fit, the last thing you want is a bike that overheats easily.

Your only other option may be the WR 426 rads. They are bigger (more capacity) than the YZ's but I'm pretty sure they bolt right up. The YZ and WR part numbers for the rad shrouds are not the same, so you may have to modify your rad shrouds or pick up a set of WR shrouds to fit right.

If it were me, I'd look for a direct replacement for the 426. If you don't want to fork over the coin for a new one, try Ebay. They come across there all the time.
