Considering CForce 800, any advise?
« on: March 06, 2016, 08:36:55 PM »
Hi all,

Thank you for having me on your forums. I am considering a new Cforce 800 and am doing some research. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to share with me what you like and dislike about them? I currently own an '06 Yamaha Grizzly 660 and an '08 Suzuki King Quad 750. I would be trading my Grizzly for the CForce. Anyone else out there go from Yamaha to CFMoto?

I'm also curious if anyone is willing to share with me what their prices was out the door. Can I expect the dealer to sell them for much below MSRP? Also to the people who have owned them a couple of years are there any things that I should be aware of or weak points of the machine? Any things I should replace right out of the gate?

Thanks you all in advance,
David

I have had mine now for 2 years and love it. The only issue I have had was a speed sensor. I would highly recommend these machines. I have 2000 Klm on mine.

They are great machines and built like a brick poop house. That aluminum skid plates on the A-Arms are a nice touch, and coming standard with EPS, winch, and aluminum wheels, you just cant beat the price plus value. The 800 v-twin is a great engine, and if you really want to get nuts, there are some clutch options available, including wet clutch deletes, that will make that thing even more of a powerhouse.

Awesome, it's great to hear some positive feedback and also to see that there is an active community for the brand. I participate in Grizzly Central for my Yamaha, they've helped me completely rebuild that thing. I was looking through the service manual and it is written really well too, I was worried it would be a poor Chinese to English translation but was delighted to find that it wasn't :)

I found a great deal on a new 2014, is there enough change between the '14 and '16 to spend $4,000 more on a 2016? I did find some old complaints about warranty service being slow, but it sounds like CFMoto was come around on this, how was your experience getting the speed sensor replaced? Was it in warranty were the parts available?

Can you guys recommend a parts provider online, or does it all have to go through the dealer?

Thanks again for your quick feedback,

David

In Canada the 2014 is called the terralander 800 and comes with power steering and Elka shocks.  The 2016 does not have the Elka Shocks. This is the only difference I see between the 14 and 16. So if I am correct you can save $4000 and get more. When I got my speed sensor repaired I only had to wait 2 days for the parts. My dealer is great to deal with. I would jump on the 2014 for that price difference.

Thank you guys for your help. I've decided to go ahead and pull the trigger on picking one up. I'm hoping it should be here by the middle of next week. I've got to ship it from out of state, but I saved enough money to make it worth it.

I'll make a new post and throw some pictures up when it arrives.

Thanks,
David

Thanks guys, I'm excited.

I got the 2014, I think the only thing it might be lacking is Power Steering, it looks like EPS was an option in the US on the 2014's and I didn't see it stated that EPS is included, do you guys know any way to tell looking at the machine or VIN? They had a blue one for sale for $900 more, I wonder if that one has EPS?.

I picked it up for about $6,000 total: $5,142.29 base, $199 freight, $199 prep $100 doc fee. Then it cost $380 to get it shipped from GA to VT. Best price I could get one a new machine was $9,600 OTD
