Just thought I would start a poll on this topic manly because I'm not a fan of belt drives. Just want to know which you prefer.

I don't own one but I would like the luxury of not shifting but then at the same time on hills I like to be in control of the gears. So I voted Honda's auto.

I'm just an old footshift junky. Thumb shifts to! Also a question if autos are in the perfect gear all the time, then why have a low range?

They say it's the perfect gear, but come on. How many times have you had a manual shifting quad at max rev climbing like a bat out of hell? An auto won't do that.

This is true, i voted 5-speed, but i really wish that one of the companies would go back to a 6-speed, there's a few models like the 350 Raptor and TTR-230 that have it, and a bunch of the KTM bikes, but i wish it was more popular, IMO it gives you a better ride, just because you have a gear for every situation, though they may rap out a bit quicker, and 5-speeds are plenty, i just like the feel of them.

I've only riden on the automatic's, so far no complaints at all about them from the buddy's and family that have them too. As for the low speed, my Polaris manual says to use low gear when pulling loads or when driving slow speeds... less wear on the drive belt.

      Hi All,
      I live in Minnesota and bought a 2016 CFORCE 500 HO. I am in hope to see if there is anyone in the US that is experiencing this sudden drop off in RPM below 4000 RPM. I have uploaded some videos of my issue on YouTube. I will list three of the four I posted. The fourth can be found on my channel but it is a comparison between my Polaris 570 and my CFORCE 500.
      I quit on my first dealer because we just did not mix well together. I brought it to another CFMOTO dealer that just became a CFMOTO dealer in January 2016. They are in a large ranch and agriculture area in a neighboring state that is pretty close to where I live. They have close to every brand available. They are a much larger dealer than the first one I bought the unit from.
      I brought the unit three weeks ago to them and they have worked on it a good solid week and have given up on it. I have read reports from owners in Canada that the dealers there were aware of the issue and have had success in fixing the herky jerky drivability issue.
      I am picking it up tomorrow and bringing it back home. It has been to the trails of the Black Hills this year and was new in late April. 300 miles on it. It has never changed. Very hard to ride on the trails or when I herd livestock.
      Here are the links to my videos.



      I can't accept that this is normal operation. Does anyone from CFMOTO China scan these posts?
      I need help that CFMOTO USA has not provided.
      Thanks
      Kevin

      My 20005 Prarie 700 won't go over 27-31 mph and actually loses power when you give it all the throttle it has, anyone have any ideas or ever had this problem before?

      My 2005 Kawasaki Prarie 700 is not functioning as it should, has no speed, no power and backfires when slowing down, I've cleaned the carb...completely, cleaned the fuel filter, it has new spark plugs, it won't idle also and has recently become hard to start, I adjusted the idle but still no results, any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

      If youve looked at some of the factory mud machines youve noticed many have upgraded footpegs to help keep your feet firmly grounded. Rox Speed FX released universal foot pegs earlier this year for anyone. See what you think of them: REVIEW: Rox Speed FX ATV Foot Pegs - WeekendATV.com
