    The Stock Bottom Bracket and Crank....

    are to put it mildly junk! As Strykar said, it is one of the first "upgrades" that should be made to the bike. In all fairness to the manufacturer though people do tend to ignore the BB and Crank on most bikes. The units used on the 4300 are old school square taper crank and BB and NEED to be checked for torque about every 3 to 4 rides or so. But the stock units are not very good no matter how you look at it. So a nice set of cranks with a Splined type BB or a good 2 piece crank/bb set up should help a bunch.

    Only problem I've had so far is one of the dust boots on the fork doesn't stay down. But I also haven't ridden very hard. Only had it off road a few times.
    I need it up, you need it down. You don't see me complaining when you leave it down.
