2000 YZ426F & 1998 YZ400F Shock Interchangeable?

Recommended Posts

Is a 2000 YZ426F shock a direct drop in for a 98 YZ400F(Other than maybe slight a spring rate difference)?

Thanks,

Steve

After doing a little research the part numbers very only slightly.

2000 YZ426F - 5JG-22210-00-00

1998 YZ400F - 5BF-22210-00-00

Mind you this part is for the WR. I can't seem to find the YZ part. Not sure if there is any difference in the WR or YZ part.

Hope this helps.

The numbers are going to vary from one year to the next, even if they are 100% interchangeable, and there is always a difference between the WR and YZ models.

Incidentally, the number change in those two part numbers is not "slight", it's as big as it gets.

Yamaha uses a basic number system for almost all of their parts. Under this system all X-22210-X-X's are rear single unit spring/shocks. All 12180's are cam #2 (exhaust generally), and all 25111's are front hubs.

The 3 character prefix, 5BF, 5JG, etc., are model designators for the motorcycle the part was first issued for. This number will often vary quite a bit in the YZ/YZF line, since a lot of the parts used interchange with other models in the line. But, those 3 characters may be the only difference when the part is for a completely different model. 4C8-22210-00-00 for example, is a shock for an '07 R1, and I don't think anyone will ask if it will fit the YZF.

The two sets of trailing digit pairs are used to indicate revisions, alternate sizes, etc. These can be small changes, and normally don't mean the two can't be interchanged. The trouble is that they don't mean they can, either.

In the particular case of a rear shock, the number can be significantly different with each individual model, but it is true that many of them will interchange. The springs and valving may differ only slightly between the two models mentioned here. What's important is the length of the shock and the size of the mounting eyelets.

Hopefully someone will be able to give you a more definitive answer.

The actual part numbers for the two shocks are:

1998 YZ400: 5BE-22210-00-00

2000 YZ426: 5JG-22210-00-00

Thanks for clearing that up for me I wouldn't have guessed that at all. But as always your vast knowledge straightened me out. :p

Honda uses a similar system, just rearranges the parts of it. The basic number goes first, then the model designator. A 14711-MW0-000 is an intake valve for an '05 CB900, and a 14711-MEB-000 is the same part for a CRF450R.

Ford did the same thing, last time I paid any attention.

98-00 will interchange. Then there is a length different in the 01-02 models.

I remember buying linkages for the 00 year bike and it fit back to the 98 model year.

      Selling an FMF Power Core 4 exhaust system off my 450FX. Exhaust has 80 hours and is 100% functional. This will also fit the 14-15 YZ450F and 16-18 Wr450F. If needed I can also include new muffler packing although it does not need it.

      I have a 2008 YZ450F with a stock header pipe and Pro Circuit T-4 Slip-On Exhaust. I'm 99% sure the slip on is shot because its loud as hell and when I take it off and shake it it rattles. I would repack it but the screws are all stripped ect.
      Anyways I've gone over the carb multiple times and I've got it running pretty well. The only issue I have with the bike is that it sputters and pops around 1/2 throttle when I hold it there. When I give it full throttle from any RPM it runs great or when I give it about 3/4 throttle it spins up like a top to redline.
      Initially the popping and sputtering was way worse I made the situation better by moving the pilot jet up in a few sizes from a 45 (stock) to a 62. The issue has gotten way better since then but I'm not super sure what to do from here. Should I keep moving my pilot jet up in size because that's a pretty large jump right? I tried changing my needle clip position but that didn't help much if anything it just made starting it worse and little to no impact on the ride.
      Any input on this would be helpful. I don't want to buy other slip on. Also as for the rest of the carb I'm very sure everything else in it is what it needs to be at. I've replaced all the gaskets and O-rings cleaned all the jets, valve holes ect. fixed the accelerator pump timing. I just thinks its strange that my pilot jet size is going so far from the stock 45, but all symptoms point to the bike running lean.

      Hi I was wondering if y’all have been using a 450 on your YZ250F?

      Excel Takasago 17x3 front and 17x5 rear supermoto wheels with Metzler M3 tires in very lightly used condition. Less than 200 miles total on the setup. Warp 9 spokes. Rear has a Talon hub with 45T Sunstar steel sprocket and OEM rear disc, and front has a polished OEM Yamaha WR450F hub (for the stock speedometer), with a Motomaster 320mm disc. Included is a DID gold o-ring chain, 14T front sprocket, and front brake caliper adapter for a truly turn key setup. Everything is in excellent condition, not a single scratch on these wheels. Came off my '11 WR450F, but will fit many different Yamahas with 20mm front and 22mm rear axles. Asking $1400 plus shipping.
      **Will be driving up near Atlanta, then to northern Louisiana, OKC, and down through Dallas and Houston, TX soon -- can meet or deliver if in the area (Aug 31-Sep 9)**
