I'm ready for a new bike and looking for a little feedback from anyone who might know. I currently ride a 2000 YZ426, mostly trails, but every once in a while I hit the MX track.
With the 426, my biggest issue is the front end push. I'm currently running a soft aggressive tire, 11 to 12 psi, with the fork tubes raised a bit. The changes have helped substantially, but the bike still is a handful in the woods due to front end push.
So, I'm considering either a new '08 YZ450, or the new KLX 450. Can anyone give me a comparison on the 426 vs the new YZ450 on the trails? Does the front end stay glued a bit better? I had a '99 KX 250 before getting the 426, and the 2-stroke stuck like glue! I was hoping the new YZ450 was a big step in this direction (as compared to the 426).
Thanks for any impressions you can provide!
