Considering a 2019 CFmoto 800 xc

Recommended Posts

I saw these at a dealer recently and they piqued my interest. I'm at the point of trading in, but nothing really excites me put there right now, especially with the prices! This bike seems like a heck of a good deal when you look at all the components on it and the base price of $8500. Wondering if anyone has any experience with this particular model that can offer any insight.

I have a 2016 that I bought new on a similar deal. I’ve had nothing but fun on it since and I traded my Can Am Outlander 800 XT for it. It’s really a sturdy bike with plenty of features. And if you look under it you can tell where they got the design. Haha it’s almost like the front half is a Polaris sportsman and the back half is an Outlander. It’s a great bike for half the dough and I got that “hey dude you get what you pay for” when I took the jump too, but you really don’t. Hahhaah. Cfmoto has been keeping them cheap in the states and taking most deals on trades cuz they wanna get em out on the trails. And I’ve been on more than a few 100+ mile trips now and it’s got great gas mileage and it’s been one of the only bikes in every group that doesn’t break down out there. (Know wood!!!!) but honestly. It’s really well made. And the locking diff is the shizzz. No complaints from me other than mine is from the year they have a foot brake for the rear and a hand brake for the front and it’s on the same side as the throttle. I’d rather thee be a hand brake on the opposite handle for front and rear like my can ams always were, but not a deal braker(See what i did there?). You get used to it. But I think they’ve fixed that in newer models. Not sure tho. c88cf05b95be7ab881817deef4b9188c.jpg

Glad to hear yours is working out well for you. They still have the hand brake on the throttle side which is opposite of my Cat so I'm sure it would take a little getting used to, but I'm guessing it's there so that you take your thumb off the throttle. To me it kinda seems like it would be a nice bike to have for a few years until I finally take the jump and get in the SXS arena.

Haha funny when I bought it I was thinking the same thing. And still do. And now I think I may actually keep it when the SXS comes. AND it may be a cfmoto SXS that I get when I get one. For all the same reasons I got this one. If actually seen a few on the trails and the guys riding them have the same general feeling about those that I do about the atv.

      So here’s a question. I have seen a few members that have recently purchased a used bike.   Also a HUGE amount of so called new members who have purchased a used bike and have come here “just here for a manual”.
      Some have been disappointed with the bikes and or knew they were getting a broken bike with some mechanical  experience thinking hey I can fix it.   So here’s my take on buying a used bike. Anyone who has followed some of mine and other members posts about what to look for when buying a used bike here’s a few pointers on what to look for. 
      1. I always check the oil and look for moisture, metal shavings and color. 
      2. Feel the compression or take a compression tester with you. 
      3. Check for spark (if the bikes not running)
      4. Take a small jumper pack to verify that the starter cycle works and the bike cranks.
      5. Look for bent or cracked frame/welding that was done on the frame from maybe a wreck.
      5. Mismatch plastics by looking under neath.  
      7. Bolts on the engine/frame that look like they are stripped from someone taking the bike apart. 
      8. Any kind of scilicone or gasket adhesive that was used on a cover plate or engine seem where the engine was taken apart.  
      9. Patches on the exhaust pipes with sheet metal or jb weld patch material.  
      10. Wiring messes on the harness like bundles of tape where the harness was opened up and taped up  for an after market device or just plain butchered up.  
      11. Put the bike in gear (running or not) and roll the bike back and forth to see that the gears work and you feel resistance like the engine is trying to spin while pushing it forward as if you were push starting it   
      12. I keep a vin# decoder website on my phone as a favorite to double check the year of the bike .
      All though nothing is fool proof these tips will help you along while buying a used bike. Not only that but  it will help you negotiate a fair price for a bike that may have one of the above problems.  
      I have minimized this entire process down to about 15 mins. I buy all the time so I don’t expect you to do the same or have a compression tester etc but use some of these tips when buying and go into the purchase with confidence! 
      I would like to hear anyone else that has any input on buying a bike and what to  look for!

      Take a look at this. I just ordered it. Wondering what your thoughts are ? I mainly like to get my bikes up In the air so I’m not killing my back any more.  I either build up some stuff I have laying around etc but this looks like it’s going to work out well.

      as many might know, the years previous, California had drought conditions that allowed "bark beetles" to basically kill many evergreen trees.
      here's an example of what they did:
