Well today was the day, I broke out my brand new 426 for its first ride. I have never ridden a four stroke before and after much prompting from my friends I sold the 01 cr250 and picked the 426 up last week. Before I rode it I had the suspension valved and heavier springs installed ( i weigh 235), I also bought applied works clamps and pro-tapers. Ready to go. First few laps were touch and go...the bike has tremendous power and I carried the front wheel in a lot of the straights. Turning takes some getting used to since I am used to the cut and thrust style with the CR, I am trying to learn to flow more and not abuse the clutch. Jumping has me scratching my head. I am not confident like on the CR. I used to like to charge a jump and let off the throttle and slam the jump face to get the clear. Obviously this wont work on the 426 without a trip to the hospital. The throttle on jump technique takes a little getting used to. I guess that I am not sure what to think yet. I will continue to ride this bike and try to get used to the style, but if no substantial progress is nade in the coming month I may consider going back to the two smoke. Any tips for transitioning to the 426??? Also does anyone in here use the DSP Ti system??? Is it as good as the price would imply?? Does anyone have any parts for sale??
