yz 400?

11 posts in this topic

1976-1979/80

They we mean; Too much power, no suspension, and no brakes.

I had a 1979 YZ400 and it hauled serious booty. Probably one of the loudest bikes I've ever heard. You can find them for about $300-$1000 all day long.

It's kinda of a bastard bike, inbetween the famous/good ones.

...400 and 465 were great bikes for the day, especially the 426...but the 490 was a dog. Could never get 'em jetted right, crappy brakes and unballanced suspension.
