Need your impression on it and weather or not with a few mods can be as good a trail/Enduro race bike as my 99 WR400

BUT ! I would think if you added a flywheel weight, changed internal gearing to WR's (cheap, but major engine work), it would be lighter and superior to the WR. The 19" wheel is a slight disadvantage on the trail too, but the proper tire can even those odds..
Any other takers?

I have an '00 YZ 426 bone stock (except for White Bros spark arrestor) that I use solely for trail riding. I live in Kentucky and ride some pretty gnarly woods trails. The gearing is a little tall for tight trails but not unmanageable. I don't mind the stiff suspension - but it gets a little uncomfortable on long rides. The difference between my bike and my bud's '98 400 is pretty noticeable (particularly in the low and mid) I would guess the '01 would be even better
