Nice, you bought a new or used CFMoto CForce and it has a good top speed. Nevertheless, you want to drive faster and accelerate faster. But how fast is the CForce, and what can you do to speed it up? Here’s what you need to know about this model’s top speed:
The top speed of the CFMoto CForce is electronically governed. The top speed varies, depending on the model, from 43.5 mph for the CForce 450 to 80 mph for the CForce XP 1000.
I have collected the numbers in this article from specs sheets, and from watching many YouTube videos where CForce is driven fast. You can be sure that we haven’t just collected theoretical data, but also checked how the CForce performs in practice.
Additionally, we’ll give you 6 suggestions on how to ramp up your CForce and increase the top speed, so read on!

What Is the Top Speed of a CForce 400, 450, 500, 600, 800, 1000?
These top speeds of the CForce are factory set. But if you bypass the speed limiter and tweak some things in your vehicle, you can achieve better speed and more control.

As expected, the CForce 1000 is the fasted one! CForce owners claim they can increase the top speed after some changes. For example, see the next video.
Boosting The CForce Engine.
The top speed depends on several factors, such as power, drivetrain, weight and aerodynamics. It will also depend on some external conditions such as road terrain, weather, and the road slope.
Adding accessories and ramping up your CForce will surely increase its top speed. But it will come at the cost of voiding your warranty (if you still have some warranty duration left). If your vehicle’s warranty is covered, I would advise not introducing changes to it.
Although you will be able to drive much faster after the upgrades, increased speed may cause more wear and tear to your machine, eventually needing more maintenance than usual.
By following the below steps, it is possible to enhance the power and maximum speed of your CForce. However, it is important to note that there are risks involved, and you assume them at your own discretion.
1. Tune The ECU
It is necessary to turn off the electronic speed limiter in order to bypass the speed restriction. You will have to tune the ECU to disable the speed limits.
An expert should perform the ECU tune-up because it is a complex process. Inappropriate ECU installation can cause more harm than good to your vehicle.
ECU tuneup is generally expensive, and an aftermarket ECU can cost anywhere between $350 to $550. Thus, it’s vital to consider the costs before getting an ECU tuneup.
Tuning the ECU will also have some additional benefits for your vehicle:
- Improved Fuel Economy. An ECU tuneup can help improve fuel economy by improving the performance of the engine. This can result in significant savings over time.
- Increased Horsepower. You can increase the vehicles’ horsepower by adjusting the ECU, which will result in improved acceleration and performance.
- Improved Throttle Response. ECU tuning will make the throttle respond better, making driving smoother, more comfortable, and more fun.
A clutch kit is important for getting the power and torque of a CFMoto CForce to the wheels. It is one of the most effective ways to boost the top speed of a CForce by upgrading your clutch kit.
The clutch controls the engine’s power transfer to the transmission, allowing the vehicle to shift gears and transfer power to the wheels efficiently. If your clutch is slipping, your wheels won’t be able to produce more speed.
It will be possible to take full advantage of its power and torque by replacing the stock clutch or by adding a higher-performance aftermarket model.
If the stock clutch can’t handle the extra power and torque, it can lead to premature wear and tear on the clutch, resulting in a decrease in top speed.
A clutch kit that is specifically designed for the CForce will cost around $450 to $550. A serviceman will charge at least $150 for the clutch kit replacement, depending on their location and expertise
Need to cover more distance with your CForce in less time? Simply upgrade to bigger tires. The bigger the tire size, the more top speed you can reach. It’s also worth noting that the bigger diameter your tire size has, the less acceleration you’ll have.
CForce models typically come with 30 and 32-inch tires, so there isn’t much need for upgrading (You can still upgrade them up to 35-inch). But if you own a CForce, there is definitely plenty of space for a large set of tires, as stock tires are typically 26-inch.
Upgrading to 32 or 34-inch tires can give you an extra 5 or 6 mph in top speed, which can help you cover more distance in a shorter amount of time.
A set of 4 tires will typically cost around $1000, excluding installation costs.
Make sure to consult a professional to ensure you are installing the correct tire size and that it is compatible with your model.
You might also require a new clutch kit installation, depending on your riding style or terrain. If you ride more on heavy mud, you’ll most likely need it.
4. Use Better Fuel
The performance of your CFMoto CForce is dependent on the type of fuel you use, and using the right type of fuel can help you achieve your desired top speed.
It’s important to use high-quality, unleaded gasoline with an octane rating of at least 91 AKI (R+M)/2 in North America or a RON rating of 95 in the EU.
Avoid using ethanol-based fuels like E85 and stick to fuels that contain no more than 10% ethanol.
It’s also important to use fresh gasoline because fuel can oxidize over time, lose octane, and damage your fuel system if stored improperly. Use only fresh gasoline and don’t use custom blends or “race gas”. Your high-performance CForce was not designed for lower-grade 87 octane fuels, although they can be used in an emergency.
5. Upgrade The Exhaust
In addition to using high-quality fuel, upgrading the airflow in and out of your CForce’s engine is another crucial step in increasing its top speed. This includes upgrading the exhaust system to effectively dispel the added exhaust fumes resulting from the increased airflow.
Upgrading to a high-performance exhaust system not only improves the engine’s efficiency, but also increases the sound output of your vehicle, giving it a more aggressive and sporty sound.
When upgrading your exhaust system, it’s essential to choose a system that’s specifically designed for your CFMoto CForce model and year.
6. Upgrade The Air Inlet
The air intake system of your CFMoto CForce is critical for achieving maximum power output and top speed. The air box and air filter are responsible for providing the engine with sufficient clean air to function optimally.
Upgrading the air intake system can increase the engine’s power output.
Changing your air intake system can improve airflow and make the airflow to the engine more efficient.
High-performance air filters have high flow rates and low resistance to airflow, so more air can get to the engine. If you think your stock air intake is not one of those, it’s time to upgrade it.
You can get some quality air intake kits for only $300. It’s advised to follow the manufacturer’s installation instructions carefully to avoid causing any damage to the engine or negatively impacting performance.
