    426 is reasonably current. It would also make a kickass street or even tracky play toy. Having it already street legalized will take a lot of the price out of the conversion since you won't need a Baja kit.

    As I understand it the YZ also only has a 4 speed box instead of 5? Or is it 5 and 6? Either way it's one gear less and close ratio to boot. You'll need to play with the rear sprocket to find a good compromise for the gearing.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
