Having had a search around, I can't see much mention of CCM's on the forum, so figured I'd start one myself.
Being a small British company, its not surprising that CCM aren't well known, even in the UK.
The bike I have is a 604e Dual Sport. It's a well spec'd bike with WP suspension front and rear, excel rims, talon hubs, brembo brakes and acerbis plastics all round (including tank). The engine is a Rotax unit with electric boot and a kick start as well (being on the left side, not easy to use!). That's the standard spec of the bikes, which later changed to a DR650 engine later on for the 644 model.
My plan is to use it in some UK Big Bike Rally events this year and also develop it into a mild adventure bike.
I figure a more comfy seat, maybe increase fuel range (CCM put the 604 into the dakar a few years ago and there's a very limited number of larger fuel tanks knocking around - finding one is the tricky bit). Maybe a Better headlight and a BMW Dakar screen will help out too.
Since these pics I've added some acerbis hand guards, heated grips (the type that stick to the handle bars then you put enduro grips over the top), replaced the side stand spring (check out that health hazard in the pics!) and fitted a rear rack (standard and very small, but the basis of a future metalwork project I reckon). I figure either some wolfman saddle bags, kriega overlander packs or maybe a giantloop coyote will go nicely on there too.
I'm also on the lookout for a second set of wheels (either trail or SM - the DS models originally came with both sets when new) so I can have a set of full on enduro tyres for the muddier times of year and rally events, and something nicer for road riding/fire breaks.
Plenty to do, but this thing cost me £1250 for what is a good bike, though a little doggy on the cosmetic side up close. They guy I bought it from is an ex CCM mechanic and the bike came with every receipt, including original purchase and all owners manuals.
I'm a happy bunny

Good luck with your new moto.
They run with a timing belt as far I know....?
What is the change interval?
The Suit:What would you condsider to be your greatest weakness?
The Suit: Honesty? I don't think honesty could be construed as a weakness.
Me: I don't give a fuck what you think.
