2016 ZForce 500HO
« on: June 04, 2016, 09:52:17 AM »
Hello everyone. My Polaris 550 burst into flames and burnt flat to the ground 2 weeks ago despite the best efforts of our local fire dept. As a result we (wife and I) are looking to replace it and we are very interested in the ZForce 500HO new. Has anyone had any experience with them (or any side x side from CFMoto)? Any stories, complaints, kudoos etc would be greatly appreciated

this is whats left of the pos polaris

Welcome calvin. Well, this is a CFMoto forum so..most every one here has experience with most all CFMoto machines. I own the zForce 800 Trail and am pretty happy with it. No real issues. There are several here with the 500HOs on their ATVs with good reports. Also many with the Z500's predecessor,  the ZForce 600. There is a wealth of info here and even a post on millage and problems. Enjoy and ask away. We love to talk...lol  Oh and..sorry about your Polaris. Hope no one was hurt.

I have a z force 500.Only have about 30 miles on it so far but have had it on some pretty rough trails and mud and I am really impressed. Has a lot of power for a 500.

Wow Calvin, when I got your message I didn't realize that yours burned up. Just glad no one was hurt.  Just out of curiosity, are the Polaris 550's affected along with the 2013-2016 RZR nationwide recall? I know it was for the 133,000 900s & 1000's but was wondering if these were in the mix.
Anyway welcome to the group and hope to see ya in your new Cfmoto soon.
