Keep the 700xx and just put a governor on it. LOL

The 400ex is a great quad, I really have nothing bad to say about it. I had one for 9 years sold it to a buddy of mine never 1 problem it still has the original battery even. they handle great ride nice and are ultra reliable, they added reverse on the 05 model and up other than that and plastics they have been pretty much unchanged over the years. I sold my Ex to get my XX because i wanted IRS and more power and I am happy with my choice but the Ex is no slouch either. I'm sure you will like it.

throttle

I'am 64 years old and I have thought about putting a screw into the throttle to keep it from opening full throttle. Put a nut to lock it with and you can set it for full or part throttle.

I'm 63 and still recovering from a stroke and for a while, I couldn't even dress myself. However, I'm doing much better and plan on racing XC this season in the SCCS.
I'd miss the power of the 700xx, but the 400ex is a good reliable quad... it's one of the reasons why Honda left it pretty much unchanged over the years.

Ive got a 700xx and 400ex, both great quads. I actually think you should ride the 700. the 400 beats me to death. 700 is like a Cadillac! just take it easy and you can ride without feeling beat up!

The 400ex is a good atv, but it will be rougher on you than the 700. The irs is smooth. And the power of the 700 is only as much as your thumb dictates. I wouldn't do it.
