I had a T700 for about 3 weeks. I dropped in the mud a couple of times. Even though it had OEM crash bars both the right panel and tank cover got broken corners. Cost $400 to replace. I also have a 701 that I was going to sell to help pay for the T700. The day I had a buyer for the 701 I decided to sell the T700 and made a little profit. The 701 has a few more horsepower and is 80 pounds lighter. Off road was no contest. Good luck with your T700.
