I ride with 2 WR426F & 2 YZ426F and I would never knock their bikes except for being hard starters. They are great bikes just not for me.

You don't really expect to win this one do you? That is the kind of challenge that always brings out the radicals,you know the ones :I have never ridden (insert bike name here) but I would never buy one.There are some things I don't like about my KTM ( nit-picking ) but some people do have blinders on when looking at different bikes. Depending on rider size and where you ride the Yamaha can be the better choice. CaptKTM I know you are strictly a bush rider,so we can't really make educated comparisons on moto-cross bikes. Lets leave that one alone.You like myself have recently come off of Jap bikes,and most likely will not go back,but many other bush/trail riders arn't so lucky.And just think how boring it would be if everyone rode the same type of bike.;p


400 EXC--stock&great

YAMAHA 250--sold

250 sherco

Took a peek...seems surprisingly good natured.

Reminds me of MoPar versus Chevy versus Ford days . . . when I was a mere lad. guys are no fun!

thumperdarryl you were the one that told me about the pumpkin so i thought you would at least come to my rescue.

us gimps got to stick together!

I left a fairly biased post which should ruffle a few feathers. Erik

Interesting fact: In the 2001 RIDER PROFILES for the THE AMA WESTERN 4-STROKE THUMPER NATIONALS there are 141 listed riders. Yamaha's 121 = 86%

KTM's 13 = 9%

OTHER's = 5%

12 Moto's so far with 10 Holeshot's by KTM's

It's alot of fun - especially since I like the 426...but own the 520 sx!


It's like the Hatfields and McCoys! Or I guess the Austrians and the Japanese! :)
