hey guys, im new to the site and did my research on bikes and just picked up an 01 yzf426. the thing is insane off road and has tons of power. its a pain in the ass to get use to starting it with the decompression lever, expecially when you are tired. other than that the bike is crazy. so just wanted to thank everyone for all the info on this site that led me to buying the 426. plus i got a great deal so it was meant to be i guess.
