To all, I recently bought my brand new 2001 YZ426 and I have been regularly been track practicing while religously changing the oil. Then after just two months of ownership my third gear started popping out, then the same day I noticed strange noises coming from the motor. I thought the 3rd gear problem was me shifting lightly until I heard the weird motor noises. I have heard rumors of third gear problems, but have been unable to get anyone at Yamaha to fess up. Has anyone experienced this and what did it cost you? Thanks for any help anyone can give.
