    The (your) clutch system is non-electronic, solely hydraulic , with or without the CDV

    Turns out it was either the by lead or coil that caused the bike to cut out. I shouldn't have to deal with this crap on a 8 month old bike.

    I think I'll have to cut my losses and get rid of it asap

    Surely this has a warranty ?

    Besides if this is/was brand new when you bought, you should throw consumer rights act at them - ‘not fit for the purpose’ etc

    Have they attempted a repair already for the same fault ?

    Anyway Chuck it back at the retailer, and also throw an email at the manufacturer.

    I'm in Ireland but the consumer laws are pretty similar. I was brand new when I bought it and it keeps having different faults, I've had to get it towed in twice.

    I'll definitely be having a fight with them when I go in to collect it to get the most money back

    Oh dear sorry mate. Chinese bikes can be a hit and miss I gather, some are perfectly fine. I just hope they will cover it in warranty.

    From memory years ago some H T leads were plastic strands with graphite coating . In use the graphite used to breakdown and cutout. Changing to copper core fixed. Guess trying to save costs , poor decision. Could be the prob. But , as you say , when no confidence it becomes a liability. Agree , get rid asap. Sorry to hear anyway, Is it common with the model btw

    All my research before I bought the bike only shows minor issues so I think I might have got a Monday morning bike.

    It's putting me in a pretty crap position I'll probably have to buy a 20 year old bike instead

    Or... having replaced the dodgy bits you’ll have a good bike.

    Many say an older jap bike is a better package than a new Chinese one. Sure you could afford a ybr or something?
