Im not saying its a bad motor, but it isnt as good as the old Zuk, or any of the other brands. Maybe it will get some upgrades soon like the 800 is getting.
Just FYI, the c-tec 600 came out in 2014.

“My buddy” how typical. How many you owned is relevant because you haven’t owned any and are talking like you have. I personally have owned two and never had a single engine issue. I beat the daylights out of them also. You can watch my YouTube videos and see for yourself how they run. I won’t tell you that “my buddy” has them and they run great. Every manufacturer is going to have some failures, it’s the way it is. But to say the 6000 ctec isn’t reliable, is ridiculous.

I love how some put words in my mouth, and cannot interpret what i said. And fuck you on my buddy shit, he rode with me every time I rode, and I just lost him to a heart attack last tuesday.If you want to believe they are the greatest 600, go ahead, i think they are all about equal. The End

Way to be an adult about this. Never said they are the greatest, just that they’re reliable as I know from first hand experience.

Sorry to hear about your friend. May he ready in peace.

There has been some piston failures in the ctec2 6000's and was in the 14'-15's for the most part. They first started seeing it in the cross country racing, on very long pull's the ECU calibration was not giving the engine enough oil on the R-XC's their for a ecu update was put out to add about 2% more oil on top end. Another reason for piston failure on the ctec2 6000/8000 is ingestion of snow into the intake, I have a 14' RR 6000 that I just picked up cheap with 1840 miles with a shattered intake skirt. The owner said his son was riding in very deep powder when it happened and after removing the hood to figure out what the problem was the engine compartment was full of snow along with the intake.


Have also seen a few new 18'-19' 8000's with broken intake skirts with snow also present in the intake's, either people are not getting the hood back on correctly or they have a poor seal from the start.

Well we could sit here all night talking about sleds and failures but the fact is, there just isn’t many from the 6000.

True but just stating what I knew and there are piston failures but not very common.
