150 versus 230

Recommended Posts

I'm curious about the power differences between the 150 and the 230.

I curently own a 150 and I primarly race it as a supermotard with a local ysr club. I've trail rode with it once and it worked out pretty well, but I'd like a little more power for the steep uphills. I'm now considering a big bore kit for the 150, or buying a 230 as a trail bike only. My concern is that there isn't much of a difference in the 150 (with a 175 big bore kit) versus a stock 230. Does anyone have any experience with both?

Thanks,

Jeff

If you compare the engine specifications you will see that there is 16+mm stroke difference. The CRF 230 has a longer stroke than a CRF450 !! There is a huge difference as far as power delivery between a 150 and 230. Even a bigbore 150 will pale in comparison to the low rpm torque the 230 pumps out.
