How much will it cost to get my CRF 230 to go like this.

Recommended Posts

About as much as it would cost to make your CR500 go like a Buell.  Not possible in either case and of no point to ask.

 

By the way...  What was your your average speed and top speed in that video?

My 230 does pretty well, I have to hold it wide open and use the cluch a lot more.

 

I was talking with Terri Miller today, I am woried if I mod the motor so It will be more fun to ride like this,

Will it overheat??

 

Last sunday I was riding the snot out of it," like in the video" It seemed to be running hot. :devil:  :devil:

 

 If I mod it so I can ride it on the rear wheel more, will it get too hot?

 

All my other bikes needed mods to keep them cooler along with the H.P. mods.

My XR 680 has an XR's Only big fin head, my Cr 500 needed bigger rads.

Craig,

 

You are trying to compare apples to oranges with respect to a 230F versus your CR 500 video. Two completely different animals.

 

I have a 2003 CRF 230F that I use for trail/desert/woods riding, it's actually more fun to ride than my 450R on a track. 

 

The 230F is basically bullet proof. With proper jetting, removed exhaust baffle and air box snorkel.. the 230F runs much better and will seldom to never let you down.

 

The bike will run forever, and is a blast to ride.

 

Cheers.

Looks like a fire road that you could drive your loaded pickup on to get to the location of real trails and then unload your bikes and ride????

Am I missing something here???

Confused.....

Thank's for all the replies.

you help me realize that no amount of money could make a crf 230F a great all around bike for me.

Where I live you need to ride some fire roads to connect the best trails :lame: , this is where the 230 bores me to death. :devil:

I think it will be better to make one of my fast bikes better for slow trails.

All my CR 250 R needed was low gearing a skid plate and a fly wheel weigt and it went everywhere my 230F does now. :ride:

I just got lazy and didn'twant to kick start it. :facepalm:

 

My CRF 450 X is the one to mod next, all it needs is a fan and lower gearing. :thumbsup:

 

Single track heaven, 30 miles from the Tecate boarder. :thumbsup:

 

The next weekend I did 100 miles here in Baja on my CRF230 F  :lame:

That's when I started thinking of moding it. :naughty:

My 230F is great on this track, but not at Pala Raceway http://raceway.palatribe.com/

This is Pala Raceway, 40 minutes from my house,try to ride here once a week.

I don't think my 230 would be too much fun here.LOL.

This is about 25 minutes from my house, 20 miles or so gives you a good workout!

I can ride all my bikes here but the 230 is so easy and CHEAP!

The 230F works great here, but have to trailer it.

Bikes are like tools; each type serves an intended usage.  Lathes and mills may have overlapping uses but they have very different capabilities and purposes.  There is rarely just one answer for all needs.  If I was out in the desert, for example, I would be riding an XR600, not a CRF230.

 

In the proper context the XR200 and CRF230, when properly setup, is a hard bike to beat.  Where we ride I would not trade it for anything and I have ridden a lot of different bikes.  The same goes for the XR600.  The new 450s may be lighter and make more peak power but the XR600 has big broad flat torque and is as reliable as a rock.

 

To each his own.  God bless America for allowing us the privilege of having such vast choices available to us!
