I have had many street bike and loved them all. Cruisers, sportbikes and some fourwheelers. I bought my son a yamaha ttr125 to learn how to ride and guess what happen. It was killing me watching him so I found what I thought was a good deal on a 2000 YZ426. $1700. It has some extras and runs strong. It starts first kick hot or cold which is nice from what I read. Im not sure of the history I bought it from a guy who wanted to play with his friends but got scared of it. He bought it from the original owner. There is a new head on it and I had to replace the back pads. I need to get a manual is the clymers what everyone recommends? I really like the bike and thanks to all for a great resource.
