I haven't had any experience with them because I don't own a 400EX, but I have also heard from a lot of people, that the 426 is more dependable.

oh ok thats cool too, i have a 300ex 400ex and a 500 foreman es. i like to go fast but the utility wheelers are BA too. ive done a ton of ridingon them....my favorite is crossing rivers or goin across ponds, as soon as that front end goes under lean back and nail the throtle and it pops up and u can ride across on the water, i love it....im sure you knew that but i was just sayn. do u have yours snokled??

I would go with the 426 if you are a pitt rider. You know, haul it in and stay in the same area. If you are a trail rider trying to cover 50 plus miles in a day, I would keep it stock. Nice and reliable.

Sounds like good advice to me.
