    any trick to startin the 426??

    Had the same problem with mine at first very frustrating but youll get it, Rule of thumb NO THROTTLE also 90% of the time even on first start of the day the hot start will work better than the choke, every time you stahll it or dump it use the hot start dont bother kicking with out it. As in for starting roll the kick starter till its tight pull the de comp- lever move the kick starter an inch or so, let go of the de-comp lever and give her a good kick... my wifes just started ridding and she can start mine now...just got to get the feel for it... dont give up youll love the bike...
  2. Sounds to me like your stahling problems and your running hot problems are all caused by running LEAN turn that air fuel screw OUT a 1/4 turn....

    under water yz 426

    Me personally id buy it as long as it wasnt running you know it diddnt bend a rod. Pull the exaust make sure its dry drain the oil clean the carb, pull the plug out and turn it over several times to clear the cylinder, youll be good to go.. I would change the oil again after each ride for the first couple just to make sure you got all the condesation out, me personally would be happy it drowned sounds like a thousand dollars or so cheaper for an hours worth of work...But the choice is yours...

    01 YZ 426 Stalls while jumping

    If that dosent do it back the fuel screw out a 1/4 turn, ive also noticed on my o1 that if your spark plug comes loose just a little bit it will stahl like that i rode mine for 2 1/2 weeks with a loose plug fighting stahlling issues I re jetted and everything all over a loose plug..might be something to check...

    426 stalling in the turns.

    Back your air/fuel screw out a 1/4 turn sounds like your running lean, also if your much further than 2 turns out now change your pilot jet, hope it helps...

    01 426; do I need the 450 cam mod?

    I have an o1 426 and was going to do the cam mod but to be honest with you im glad i diddnt ive heard of to many problems with the timing issues and reliability afterwards. I have done a lot of checking though, and a YAMAHA 450 cam will just do away with the commpresion release they say if your gonna do it use a HOT CAMS so you at least gain performance, as in for starting belive it or not once you get the procedure down for your bike not just the 426 but your bike they all start different they are one of the easyiest starting four strokes in the world. no throttle and only use the hot start if you stall it and dont go to far past TDC when kicking it over.

    Mobile 1 vs. Yamalube 4

    me personaly I would use a good quality oil of wich is available to you, I too had the problem of wall mart being my only choice we recently have gotten a yamaha dealer in the town i live in, but it really sucks to drive a hundred miles to the nearest city wich in my case is SLC UT.. to get oil.. Just do not use a regular automotive oil... In most places u can also get BEL RAY wich is not bad oil Either,
