I have not race MX in almost 3 years and I am thinking about a comeback. I have a friend who has a 2000 426 that he says he will sell me in august for $3000-Hinson clutch basket and all. I have ridden 2 strokes my whole life and am scared of a 4 stroker a little bit but that seems like a hell of a deal for that bike. Is it worth the chance for that kind of deal? The bike is spotless! I am 6'3 220 pds. and was always told that I would be a good open bike rider. I was a vet-pro before I quit and was told to be a very smooth rider. Is the 426 for me? I rode one briefly in 98 and was very impressed with the handling on hard pack and the way the front end stay glued in corners. Any input would be appreciated.
