I know a guy with an 700 HDX he added a rear seat and cage and you should see what that thing will do with 6 people in it.

I have the 700 and it performs well for my uses. I use mine primarily for trail riding and a little work at the camp and hauling supplies to my deer stands. I have mine clutched and chipped and it flings mud really well but in stock form I don't think you would be disappointed either. I don't have any seat time in the 1000 nor do I ride with any guys that have em but I do run with a lot of atv's and don't really have any trouble keeping up. mine done up the way it is gives me enough snap to have some fun but not enough to get me in to trouble.. haha

2010 700XTX Orange -- Custom snorkel, Diff. vent mod (dry cavity), Bighorn 2.0's on custom painted "blacked out" rims, HMF Swamp Series XL with turn down, /// airdam stage 5, Some EPI goodies, Dynatek FS, Chrome headlight covers, Flip out windshield. "Cooler Hauler" ... Sold for another toy but still hangin around

never enough power

my 1000 is a work horse for sure , put on heavier rear springs and got the factory 13" advertised clearance [which was a full 2 to 3" less in all reality as the was under sprung / sagging from the factory ... now bed carries a bunch of gear and no sag. .. it's hauled a heavy trailer for several hundred miles several times on long outing trips /camping n hunting .. very happy I got the extra power as my weight [now way down to 300 lbs not long ago 370] plus gear and it still goes faster than I want to run it when loaded.

Gary will probably agree the bigger the trailor the easier it backs,sometimes its a pain.
