YZ 426 Feedback/review


New Member

My name is Johnny with La Mesa Motosport. Im looking at some late model, like 2001-2003, YZ 426 F's to purchase and am looking for some information regarding their performance, reliability, potential issues and/or consumer reviews in general. I've heard that the early model YZ 450 F's had issues related to the valves being weak and wondering if I should be concerned about this on the YZ 426 F models. I've ridden a friends YZ 426 F quite a bit so I know that it has the manual compression lever. The low price, with still good power on a 4 stroke, for the older YZ 426 F's is the reason Im looking at them versus a newer 450's. Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks, JR
