Freewheel in neutral

Recommended Posts

Okay I know this sounds like a dumb question but should I be able to freewheel in neutral to move the Quad?

I have a CF500ES and I do not seem to be able to move it when in neutral, all the other quads I have owned allow you to freewheel if they are not in gear but as this is a new make to me and a very new bike I dont know if this is THTALS (Thats How They All Are Sir) or if I am missing something!:skeptic:

Yes I know how to change gear by activating the brake interlock to the gear change both into gear and out of neutral.

The only way to move it is to start it and engage a gear not always what you want.:aargh:

Anyone know if this is normal for CFMOTO bikes?

The quick repay is that the parking brake was seized on.

I checked the rear brake callipers but they were not the issue then I spotted a separate mechanical disk in the prop.

Rusted up and no lubrication.

Sorted.

wow, i never knew they (or any quad) had a parking brake like that ... i think you would have stumped everyone if you didnt spot the other disc ... glad you have it sorted now !!

      Hello I am new hear. I just purchased a 1998 Big Bear. It was sitting for 3yrs in storage. The guy I bought it from got the carb cleaned and it runs good. I am having problems with the neutral light. When I shift into neutral the light does not come on. If I mess with the gear shifter, I can get it to come on so I can start it. I can still pull the hand brake and start it that way. I cant find the neutral safity switch on this machine. Any suggestions would be great.

      I just bought this and the previous owner has disconnected the wires going to the cluster.
      I have found where one end has been cut. One is a sky blue and the other a green wire. I cant find where these connect to? When I ground either wire each light will come on.
      Any help would be great...

      While cruising, my 2011 750 king quad suddenly shut down. As it happened, red lights on the display flashed. Any ideas? My head lights suddenly stopped working about a week ago, if that helps. I have no power at all. Thanks

      Looking for the rectifier.  Most bikes have near magneto.  It appears the KQ has it in front.
      Can someone tell me exactly where it is? 
      Bike not charging and magneto checks out ok
