YZ426F clutch vs YZ400F

I'm going to rebuild the clutch on a 98 YZ400F.

Can I just replace the worn components (basket, plates) with 00-02 YZ426componets? I heard they are slightly different. What parts are interchangeable?

Just about everything is different. I am about to try the same swap, I have a complete clutch from a 2001 YZ426 that I'm about to fit into my 1999 WR400. I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks a lot! That would be great!:thumbsup:

You will need everything. Even the side cover on the engine is different since the clutch basket is a larger diameter than the 400. It all bolts up though, no machining mods required. If you don't have a donor motor to get all this stuff it will be prohibitively expensive.

...or find the stuff used on eBay.
