Hi Guys, this is all new to me so bear with me. I bought my 426 a year ago (1st new bike) & it was soooo nice to see it in my garage. I have had bikes for almost 30yrs but raced only 1&1/2 when I bought it. In my 1st MX race on the 426 I finished 4-1 for 1st out of 15 WOW! It has been a dream bike ever since. The only thing that has bothered me has been the grabby clutch & I still got more holeshots than ever before. About a week ago I found Thumpertalk.com & now things arn't so nice any more. I read all the 426/400 stuff from the last year & Boit seems to be the only "00 426 owner that has hung on , fixed everything and shows faith in the "00 426. Now I notice the clutch more than ever , also the loud noise ,CB key? and if I loose 3rd or 4th on one of these jumps I could break my neck! Probably $2000 to upgrade to a "01 426 or I can start fixing my "00 & hope I don't blow a gear. Probably about $1000 to get things attended to on the "00. What do I do? I take it they strengthened the gears on the "01 426 , nobody has complained that has an "01. I don't want a 2-stroke!!!
