I for one have driven a YXZ and worked on one (replacing clutch lol) 1st gear is not tall it is not super low though. It is plenty fine to trail riding. it is the clutch that has the issue. Difference lies between the clutch design .. like comparing how you drive your jeep clutch or your ferrari clutch. . Yamaha had labeled it a pure sport machine. It is fully designed for road or dune or track purpose not trails .. if you remove the clutch I do feel 1st gear would be suitable .. I do not think it would be for mud and 33 inch tires .. it all depends on how yamaha made this transmission. Is it an automatic shifting manual or an automatic .. we shall wait to see
