As per Taffy check on a article I posted on the gear ratio change.

To answer your question : 3rd and 4th gear ratios on the YZ and WR are almost identical. I therefore did not change mine purely to save some money on the conversion. The bike runs great with the 1st, 2nd and 5th gear conversion. There are no 'gaps' in the gearbox as you run through the gears. The bike with the modified ratios is perfect for almost all off road terrain.

One small correction.

The article was not initiated by myself but its title is

'Gear Change - CraigW, anyone else?'

It was listed on 5-29-2000.

Does the 426 not have a diffent ratio between the crank and the clutch?

This is probably minor in the gear change and will not change the feel of the WR gears.. but just make the whole lot atiny bit taller.. not enought to be concerned about though.
