How can i tell my bike is a WR426?

14 posts in this topic

Hi this is my first post as ive just bought what i think is a WR426

The owner advertised it as a WR426 and swares it is but on the logbook it says WR400,is there a way to tell by looking at the engine etc?

Also the bike is definately an import to the UK as the speedo is in kilometres so im hoping it is a WR426

Can anyone let me know?

Many thanks

Hey - there's absolutely NOTHING wrong with the 400 - it's just as potent as the 426 - get some money back and enjoy the bike!

Fair enough im sure the 400 is fast enough i havent had a go yet! (I need to mot it for the road)

And i got £200 back (400 dollars) so cant complain,thats a big enough reduction from the price of a WR426.

It'll cost me about £150 to get it through the mot so the bike will cost me about £1050 in total including the mot.

haha - nice headlight - I got the same one - right down to teh ACERBIS sticker along the top!!!

you won't be able to use that on the street though (At least not here in Canada) - i put in 2 MR16 bulbs - one 50W spot the other a 50W flood - good lighting.

£1050 i'd be happy with that, sounds like a bargin to me. Ride it for the year and then sell it on you won't have lost any money at that price. Happy motoring

Yep i don't think i've done bad at £1050 if the mot goes well,but im gonna replace the plastics as some are abit scratched and some of the stickers are peeling abit.

And i think the headlight is e marked so should be ok for an mot,i hope so anyway!

Im in Bradford mate

And unfortunately the headlight wont pass an mot :thumbsup:

But i managed to find an original headlight,backlight,speedo and cable all for £30 delivered

I only needed the headlight but they all came together,though my current speedo is in kilometres so i might switch it to the one off ebay which is in miles.
