    Who has blue bike, black rims, gold hubs?

    A guy i used to ride with had it on his WR250, gold hubs, and black rims. looked bloody unreal and l wanted them also...thats wot got me into buying new wheels for my 426..I tried a few suppliers in the USA,and lot of them didnt make them..so l done the next best thing (which l thought was???) and that was chrome hubs with blue rims. l was impressed i would ahve preferred the gold hubs black rims myself...

    yz426 hotcams ex cam only?

    trust me, l had a 2003 YZ450 cam in my 2002 426, then put a hotcams exhaust cam in it, and honestly there is no difference in power...dont bother with hotcams stuff l; reckon for the 426 as its a waste of $$$

    Valves made of?

    i went from Ti valves to SS valves in my 2002 YZ426, mate the power is unreal.. actually i cant feel any difference in the power...l would recommend SS over Ti valves anyday

    YZ426 hard to start when HOT

    oh ok thanks for help you call it the pilot circuit, would you mind elaberating on that? Or any links relating to it... thanks Ash i tried starting the heap when cold and it wouldnt start. if putting another stator doesnt fix it, its out the door. l dont want the hassels of it i have spent heaps to get it right and it wont start again. i surely wouldnt be surprised if its the stator, but l wont be holding my breath over it
  10. Hi there can anyone help me here i have done a complete topend rebuild on my 426, (2002 model). l put SS valves in (thanks to TT Parts store of course , new everything including rings. new plug and new oil, checked valves 50 times (exagerated) And a new head, (long story) no leaks from valves when they were put back together I have the YZ450 exhaust cam and now using the Hotcams inlet cam also Put bike together, checked clearances everything l have gone over. Bikes starts 3rd kick when cold and runs like a purring putty tat, . But after a short run in and when its HOT l cannot start it? But has been stalling quite easily, when l turn choke off.Never ever did that b4 the rebuild The shims are 175 all around. Could it be because the head, valves are hot and of course the metal expands, that could b the cause of the hard starting? Should l change all the shims say to 180 or 185s and record clearances and see how it starts then? Any ideas are much appreciated.. thanks Ash

    Front master cylinder YZ426

    thanks for link and l done it, l had to remove master cylinder and pour fluid into the main part where the bolts goes it. quickly get it together.. and start pumping, it virtually worked straight away. all done now and thanks
  12. Hi there i own a 2002 YZ426 i had to put a new front brake line on, so l decided a braided brake line B4 l removed original line l didnt flush all the brake fluid out of master cylinder and caliper So after putting new line on and trying to bleed the brakes. Nothing would flush through the system i have pumped the brake lever so many times , and tried numerous ways to get the fluid through. Seems as though the master cylinder has a BIG air bubble?? Fluid does dribble out but extremely slowly i am using a one person brake bleeder line on the caliper also Any suggestions that may help would you mind responding and give me the tips. i have just done a top end rebuild(valves etc) and l cant even ride the bike. thanks ash
