    HELP yz426 coolant leak

    YOU MIGHT HAVE A BAD HEAD GASKET.YOU COULD ALSO HAVE A BAD WATER PUMP.ALSO DON'T SIT IN ONE SPOT WITH YOUR MOTOR RUNNING AFTER THE BIKE IS ALL READY WARMED UP THIS WILL CAUSE THE BIKE TO LEAK FULID.

    Radiator leaks out the overflow YZ426F

    I THINK IM GOING TO GET MY RADIATOR CAP PRESSURE TESTED BECAUSE THE BIKE JUST STARTED TO DO THIS AND I HAVE HAD THE BIKE SINCE 2001.HAS ANYONE EVER HAD A RADIATOR CAP GO BAD? IF YES WHAT MAKES THEM GO BAD?
  3. I RIDE MY 01YZ426F ALOT AND SHE HAS ALWAYS RAN GREAT..THE OTHER DAY I WAS WARMING THE MOTOR UP AT THE TRACK AND RADIATOR FLUID STARTED TO DRIP OUT OF THE OVERFLOW TUBE, AND WHEN I REVVED THE MOTOR IT POORED OUT. I RODE THE REST OF THE DAY AND THE BIKE RAN GREAT AND THE LEAK SEEMED TO STOP. THE NEXT DAY I CHECKED THE RADIATOR FLUID AND IT WAS JUST BELOW THE FINS SO I PUT SOME MORE FLUID IN AND STARTED THE BIKE AS SOON THE BIKE WARMED UP IT DID THE SAME THING. IF ANYONE HAS ANY IDEAS IT WOULD BE A BIG HELP THANKS.
  4. One of my rideing buddies just bought a brand new 04 KTM 450 SX. A dealer had one and made him a killer deal on it. Out the box the bike was lean and would back fire so he made the bike a little richer and that seemed to work. Then we took the bike trail rideing and it gets really bad gas millage I mean the bike can't go 30 miles with out running out of gas. Is this normal for a KTM 450 SX.I am a YAMAHA GUY so I don't really know.The carb does not leak gas and the bike is easy to start, unless it;s hot

    How Far Can You Go? 01 Yz426f

    I've heard alot about IMS tanks but not much about CLARKE tanks whats the diff if any.Is IMS made better or do they just cost you more for the IMS name. I think they both have the same sizes and colors.Im looking for the best quailty,how it fits the bike and how its made. 01YZ426F

    How Far Can You Go? 01 Yz426f

    My YZ426F goes further on a tank of gas then my friends YZ and CRF 450,s it also went further than my friends CR250.I still want to get a IMS tank because it's all ways nice to have a little extra gas for thoes long hare schrambles or trail rides plus you can take the IMS off and put the stock tank on for the track.

    all of a sudden it bogs 01 yz 426

    It took some fine tuneing but i got it to run right with the Q2.I just had to lean it out a little.The bike runs great now.The carb is clean, don't think i will try the BK or Jamsnow mods yet.
  9. I have a 01 yz 426 and I just put a fmf Q2 s/a on it It still runs great and still has power but not as much as it did with my R4 s/a.It would kind of bog 1/4 to3/4 gas.I went one up on the needle and backed the screw 1/2 turn to lean it out a little.It made the bike run better it still don't pull as hard as it used to.Has anyone ever had this prolbem.Is it just the added back presure or do i need to re jet it.It dose it when its warm I ride in Northern california about 2000/4000ft 60 to 75 temp.

    need help jeeting yz426 for FMFQ2

    yes it dose this when it's fully warm. Between 1/4. 3/4 throttle. I called fmf they said to raise the clip one position. I have not had a chance to try this yet, dose this sound right? I also have a white bros R4 and it runs fine with that.
  12. I just bought a new fmf Q2 for 2oo1 yz 426 Now it bogs when I give it gas..I ride in northen california and my bike is stock.

    I think the 426 feels about the same as a 450.The 450 has a little more top end.Never got to ride a 400 yet.
