Exhaust fumes in the cab
« on: April 09, 2017, 07:39:25 PM »
Hey all, new to the forum and CFmoto. I'm considering buying a used 2015 uforce 800 with 5xx kilometers on it. Test drove it today and there seems to be some exhaust fumes coming up around the console/passenger seat. I'm thinking this is probably just a leaking exhaust gasket, has anybody here had or seen this issue? Any feedback would be appreciated. I also noticed that its very hard to feather the gas, it just seems to go or no go. I have never driven one before so not sure if that's normal.

I don't have any experience with the UForce but I do know they have had some issues with the springs on their exhaust flanges allowing the flanges to become in-set and leaking...and there is one pretty close behind the seats. As for clutching, they have a wet clutch setup and seems all are a little different depending on the spring reload and condition. Some...that have has a spring or two break tend to engage very quickly and even not disengage completely at idle. Anyway its clutch-related usually.

Springs are weak on the exhaust,  mine started leaking at 100 miles.  Your foot will get used to being able to work the gas with reasonable control.

I plan to use it around the yard, plowing snow, utility work, but I will also be doing some trail and sand dune riding. Hence the reason I'm on the fence. I know the zforce will be better for the fun stuff!

If you plan on having fun with it I would go Zforce. It can plow and do anything the Uforce can do just has less cargo room, but that can be fixed with a tow behind trailer. I would just clock the secondary right away.

Well I took the plunge and picked up a 2014 800 Tracker. Can't wait to test her out!
