Sorry guys, but I may need to go a little bit to the dark side. My wife does not like her 500 at all. She tried the 07 700 Grizz and she really liked it so I think our daughter will inherit the 500 Auto and I will just have to set up the throttle accordingly. I do not want to trade the 500 in, I will take too big of a hit on it and it has less than 50 km's on it. The 500 is quite sluggish for her tastes and since she tried the power steering, it is a lot easier for her and I could see us going out for longer day rides with this other machine. Don't get me wrong, I don't think I will have anything other than a Cat but I have to give her what she wants sometimes. On a different note, does anyone know why the AC 700 has a coolant resovoir and the 500's don't? I just ordered one for our 500 and will install it this weekend. I know my buddy had issues with his last year until he put a resovoir on. At least I don't have to go to another dealer since ours has AC's, Yamaha's and Kawasaki's.
