Big Bore for 426f?

Is there a way to get it to 450cc? or is there any other big bore kits around? thanks.

My 426 has a 440 kit on it.. Check out bigbore kits, they got em.

A 2mm overbore (97mm piston) will get you 444cc which is the practical limit for a bore increase on an OEM cylinder. Displacement beyond that would require a stroke change or a recast cylinder like Athena is building.

i agree i dont think you would notice 6cc's

What do people think of the 450 kit from Thumper Racing? :cry:

Falicon has a 488 bore/stroke kit. A bit pricey, $2200 or so.

Wouldnt buying a 13.5:1 Wiseco piston make up the 24cc's the 450's have? :cry: :cry:

no,the wiseco piston boosts compression not displacement,i have it and i still wont chase down the 450 on a long straight :cry:

You can get a 13.5:1 version of the 97mm Wiseco piston that will bring the displacement to 444 after a rebore/replate of the cylinder. If the rest of the engine is done right it will run with the newer 450s .

Here's a dyno chart of SFO's 444 running stock cams (reindexed) and stock valve sizes. At 52 horsepower on pump gas and 54 on Nutec it can stay with the 450s no problem. :cry:

Sweet!! :cry: :cry:

My buddy has a 450 big bore kit on his.... It has blown up twice, but I'll find out where and what he has done to it.

      Got a break in the weather over the weekend, and was finally able to get out on a track for the first time since October.  I know I suck compared to a lot of guys (and kids for that matter), but I always have a blast twisting a grip and roosting some dirt!  Here's a raw uncut lap around the MX track at IMI Motorsports Complex in Dacono, CO.  Was a fun day despite some wind.  Also, there was a drift car club having a meet on the road course.  So, got to check out some drift car action while we were taking a break.

      Lightly used Clarke Gas Tank (model #11614) for a 2010-13 YZ450F.  Includes cap.  For fuel injected YZ450F, so needs to have fuel pump transferred over.  Rest of stock tank hardware fits perfectly.  2.8 gallon capacity, so great for desert, hare scrambles, or WORCS.  Retails for $240.
