I've come close to draggin' mine a few times. My biggest fear is damaging the subframe.

I've got that DG rack on my quad and it scares me. I still wheelie and so far it hasn't got me, but it could be painful. This is the rack that came on my quad, but I am thinking about buying a different kind without sharp corners. (also please forgive the pictures of my 660 in the 700 section, just wanted to show DG's product)

Just be careful not to scrape. I had a six pack rack on my 660, and I went through 3 subframes because of it. The nutserts in the subframe liked to break off the weld and spin. It was mostly from doing wheelies and dragging, or having a cooler strapped down on it while I'm riding, with all the bumps and jumps I did it just couldn't hang. I'm not sure about the 700's subframes and how strong they are though.... but I'm not taking a chance after all the frames I went through on my 660

I removed mine due to one fact alone... I did not like the fact that I bought it from PRM and their site said that it was designed as a high profile rack and it did not hide the tail light... WRONG it did!

Many of my riding peeps ride close and if they can not see my brake light, well you know... bang!

i would imagine that the subframe could handle the extra weight...i dont really get too much air on my bike so i dont think I would break the sub frame from that...maybe if i would wheelie and scrape it might damage the sub frame...i know some of the 700s had problems with weak subframes...mine had a new one installed from a rollover ...its good now... ive been wheeling with it but im making sure i dont go over to far back...keeping my foot on the rear brake just to make sure...i ride rocky knarly trails so one slip and bye bye six pack rack...lol.. but the rappy sure does like to keep its toes out of the water...:):thumb::banana:
