Hey Everyone. I've been talking about this project all over thumpertalk for the last few weeks. I recently baught a 2000 yz426f for $600. The previuos owner had siezed during a race, so he thaught he could get away with just redoing the the top end. The week before he sold it, he installed a new piston and cylinder. It started up after he did the work, then siezed after 3 min. Anyway, the bike was it perfect shape, besides that, so I went ahead and baught it. Here's a pic of the bike. I tore it apart a couple weeks ago and discovered a bad rod. So, after getting my crank back, I rebuilt the engine last night. Here's a pic of the motor complete After completing the motor, I set out today to do as much as I could. I got the motor in and the suspension back together I started to put my new graphics on, but after I found out the number backgrounds were wrong, I decided to just put everything back on to get it running. I got it fired up after 4 kicks. Got oil pressure, no leaks, and the transmission is smooth I know it looks goofy with 2 differant styles of graphics, but I'll finish those tomorrow and put my frame covers and all the other stuff on. I also have to finish cleaning the header, to make it look new again. I'll be sure to keep everyone posted.
