Yz426f Plastics

Hey guys I'm thinking of trading my 2005 yamaha xt 225 for an 02 yz426f. I've seen a lot of pics of bikes with newer plastics on them. I like the 426's just wanna make it look like a new bike with newer style plastics. Any help on interchanging the plastics with newer 450 ones? I'm new to the thumper talk so all help is greatly appreciated

I used to have a yamaha 2006 wr450f and am now also getting a 2001 yz426 as well... I know on the yz 426's front and rear fenders are easily interchangeable with a newer model yz450s fenders with little to no fabrication required... The shrouds mount onto the tank so if you wanted to change those it would probly require buying a tank and shrouds off of a newer yz450... There really isn't much of a difference in the seats and air box but it really just depends what model look your wanting to go to... I believe they went to fuel injected at like 09, but I may be wrong... I think if it's a newer fuel injected model the tank would not be interchangeable. The one I'm getting has flex spots in the fenders and I will be changing them as well as a graphics kit, and fenders are super easy to find. on google shopping... Loads of universal fenders also.

Thanks. What's the google shopping thing?

On google you can search for things, and up top you can select images, videos, Books, and other categories, but there is also a shopping category, so if you search dirtbike fender, and select the shopping category, it will bring up loads of them, from any online stores selling the part... Makes it easy to compare prices too...then just click on the ones that interest you


Will newer model 450 fenders

Fit on a 02 yz426? I've been trying to give my bike a facelift, ordered lots of billet accessories, levers, plugs, cap, spacers etc. but would love to be able to fit those new style fenders. As long as I would have to mock up or fabricate to fit

I put a new 2010-2013 fender and number plate on mine. Cut out some cardboard and make a template of your old fender bolt holes. Then drill the new one and you're good to go. Number plate took the top screw fine but I zip tied the bottom. With some careful cutting it might line up better.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      I could use some feedback, My son is getting into off road riding so I have starting getting back into it as well.  We mostly do trail riding but did some MX track riding last year and he loved it andso did I.  I have a 2003 TTR 225, it's nice that it has an electric start but the suspension is too soft and it doesn't have enough power for my liking.  When I was riding the MX track I was having issues bottoming out on the larger jumps.  I want to change to a more off-road capable bike.   I won't ride it much and don't want to spend a lot of money, I think I prefer a 2 stroke, when I was younger, in 1990, I raced an 89 RM250 and loved it.  I am looking at a 96 RMX 250  and a 98 YZ400F, both bikes look to be in good condition and around a thousand dollars.  I like the RMX because I think kicking a 2 stroke 250 should be easier than a 4 stroke 400 and the simplicity of the 2 stroke engine.  The 400 sounds good because of the low end torque I assume it has but the cost of rebuilding the 4 stroke if needed worries me and I have heard they are hard to start. Should the RMX be decent for an occasional trip to an MX park?  Any thoughts on these two bikes?

      Brand new, still in the packaging Lexx end cap fits the stock muffler of 2006 & 2007 YZ450f and 06-13 YZ250f. Comes with a forest service approved spark arrestor and two different size tips. Don't spend hundreds of dollars on a slip on, this tip can be quiet and forest legal or loud and make power! Also a note for WR450 guys: get this tip and find a used 06/07 YZ muffler, fits directly on 09-15 WR450. $80 shipped free to the lower 48. PM, call or text 406-223-8789

      So I have a 2008 yz450f and I would like to add some LED lights to it to make it street legal. Mainly just a headlight and a tail light and turn signals if I need to (which where I live hand signals work).
      So where I need help is getting power from the stator to a battery. Wiring from a battery to anything else I got and understand and don't need help with (but recommendations are welcome). So my questions are.
      What type of power is coming from the stator. AC or DC? Will I need a regulator or rectifier? How do I wire something from the stator to charge a battery? What would that wiring look like? Would this stator http://www.rickystator.com/product/stators/yamaha/yamaha-yz450f-35-watt-lighting-stator-assembly-06-09 work? Anything else I should know? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
