CCM CXR 125 engines
« on: December 21, 2010, 19:13:35 »
Apparently made out of tin foil and toffee, bend valve, obliterated spark plug, piston and head after factory prescribed servicing and a mere 3000km.  Factory says its happening to most of the CXR125s they've sold, hence the reason they no longer sell them but wont replace my engine because I got the book stamped up at a non-authorised dealer. Oh well, 700+vat quid for the 125 or 500 for the 230, I guess mine is going to become a 230.

Sic transit gloria mundi

or just: b*gger them for doing what everyone else is doing.

Think the Italians are the last ones left who are putting their hearts into making bikes.

I wish I'd bought the same crap from ebay for £700 and I wouldn't be smarting quite as much now.  This thing was only ever meant to get me through my test but 1800 miles just doesn't cut the mustard.  I suppose I wont have to buy another bike for a while now I'm getting a larger engine.  So long as nothing else goes wrong, which to be quite honest I'm not holding my breath about since I've had the swing arm spindle head shear off within 200 miles of new, ignition coil failed last week and there's a fault with the tail light which causes it to contiuously blow about every other week (literally).  This is in 3 months of ownership.

Don't think I'll be buying one of the bigger bikes you lads have after this experience, sorry if you don't appreciate the sentiment but I'm sure you can see where I'm coming from.

Unfortunately the 125, 230 etc are all Chinese made crap , no offense meant. The CCM 644 and CCM 404 where the last proper decent bikes CCM produced, along with the rare specials like the flat trackers and old style trail bike etc.

I'm in absolute agreement about the crap part.  For the £2k I spent I could have a new suzuki, kicking myself.  So you're saying don't buy new CCM anyway?

CCM built here is OK, Chinese is the problem. Someone told me they are building a batch of R35's at the moment and they are made with decent kit.

Would anyone still be prepared to trust them?

im sure i read somewhere that providing the bike shop doing the work is qualyfied you can get work done there and it doesnt affect your waranty
it originally came up with car dealers and went to court so it might be worth digging a bit deeper

just a thought

Absolutely agree with Rich ... I hate it when manufacturers try and pull this one when its blatantly not fact.
 :rant:

As long as the bike has been serviced in accordance with the schedule then the warranty is unaffected

some reading for you then get back on the case to CCM is my advice and dont let them fob you off with big warranty talk :bigthumb: that and the fact that there is obviously an inherrant issue with the engines which appear to fail even when they are serviced by the far superior CCM dealer should indicate that the issue would happen anyway and they should be solely responsible and do the honest thing.

Had a similar issue with a new car, it was serviced by the manufacturer at first service and i wasnt happy with the advice i was given (advised that front brake pads needed replaceing when less than 40% worn) so it was serviced by a proffessional, qualified, mechanic to the manufacturers schedule and i was given that bullshit when makeing a warranty claim, soon backed down though :rant:

Same advice as Bom and Richr, So long as a reputable service engineer has done the work in accordance with the schedule and stamped the book, CCM should still be liable for any warrenty work needed
