G-Man, How do you compare the weight of the 426 to the CR250? I have a YZ400, but am looking at a 01 CR250, YZ250, or the YZ426. There are times when the 400 really feels heavy so I'm thinking about giving a 2-smoke a try. Don't get me wrong I love the 400, but I have this bug to go get a 01 CR250. I spend 99 percent of my riding time at the track. I hope that Yamaha will release a 235 pound YZ426 next year.
