I can't speak from experience but a buddy of mine dropped his and said it was easier than his 650. Only catch was because of the design of the mounting locations he ended up just through-bolting the cage to the mount! Just curious why are you wanting to trade for a 700? Power? EFI? Cause you got one heck of a nice machine!

I hear ya... Man 4k is a lot of miles. You've definetely used yours. Good luck with the 700. I love the idea of not having to fool with a carb. Have you test drove one? I've always wondered if there's a really noticeable difference in power?

i did test drive the new hdx...it had quite a bit more power...but if i do this im going to go with the xtx im going to find a 2012 because i want the orange in 13 they dont have it available...my biggest concerne is cutting the cage down so i can put in in my gararge.....

What did you hate about your RZR? Seem like they would be nice machines. And why not go for the 1000 over the 700?

the rzr was a nice machine, just not for me..cab is to small,no leg room, i dont like the 4x4 system ,no dif lock ,no engine break....other than that it ran great! fast handled great....just not my riding style i like the way you sit up in the cat,the rzr you sit down in;) i didnt go after the 1000 because i just dont need the power my other prowler was a 650 carb ..the 700 efi runs smoother and has more power:D

no no difflock,it all wheel drive and when it sences the rear wheels slipping .it kicks in when it feels the rear wheels spin 3/4 of a turn. they claim they dont need a difflock,i think its crap when your in the snow you can feel it pulling from one side to the other constantly.for some guys ,they like it i hated it....dont get me wrong... nice machine just not for me ive gottin used to the cat over the years
