Differences in WR426 00' 01' & 02'

Recommended Posts

Do you guys know what changes were made on the WR426 from 2000 to 2001 to 2002?

Im looking to pick up a used WR426 and Im unsure about which year is the best (only that newer is better in my book). If they are vertually similar beasts then I wouldnt have a problem picking up an 01' instead of an 02'.

I appreciate any knowledge you guys have.

The 2000 was still a 400. Nothing major between 2001 and 2002 models. But still had some changes unlike most other bikes that just got "Bold New Graphics". Yamaha is on the ball with the racing 4 strokes and every year they are improving.
