SM newbie... CCM 404

Recommended Posts

was going to pick myself up another sportsbike the other week but i got intrested in the idea of a SM and it was at that point i thought why not! and im pleased to say since picking it up its been an absolute riot.

wanted the bike as a daily rider so that ruled out alot of the more focused SM's and i was pondering on the thought of a DRZ400 but the spec of the CCM was alot better in my eyes and 2nd hand prices of both of these bikes made the CCM even more desirable!

feels a bit breathless but then again ive just jumped off an RSV onto it so i wasnt expecting much. but the front wheel will go skywards off the throttle in 1st and with a dump of the clutch in 2nd. handling is absolutely superb even with a shoddy dunlop gpr80 on the rear, all my sportsbikes have been very well setup suspension wise but none have given me the feedback that this does.

my only gripe with the bike is the front brake. yes in all fairness it stops you but it gives absolutely no feedback whatsoever. looking to upgrade to at least a half decent 4 pot setup asap.

anyway heres a few pics. i also have enduro wheels + tyres but sadly no pics with them on the bike as of yet:

I love the 404 !!!

When i was searching for bike i was looking for ccm404 ds and drz400e , i picked up my drz from a client of my mechanic wich was almost new , but i still believe the 404 has way better design than drz400 !

CCM404 has the same radiator shrouds with crf450 '02-'03 models , same side panels and front mud guard with yamaha yz ( i don't remember which year...) .
