1st, 2nd, 3rd sitting down no problem. 4th & 5th with a knee on the seat no problem either. Were I see a big difference then with the 400ex (because I had on before & pulled really long wheelies with it too) is that with the strait axle of the 400ex when doing long wheelies the only thing you really had to do to straining out your direction is to lean on on side or the other or play with tire pressure. The XX is another story all together, I tried a variety of things (tire pressure, play with suspension & even locked the rear suspension to give it the strait axle feeling). The only way to really pull great wheelies is to tighten the rear suspension & to keep the bike tillted forward a bit & instead of keeping the bike on the balanced point like a 400 would be great at doing, use the torque and power provided by the XX (like a sports bike) to keep it going & accelerating. I find it makes a nicer wheelie & is a lot less stressful then going in & out of the fast throttle respond provided by the XX. That's on disadvantage that the 700 has compared to the 400. But remember when the front end of the XX tends to be comming down it's a lot easier then the 400 to pull back up. An advantage that I find with the 700XX Is that when you get used to it, it pulls the baddest power wheelies I've ever made. It just acclerates so good while wheeliying that you can usually pass what ever quad you want especially 4X4's on two wheels & pass them hard!!!!!! Hope I helped you out.
