I have to say, this new CF-Moto Z6 sure looks great. Would love to hear some feedback from some lucky owners

Check out this Z6 Video Review

This is a very nice UTV, I just checked and found the Canadian site. Here is the link: http://www.cfmoto.ca/en/snyper-600-efi_specs.html

The US site appears to be down for maintenance. These are quite a bit cheaper then Ranger RZR's. How do they compare ?

Yes, I cant get any info from the US CF-Moto site either, any of our US friends out there know whats up with that ?

what I did notice however is that the z6 is called Snyper in Canada and refered to as the Z6 Terracross in the US. There is also a sport model on the International site called CF-Moto Z6 Spec R more race tuned I guess

Maybe parts for CF-Moto are easier to get in Canada but I doubt the support is anything like that of the big players in the market.

I quit selling these machines - they have lots of problems!  Rear arm breaks off exhaust, air in-let for breather faced down to tire allowing all dirt dust to enter, constant reprogramming of ECU, no ground clearance, shocks are too small, seats wobble and do not hold up, shock arm for adjustable steering breaks after first bump you hit.  This is just to name a few problems!

As far as parts, the US does NOT have the parts needed in stock and can't seem to get them.  We had to outsource "warranty" parts for our customers out of our own pocket!!!  CF MOTO is a joke!

Hi Martin,

Thanks for the feedback, sound like you've had your share of headaches. Its too bad 'cause they sure looked good, but like with anything its whats "under the hood" that counts and if there is a huge lack of manufacturers support there is nothing even a good dealer can do.

Paying out of your own pocket ...... Now I can see why this CF-Moto Z6 is not listed on the US site anymore.

Be nice to hear from some Canadian dealers as to whats going on up here. I would imagine its the same BS

I emailed US CF-Moto to see what they have to say about the Z6 and their web-site not listing it anymore. Its been a few days and heard nothing back yet.
Their forum is also down.... Cover-up or what ?

Possibly a cover-up.  CFMOTO was a no show at the 2012 Dealer Expo this year.  When a company trying to build a name in the US backs out of the largest show in the US is a tell-tale sign that they are going UNDER!  That is pretty much the word that was circulating around the Expo.  
Another Chinese company is biting the dust in the US!

I live in southern WV and bought one of these machines December of 2011. I was assured the quality and parts availability would be on par with top brands (Polaris, Suzuki, Honda, and Kawasaki). First impression is that ergonomically the machine is a home run. Comfort and ride are competitive with the Polaris RZR. But it wasn't long before the initial thinking had worn off. The first 600 or so miles were trouble free. But on a 70+ mile ride in July the problems started. The bolts holding the steering rack and pionion were stripped out from the factory. This caused me to nearly wreck. A trail repair (thank goodness I always carry a few extra nuts and bolts in a kit) which allowed me to get home.  Also in the month of July the engine started to loose power inexplicably. On long runs it would be fine for 20- 30 minutes and gradually get weaker and weaker. Also the exhaust was getting so hot that it melted a whole in the airbox. I returned the unit to the dealership for repairs. The dealership assured me that due to the location of the whole no engine damage had resulted.  A new airbox was installed by the dealer and I picked the machine up. Not a week went by and it started to smoke profusely. Returned it to the dealer where the top end was replaced. I went to the dealership to pick up the machine but insisted I test drive the machine before taking it home. When I did the machine was so weak that it would not get beyond 40 MPH in level ground. I refused to take the machine home until it was fixed correctly. After a week went by the dealership called me and said that the CVT belt and clutches were the culprit, but the factory warranty did not cover those items. They wanted $300 labor + parts to take the engine apart and replace the cetrifugal clutch (which they stated was commonly going bad on these machines) and the belt and pulley system. I told them I was more than capable of doing the work myself ( more than 20 years experience on everything from $4,000,000 earthmoving equipment to $40 bycicles) and I would pick up my machine. I ordered a Kevlar reinforced belt from Ebay and started the tear down. It only took about 2 hours to disassemble everything, and none of it was bad! All of the parts looked like brand new. By the time I put it back together I was furious. I took it back to the dealership for the third month in a row. That is four times in the shop and not 100 miles on the machine in between trips. The last time they kept my machine for almost a month before calling me to tell me that I had failed to sign a service form and they had not even started working on my machine. I went to the dealership more infuriated than ever. They have now had my machine on and off for 6 months. I walked into the service department and demanded to talk to the mechanic personally. His defense was that they had been working on so many machines that they did not have time to diagnose mine. I asked why their where 2 other CFMoto Z6s sitting in the  "ready for pick-up" lane. He told me that the owners refused to pick those machines up because they had so many problems out of them. I went to the salesman that sold me my CFMoto and demanded that I no lonnger wanted a machine with such problems. His response was that I could trade it in on a new machine of my liking. After picking out a new machine (not a CF Moto) we started to talk numbers. He then broke it to me that my CF Moto was only worth a little over $3,000. I had just paid $8,900 for this machine less than a year ago and it had 805 miles on it. The salesmans response was that they just didn't hold their value like the proven brands did. I did trade the machine off but not at that dealership! I am now the prowd owner of a 500cc Suzuki King Quad. I never even picked the CFMOTO from the repair shop. Just drove the new quad up into the back of the truck and never looked back. A word of warning, be careful of cheap imitators. This is one case where I got what I paid for. I purchased an unproven machine from an unproven company and it cost me nearly $5,000 by the time I got a machine that I could ride without worry. Learn from my mistake as well as the 2 owners who refused to pick up their machines. Buy what has been proven. Itbis cheaper in the long run!
