I'm so happy!!!!! I have been reading these forums for a few months and have been really wanting a new 426. So....I went to Competition Accessories in Springfield, Ohio....with my '01 Yamaha Raptor in the bed of my truck...determined to get me a 426!!!! I stopped in there and they had 4- '01 426's and no '02's. They were selling for $4,999. Now....Just October of last year....I had bought my Yamaha Raptor.....a month after they came out...I really wanted one of those....so I paid $7,500 for the stupid thing.....what a waste!!! I have had nothing but trouble with it. Carbs pop off...thought tranny was gone...everything....so I traded it in. They gave me only $3,750 for it. Almost a loss of $4k!!! This is how bad I wanted a 426. So....I paid the rest of the money and was on my merry way!!! Take into consideration I'm only 16. I love this thing though!!! I thought my Raptor was fast!!! That was nothing compared to this!!! I rips your arms outta socket!!! One question though...I'm kinda short (5'6") so I lowered the preload on it. Will this affect the way the suspension acts? Also.....I feels like you're sitting on a 2x6 when riding it.....is there anybody that makes softer foam? I love the wheelies!!! If they say the Honda CR450F is better than this....I can't even imagine how something could be better than this. Got another question....what is the top-speed of the 426? haven't had it tapped out yet but want to compare it to my raptor. Sorry for rambling on and on. I just wanted to tell my great story and ask all the quesitons I'd been wanting to ask.
