China.
What THEY say, take if for what it's worth: Their prices are low compared to the Jap brands because labor is cheaper and the entire machine is built in-house. They have no supply chain expenses like other manufacturers. Their initial business was making engines for others. Then they started building the rest of the machine to go with their own engine.

Note that during this thread and in other discussions, I've heard no one knocking their quality. Everyone who has one said it's a good machine.

a couple of general maintenance points with them. (1) if you get into deep water take the CVtech clutch cover off and drain the water.
(2) grease them,and tighten bolts often (3) replace the fuses with heavier duty or better quality than they come with.

aside from that enjoy your machine

CFMoto has really stepped up their game since 2019. Before that time frame I’d only own an 800. The few I’ve been around are beasts, the others before 2019, forget it!

That sure isn't saying much. Polaris suck when it comes to reliability and are ALWAYS rated below Japanese made ATV's.

Want a reliably machine that will last for years and years buy a Honda, Yamaha or Suzuki!

Bought a new yamaha this year, so no reports on reliability. But my 2012 arctic cat, which i still have, is at 5482 miles and nary a hiccup. Blew a belt a few hundred miles ago, but i figure thats to be expected. I just hope my yamaha is as reliable as the arctic cat has been.

So heres a question, for you or anybody on here. Guess im pretty ignorant on the subject. Ive read a lot of things about the evils of ethanol gas. Here in washington, you can get 87, 89, or 92 octane at the pumps. Ive never seen any non ethanol other than the 92 octane "premium" gas.
Now take for instance, my weedeater, chainsaw, whatever. They all say to use the 89 octane. They also say use non ethanol.
And my truck. A silverado. 5.3. The 6.2 engines say use premium. Not the 5.3.
So should i just say [bleep] it, and run the 92 octane premium non ethanol stuff in my truck, quad, and hand held gas powered devices?
Will running the rich premium stuff hurt my quad, lowly 5.3 truck, or weedeater?

Higher octane isn't 'richer'. Octane is an additive to keep the engine from knocking. If the engine doesn't knock, more octane won't do anything good or bad to the engine. It's just wasted. At higher elevations, like above 2000', you can run a couple points lower octane because lower air pressure reduces knock. Here in so. Idaho, 85 is commonly found in gas stations because 87 isn't needed.
We use 85 in the cars but non-al in all the small engines. Modern cars are designed for alcohol while most of the small engines will choke on if it sits a lot. They'll often run fine when running but when sitting, the stuff will gum them up.

I recently read an article that CF Moto has strengthened its relationship with KTM and that Chinese-built KTMs will be sold in 2023.

Octane numbers on street pumps are an average rating that the fuel should be at as a minimum. It is not an additive. Look for the fine print of (R+M)/2.
