New to Utility type atv's (Low Speed drag)
« on: March 13, 2017, 10:16:05 AM »
I just wanted ask about the low speed thing to make sure everthing is good with our new Cforce. I been into sport quads (Raptor 700) until now with the purchase of our 2016 Cforce 500 HO, and it seems to be running well to me and nothing leaking or smoking, but are these things suppose to have a drag/drop-off feeling when I slow down or let off the throttle? When I'm at low speeds it seems to drag or jerk my head back and forth as I let off the throttle. Nothing sounds bad, but does seem to not coast as well when I let off at lower speeds, and I didn't know if thats just what an 2x4-4x4 utility atv is suppose to feel like.
Thanks and any info welcomed.

I think what you're probably feeling is the engine brake, which can actually be nice on a tricky descent.  If you're going to be running at a fairly low speed (under 15-20mph) put it in low and the drag will be much less noticeable.
I work for CFMOTO USA, hence the name.  My real name is Greg, and if you message one of the social media accounts, I'll probably be the one who answers there too.

Thats what it feels like. As if when going slow it has a light brake/drag when moving. I thought that might be it, because it feels like that, but I'll try it next time I'm riding at slower speeds to put it in low and see how it handles. Thanks for the info, because I feel thats what it is because other than that it runs great, idles great and everything seems good.

CFmotoguy is spot on the money! The CVtech engine brake is very aggressive at lower speeds, Trying to use low can improve this situation.
If you feel that you don't like the engine brake and want to coast forever. You can swap out the 1 way bearing in the primary for a full flow type.
 
If it has Pistons or Tits you will encounter problems.

Of course if you are sitting on the flat, level surface in neutral and you can't roll or push it, you might have an issue :)

I believe you guys are right and I think that engine brake is a smart tool to have when on a hill climb. I will just try using Low gear for my slow speed travel on flats. Let know of any more good info you know about these machines if you think its something worth knowing.

Good info, hahaha, I don't have that much time to sit and write.
Happy riding
