I just sold my beloved 426 and picked up an 02 250 2T. I Cali we need green stickers for the woods and the 450's are all red. The 426 was getting a little heavy so I made the switch. I really love the 2T. Nice and lite and the power is pretty nice too. What surprised me is the torque. It's not all powerband like I've heard. With the easy maintenance I think I will be on this bike for a long time.
