Power Steering
« on: August 04, 2016, 08:06:40 AM »
My Uforce 800 does not have power steering (I know what was I thinking) but I find it very to maneuver in tight spots on the trails at low speeds. Is there an aftermarket kit you can get to put on my bike to add power steering?

Someone here did to a z8. Took some fab. skills but it looked good. Do a search and you should find out more about it. Maybe they will chime in and point you in the right direction.

What Yr is it? It may always have the mounting in it. And if so just buy the kit. If not you will need to fab a basic bracket in. And order a superatv universal kit. I've installed on z8 and u8 that had not brackets. Pretty straight forward
If it has Pistons or Tits you will encounter problems.

Here is what my dealer had to say.

Hello Matt,

"I spoke with the CFMOTO  rep about the power steering  conversion for you, and we are looking at about $3-4000 to do that. You have to change shafts, ecu, wiring harness, power steering components themselves. Also many many hours of work."

Sounds like big bucks to me.

Talk to SuperATV about one of their units. It may take some small fabrication work but they may have one that will work fine and less then 800. I have one on my Brute Force and love it.

Superatv universal kit.
Photo of the U8with eps bracket and your set. It's very easy. You will only need to build bracket, superatv kit includes everything else needed.
If it has Pistons or Tits you will encounter problems.

The SuperATV kit is known as an EZ-Steer unit. My FiL added one to his Pioneer 500 and its worked flawlessly for over 2000 miles now. So much better than the EPS on his 2011 Polaris Sportsman 850 that failed 2 times inside of the chuntzy Polaris 6 month warranty timeframe. They are very well regarded, and I'd guess that no fabrication will be needed, as it comes with all hardware and a controller box. This was the route that I was going to go if I were to buy a non-EPS Zforce.

NP, Matt !! After reading about this more extensively, it does look like a bracket is needed to hold a component of the kit in place on the CF Moto. Not a big deal, but you will need to come up with something to make the upgrade work for your application. On a side note, the EZ Steer is supposedly the only one on the market that is listed as fully submersible.

On my phone so couldn't figure out how to start a new topic, but anyhow here goes.

Just crapped my pants. Luckily I had my phone on my ride tonight. An oil light started flashing on the dash. I had data so I came to this forum and searched. Oil light and found lots of posts. I shut the bike off immediately and let it cool while I looked for the forum. I checked the oil and it was full and the bike had been running very good. (freaked the Crap out of me though) I have around 480 miles on it and from what I gathered the change oil light is one of 2 oil lights. I was only 1 mile from my house and I waited until everything was cool and I checked the oil again ....still full I decided to drive it home. Am I right or wrong? Hoping I'm right.

If its the RED light on top, that's oil pressure. If it's a little oil can in the display, its the change reminder. To turn it off- while holding both buttons down, turning the key on, then release the buttons.
