2000 CLUTCH

I READ THAT THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE CLUTCH OF 2000 426'S.

I ORDERD MY BIKE NEW AND RECIEVED IT IN JAN.2000.MY CLUTCH WAS ALWAYS GRABBY BUT NO OTHER PROBLEMS. IS THERE A RECALL AND HOW WOULD YOU GO ABOUT IT?

Some of the early 2000 426's had faulty clutch baskets.The baskets were actually braking. Yamaha only shipped a FEW with this problem. It is very rare that you have this problem. I got one of the first 2000 426's in Southeastern Michigan and I had NO problem with my Bike's clutch. The clutch pull did take some getting use to (four stroke vs. two stroke), but I never had a problem with it dragging. Try replacing the clutch cable with a steel reinforced cable, it will give you a better feel. :)
