Gave the 426 a little facelift

12 posts in this topic

Tore the bike down last week to clean and repack all the bearings, check the valves etc. Figures while I was at it I would finally put on the graphics I bought a while back.

Before

And After

I think it came out pretty good. The side number plates are the most difficult to put on...much patience.

A definite improvement!

Did you change the seat too?

that is actually the stock seat, put it back on since it looked good with these graphics.

My jaw dropped......

Very Nice. Looks good. I have some follow-up Pics to post. I cracked my tank late last year and just now got my 426 back together with a new Clarke Tank and Graphics. Many thanks to MX642 for the help... Will post Pics soon...

That looks great. What a difference! I've been thinking about putting the black number plate graphics on my bike. Looks like you made up my mind for me.

I have those FLU graphics on my WR (yes they say YZF) and they have held up well.

I should take some pics - 'brothers from another mother'

No, repacking the bearings is just normal maintenance, I would never let them get to the point it would affect how the bike rode. And the valves were within spec, so no adjustment needed. I kind of knew they were good before I opened it up because the bike always starts on the 1st or 2nd kick.
