YZ400 or YZ426

3 posts in this topic

I am looking at some used bikes mostly for recreational mx'ing and some trails. I was looking for a used yz400 because they are a pretty good deal. A friend told me to stick with the 426 because there were some significant upgrades that affect reliability and starting.

What do some of you experienced 4 stroke's think?

Thanks

I have a 99' 400 and love it. My friend has a 426 that I have rode and the extra power is nice. However it has a higher first gear than the 400 which makes it a bit harder to handle in the tight trails. I do a lot of mixed riding (mountain trails, Moab slickrock, desert and ocasionaly MX) and feel that the 400 is better for this. If I was racing only then I would be on the 426.
