Bottom end on my '99 400 is good (with aftermarket exhaust). We were chugging up some wicked steep climbs in Moab, Utah with nary a hitch, no stalls.

Taff,
The exhaust fits great and quality is excellent. Noise is a very good compromise w/ the power. I did lose bottom end from open end exhaust to my new setup. Please note my jetting is still hosed though. Using the wrong microfiche (2000 YZ), I ordered & installed a DTM needle instead of the DVP. I do have substantial backfiring on closed throttle deceleration and have to mess with the fuel screw some more. We are knee deep in snow here and the bike is parked for the duration. Air box is installed. I still have to do the first teardown since it's installation. I am curious about the dirt infiltration through the carbon fibre. It sure looks pretty though (pretty expensive?).
