only 2 years??

I've only seen 08 and 09 xx's and stuff for them. Why is that? Was there something wrong with them that made Honda quit making them? I have an 08 that is literally still like new other than a junk battery. So I wouldn't know of any issues because mine is hardly ridden yet. I was just curious...

The economy happened. Unfortunately, many companies have trimmed back their sport quad lines. I think Honda just suffered some bad timing by rolling out a unique style of quad right as the economy dumped.

dixon700,
There is nothing wrong with your 700XX design. It is a terrific machine and many on this forum will attest to that. As far as the "junk battery" goes I always use a "Battery Tender" after each ride and currently have 5 years on it. My Grizzly had 7 years on before needing replacement. That record speaks for itself.

I agree... A Battery Tender is well worth the small investment. My quad came with the Tender leads already attached to my battery. Dealer used Battery Tenders to keep batteries charged up on quads kept on showroom floor... They just forgot to remove them when I bought the quad.

Hey hope your feeling better, buddy. And I was just wondering if you had any pictures of how the dealer routed your battery tender leads? He's where I brought mine out.

Wasn't really saying the battery is junk battery, just that mine is junk and needs replaced. It got tired from not being used enough. I didnt think there was any big issues with the quad because it seems to be well put together and run strong. I put over 300 hard hrs on my 450r and it would still be kicking, but house fires tend to be more powerful... I wouldn't have my xx if that was the case and its a much better trail quad which is what we have around here. Neat idea with the tender. I'll have to look into one for a new battery.

dixon700,

Yea the battery tender is a must have if you ask me, especially if you don't ride much. And if your getting the same weather as us in Ohio, nobody is riding with wind chills 10-20 below zero, least no body I know.

Yea where you live the temps don't get near as cold. And you probably still ride at the least a few times a month. So a battery tender is unnecessary in your case. Here in Ohio my riding season is pretty much over from mid December to the middle of March. Hell I even have my mustang on a battery tender.
