new 426

Thanks again for everyone's help the past several weeks. I finally found a bike worth getting and I got it this morning. It's a clean, low hour, 2002 YZ426.

I was going to post a picture but the posting rules at the bottom of my page says:

If you've got pictures, load them up at photobucket.com or something of the sort and just link to them. Congrats on the purchase! :ride:

Here is a picture:

I am going to change the pipe, powder coat the frame black, and get the retro yellow kit from One Industries. Mechanically its in good shape but I am going to change to an '03 cam and maybe a rekluse if I can afford it.

looks great. why are you going to change the exhaust? too loud?

mine is powder coated black, but i have black plastics, i wouldn't powder coat yours, as the blue looks good with the blue plastics, and it would look cleaner blue.anyway good luck with the bike :ride:

I am only going to change the frame color to better match the yellow. I plan on having the bike for a long time and don't think I will go back to the blue anytime soon.

As far as the exhaust I do some riding in a national forest and they do inspect the bikes. I was thinking of the FMF Q2 but don't know if I should get a regular FMF and buy the inserts. I am not an "expert" rider and I don't think I will miss the little bit of power that will be "robbed" with the Q2. I am open to any thoughts and suggestions.

While talking about it, can anyone tell me why the Pro Circuit pipe (the forest friendly one) is $100 more than the FMF. I have always like Pro Circuit but I can't justify $100 more just for the big name (they have bragging rights since most the winning supercross bikes have Pro Circuit pipes...)

That's pretty funny-did you look at the picture of the bike, might look familiar to you...

If I get a Q I think I will what the newer one, the original seems a bit long to me.

Ya, I've seen that bike somewhere. I think all the Q pipes are pretty long that is what helps make them quiet.
