Does anyone use their YZ450 for enduro or trail riding? I keep getting comments locally that these bikes are not good for trail riding. I know the suspension needs to be softened and a bigger tank will be needed but I also hear 4 speeds are too radical for trails. To me, I like the 4 speed on the trails because I can ride almost all day in tight to moderately tight trails in 2nd gear without constantly shifting up and down.

I'm just curious about other experiences with these bikes in trail riding.
