I feel sort of foolish that I did not change this filter when I bought the 700. 3 things swayed my decision not to change it at that time (spring of 2018).
1. This 700 appeared to have low hours. At that time I also owned a honda rancher 420 that used the exact same filter design. My rancher had 350 hours on it and had never had a filter change and it ran fine.
2. My honda dealer said the filter was $50 .
3. I did dump the fuel tank into a white bucket and did not see any trash in the fuel so I figured it was OK.
Typically when I buy a used machine I service everything before I ride it, so I know where I am at with it. Lesson learned.
