im feeling some undoubted frustration in this post! lol I totally agree, but I don't think honda had the best performance in mind when they built this bike. I love it to death, but it seems like with every part on it......there is so many shortcomings. drunk post.....sorry

dual exhaust ports, more power stock, aftermarket, and just plain more capabilities to make raw power......why bother designing a new head when they easily could have modified the xr to fit and make an overall more enjoyable machine

Didn't they redesign the head to make a lower seat height? Or have I got this confused with a different part of the motor?

They tweaked something on the engine to make it shorter than the XR650 to the lower seat height of the 700xx. I can't think of what it was tho.

ok, so i'm not very smart with stuff like this.... you couldnt just buy a xr650 head and put it on the 700 and it would run right? if not then how hard would it be to modify it to work?
