    that sucks....i would try to find out the 'build date' on the bike...and make sure it hadnt been sitting in the factory or some store a long time...... meaning you want a 'fresh' bike.... you bought in Australla?

    i have had good luck with my TR650

    Dear Bezinga1,

    Welcome to MCM and sorry to hear you are having issues with the 650NK. Unlike many of us here in China, at least you have a dealer to turn to. Your bike should be fully under warranty, and should make good on any repairs.

    TR650 and 650NK share the same engine, right?

    Good luck with the warrant service, and keep us posted!

    cheers

    Yes it will be covered by the warranty so lets hope it will not take long to get back on the road.
    cheers

    Well yes, it shouldn't happen. But then if you take the gamble on saving $$$ on a Chinese bike vs Japanese, then maybe that is more of a possibility.

    Yep pissed of big time you can only imagine how pissed of 2 weeks and its in the shop, that said it was a x demo and was 5 mths old but still.
    And as far as saving $$$$$ on a chinese bike compared to a jap bike there was a $5000.00 saving on the CF compared to a bike from Japan, with 2yr's warranty I thought it was worth the risk and yes it is now in the shop for repairs I know the dealer and importer will fix it fast and get it right as they them self"s have invested a great deal of $$$$$$$$$$$ to make it work here in Australia .
    That said would I buy another cfmoto? time out for now I will see how the 650 go's and give my answer latter. "Then again I know my answer already it would be a BIG no"
    reason's there are second hand name brand motorcycle out there for the same money which have be tried and tested over time

    Maybe most of the computer hardware is manufactured in China. Nikon manufactures lenses in China. AFAIK BMW assembles Rotax engines for their Funduros in China. Quality is great. But when the quality is great it usually (maybe) involves some non Chinese companies overseeing manufacture or demanding quality.

    That is not the case with your average China bike, so don't really expect much.

    I think buying a demo bike is not a good idea, I have never came across one for sale? I personally think that demo bikes should be taken apart for evaluation by engineers to see how they hold up to abuse.


    I would not want the bike now, I would not have wanted it in the first place, it’s a demo.


    Why would they rebuild it, that’s a waste of resources you could ask what does it take for me to get a brand new bike, that you only get to ride.


    I doubt that all the bikes have bad valves, other things can cause that like the cooling system not working and or poor tuning, they may have played with the EFI settings.
