    I want to swap a slimmer YZ tank on to my 2001 WR426. I assume this YZ400 tank will fit but want to make sure. Also, will a YZ426 seat fit on the YZ400 tank? Thanks guys!

    Fellas, I'm converting an old WR426 to SM. I will be mostly on the street/twisties and want to do 70/75 without blowing up. Any suggestions on what size front and rear sprockets I should use? ...and should I get a 4.25" or 4.5" rear wheel? A buddy has a 5" but it gets way too much...

I'm not old enough for a car licence and I use it to commute to work in sometimes -6 Celsius so I was wondering how I can add a set of heated hand grips onto it when the bike has no battery? Where can I find auxiliary power to hook these up? I...
