I am a new owner of an almost new YZ426F, I bought it from a friend who never rode it. It's the most awsome bike I have ridden thus far in my riding days. One problem, what is the trick on starting this bike when it's cold? I have an older Honda XR600 and if it sits for months, I can give it 5 or 6 kicks and it fires right up. The Yamaha on the other hand is much more difficult to kick over.
