I have read elsewhere that the 700xx has been de-tuned for California taking away from the low end and mid range. Does anyone know if this is actually true??

Also, if true, would something like the PCiii correct the de-tuning?

The rumor is that Honda did this to meet California emission standards.

Thanks all. Thats the info I needed. I found where I read that about the 700xx. It was from a media/factory intro at Dumont Dunes in California. A small part of one media review is below...

".....
We also believe that Honda has used the programmability of the fuel injection system to de-tune TRX700 because it is a little sluggish on the bottom end and it also had a tendency to stall fairly easily at low RPMs, but sluggishness disappears at mid throttle when the 686cc engine comes alive. Honda didn’t have any comments on our findings, but we are confident that re-mapping the EFI to richen the fuel mixture will eliminate our test units low end hesitation, which was probably done to meet emission standards....."
