450 Cyl Head on a 426 Cylinder?

Hey Gang,

I am looking for a replacement head for my 2002 wr426 and I found a 2006 yz 450 Cylinder Head. Will this yz450 Head fit on my wr426 cylinder and piston? What about the Cam compatibility between the two models. I know that the two bikes share the 95mm bore but thats about all I know about their compatibility.

Thanks for the help guys!:thumbsup:

I ahven't tried it myself, but I have read that a 450 head will not work on a 400/426. A 400 head will work for you if you can't find a 426, but you have to block off a vacuum port on the intake side.
