Hey Anthony

I just bought my first bike, 2000 YZ426F, and I too have noticed a "tinging" sound when in idle, and when first reving up. The bike doesn't sound like others, and I've inquired about it. Everyone I've spoken to says that is "normal" for Yamaha 's. The tinging on my bike is noticeable, but not very loud. Kinda reminds me of an old Subaru I had. You didn't say how old your bike was. I too ride just the trails-loose clay, rocks, water, and lots of mud. Let me know how you make out.
