long gone

after owning 7-8 atv`s of diff. sizes and brands, over a period of about 28 yrs., (one would run well over 90m.p.h., most in the 70m.p.h. range)I can honestly say the 700xx is the biggest bastard of them all. no wonder they only made it 2 yrs! definitely not the fastest, harder to drive up ramps than any I`ve ever owned, most jerky low speed in forward and reverse, lots of torque but motor still easily killed when needed most at low speed, especially loading w/ ramps in a pick up! 13 tooth sprocket helped a bunch, but the bike still sucked. got rid of it and made a few $ on it. I`M OUTA HERE, good day and god bless !!-------bob

Sorry you feel that way... BUT, I disagree. The 13t made all the difference in the world when it came to loading and other low speed stuff. I have a 2007 Chevy 2500 with the 8' bed (rather high) and loading up the ramps was rather a pain until I put the 13t on... then no problem at all.
With a high truck bed (not 4wd) with 7' ramps made for rather a steep angle... no problem with a 13t. There are reasons why people here like the 700xx so much, it's just sad you didn't find them.

Wow I loaded mine up with short ramps with the truck facing up hill the day I bought it with no problems and all stock.
Never dreamed it an issue lol.
Fucker likes to be revved, no doubt.

i love mine so much i bought it twice.
If you are ramp-tarded then you should just use a trailer or load from a ditch.
These quads walk up a ramp perfect. I've got a super light set of aluminum ramps and have never even spit one out.

If you don't now what you want for a quad then maybe the xx isnt for you. I wanted a sport quad that could keep up with 4x4s in mud and 450's in sand. and I got just that. This quad fulfills me.

I own an Outlaw. My friend owns a 700xx. I like both. I have ridden his 700xx and would have to say it does not lack power. With a bigger sway bar it handles every bit as good as my Outlaw. Other than picking up the back end, I don't notice the weight. The shocks could be better and the reverse rev limiter could be higher, but those are the only things that really stood out to me. Otherwise, I'm impressed enough that I would consider adding a 700xx to my list of future quads. Personally, I think Honda really screwed up by not giving the 700xx the chance or attention it deserved. In their otherwise tired and yawn-worthy product lines the 700xx was one of the most innovative and interesting atvs they produced in a long time. Now, unfortunately, Honda is cowering back into their lawyer-induced coma of boredom and it seems the only slogan that has cleared their legal department is "Honda: Ride Red (tape)". JMHO.

Maybe you were just too old to really get everything out of it? c

But seriously, it seemed like you had issues with the bike from the beginning. Maybe your bike was a previously beaten POS or something but you didn't seem to have the same experiences as everyone else who loves it. You also seemed to be wasting your time doing some pretty pointless s**t rather than what's known to work well.

Nothing can please everyone I guess

so long!!

Sorry to hear that Bob. I bought my 700xx in late 2013 and wish I had gotten one new in 08. Great machine, Honda needs to bring it back in a bad way. I have never had a more versatile bike before.
