I know I am preaching to the choir but I am pretty impressed with my new 426. My old CR250 I would have to WORK at clearing jumps right out of turns but the 426-just roll on the throttle and fly like an eagle... suspension also works better than my 97 CR. Obviously I would expect a newer bike to be better but I had my CR's suspension done by Precision Concepts and the stock YZ suspension is still far better. I am looking forward to doing the cam mod, adding a FMF Q2 silencer, and converting the plastics to an '03. My One Industries Hurricane kit comes in next week but I need to strip the frame to have it powder coated... I feel like a kid in a candy shop!
