It looks like the Honda brand roof for the 700-2 to me.
That was what I thought but when I looked it up it said the fitment was wrong. I kind of assumed it was the computer being stupid and not me but you never know.

I was looking at the short top for my 2014 700 4 seater at the dealer today. I also fill tall feeders. I looks like it will fit over the overhead gun rack too. With a plastic tarp the rifle barrels stick out in front. The leading overhang should fix that. Question...will it stay on when on the highway? I understand the 2 seater will not fit on the 4. The Honda short top I looked at is for the 4.
No issues when trailering down the highway. Just need to ensure window is closed before getting up to speed.

I got the Honda short roof for my 700-4 today from the Honda dealer. It extends forward enough to more than cover the rifle barrels in the overhead gun rack. The butts stick out the back quite a bit but butts don't rust. They said they only stock the short one for the 4 because it will also fit the 2 seater. The 2 will not fit the 4 without cutting notches for the rear side roll bars. No tools required and they installed it in three minutes. I asked if they ever lost one trailering. They said one time with a full windshield and loaded backwards. I got to chose any color as long as it was black. I am sure it is my imagination but I thought it towed better coming home on the Interstate in gusty wind.

I'm new here. I purchased mine last year with the factory hard top and loved it.....until I added the 2" coil spacers and went to 28" tires. After installing the new goodies i increased my ground clearance to almost 17". On my way out of my shop to test it out I realized the rise of the factory top was a 1/2" taller than my standard garage door opening. Luckily another owner in the area was looking for a top and I purchased a canvas top. I still had to trim the fiberglass rods to clear the door but it works now. Moral of the story, pay attention of the height when lifting so you don't outgrow a garage, shop, or even worse your trailer. Now if your a fortunate soul who can have their cage chopped then no worries. So if anyone knows of anyone near Northwest Arkansas doing it please let me know.

What lift did you put in yours? Do Yiu notice any lack of power with the 28’s?

I had the same issue after installing my 4" portals. I could not fit in the garage afterwards. So I did a 3,5,6 cage chop and now I am same height as I was bone stock.

I did the same when I had a 700-4 with the half roof. Rarely had anyone in the back. My wife bought some canvas, straps and buckles and made a soft top that would could put on for the rare times we had someone in the back. It was good for keeping the sun off.
Could you possibly post pictures or more info on this. I have the front factory cover but trying to do something cheaper in the back for when the grandkids ride with us in east tx where it extremely hot…
