Thread: 2013 x6 issue question

    Default 2013 x6 issue question

    hello all,

    I have a question maybe someone can shed light on. I have a 2013 cf moto x6 that just turned 500 miles on it. First let me suggest that if you are considering a cf moto please thing hard. They do not stand behind them. Our warranty papers are only good enough to start a fire. Anyways a month after purchase we had the rear brakes lock up and after several battles with the dealer I gave up trying to get them to fix it and just drained the fluid out of them.

    Now it will only run for around 30 minutes. After it sets a bit it starts right up and runs for about same amount of time. I have check the spark and have good fire. but the fuel pump is not kicking on. there is a high amount of heat that comes off of the right side. Question is has anyone else experienced this or have heard of this problem. I do not have a dealer around that will work on it except for the one that sold it to use and I will not go back to him so I am messing with it myself.

    Thanks for your time,

    Hi Capt,

    Where are you located. We have a local dealership in Fairbanks, trained mechanics throughout the SouthWest region, and Anchorage. They are independent dealerships from Alaska Power Sports but they are working on and servicing the machines including warranty work.

    You can also give our service a call and talk with them at (907)337-2744. They will be more than happy to help you and try to figure out what the next step is.

    Thanks,

    Lori Price

    You must not live in Alaska because we are the only dealership in the state. We would be more than happy to help and find a dealership or at least speak with CFMoto to see what we can do to help. If you want to message me on here, email me at lori@maritaseaandski.com, or call me at (907)337-2744, I can get your information and location. CFMoto and our company (Marita Sea & SKi/ Alaska Power Sports) stand behind our products and they have been great with warranty and anything else. Let me know if we can do anything to help. Also welcome to the forum.

    Quick update... the issue with running for a while then shutting down and restarting when it cooled off was an fuel pump that had been getting to hot to many times and started laying down. Due to the way the exhaust was run and extreme temp coming from it it was heating the tank up and the pump sets right above the hottest area. To fix this issues for now I took off the tank and laid several layers of insulation on plate and remount tank. I also had to replace fuel pump and soon I will either relocate exhaust (which you have to be careful of due to sensor) or craft heat shields to deflect the heats. Hope this might help someone else with this problem. Still working on back brakes will update that later. FYI Although the place yet that Lori Price keeps plugging ( may try to though) don't waste your time with CF MOTO I actually had a motorcycle repair help me solve it. Would not touch it but was kind enough to suggest and talk it out. Thanks Bones!

    That's because it sounds like a fire hazard !!! But then again might be the best thing that could happen to a CFMOTO you have insurance right

    One thing that is a necessity if you own a CF MOTO is full coverage insurance. Never leave home without it. As far as a fire hazard yes you are correct. Hopefully I have mitigated this with current changes and those planned in the future.

    I am thinking about changing out the muffler out on my x6 to help mitigate the extreme heat issue. Has anyone had or have experience with the stainless steel system they make for these, and if so does it help?

    I don't understand how a S.S. muffler would reduce a heat problems? A heat shield and reflector tape would help. Does it reduce back presser or move the muffler further back away from other parts? Is it possible to add pipe to get the muffler further back?

    I don't either is why I was seeking advise. I just ran across the ss. system. It is the same positioning as stock. Mine has a heat shield and tape for the area that runs along side the motor(which is the area needing help) but it doesnt seem to help. I wear knee braces and I have to be careful so it does heat the metal in up and burn my leg. Just looking for suggestions this it not a new problem for the x6 so someone must have an answer ( i hope). lol

    I'm considering taking my exhaust to Advanced Powdercoating to have it cerami-coated, they have done a couple for my sleds and they do nice work.
