Recommending the BBR Exhaust

Recommended Posts

My dad had just bought a black bbr exhuast for his 230, and damn that thing is awsome. I was able to do wheelis in 3rd gear, and i didn't even change the jetting yet. if you're looking for exhaust i think u should consider. Its awsome :cry:

I was considering one of these as well, seem to be coming down in price a bit. Dumb questions:

1) is this a simple bolt on install, and

2) require a rejet if snorkel and baffle already out and rejetted as per stickey?

Thanks

yea.. this pipe is awesome. today was the first day i got to ride with mine. i did the pipe, freeflow airfilter kit, airbox mod, and rejetted. i used to not be able to wheelie 3rd gear unless on black top, and i was doing wheelies all day long in 1-3 in mud. its awesome, and sounds exactly like a 250f. :cry: it bolted onto my bike perfectly. it also made each gear MUCH taller. it added a ton of mid. :cry::cry::cry:

Any oipinion on the thought that a bbr gives no noticeable improvement over just uncorking mods - that if you uncorked, no difference other than sound should be perceived? One post said they thought any difference perceived was juts the placebo effect. :cry:

Gunslinger,

The BBR exhaust runs perfect with the "power-up" mods and jetting.

(120 main jet)

I dynoed this pipe on a stock 230 with power-up mods. This same test date is when I learned that the 132 main jet was on the rich side. The BBR looks good, works well, sounds great, and is not too loud. Its about the same noise level as the stock muffler with baffle removed. May get louder as packing wears out.

.6 HP gain peak, but improved over wide area of powerband. Perfect fit.

Third gear wheelies with just a pipe?

wow you must weigh 50 pounds!!!

Coeshow, I just wrapped the Header on my BBR pipe...I think she wants some more fuel!!!

gonna try a 145 main, and drop the needle one notch

We are planning on testing pipe wrap on our next dyno test session. I just received my custom grind "Extreme" cams!! They are awesome. If they work as well as they look, I'll be in heaven.

I have seen tests where the cooling affect of air on the header will affect the HP output. Obviously, the amount of loss or gain is another topic for "debate"

A good friend of mine builds some of the worlds fastest and most powerful shifter-cart engines. He has done some extensive testing in this area.

Hopefully, I can obtain some good data on Dyno day........

ive seen dynos of many pipes for a ttr125. pretty much every aftermarket pipe actually, and the only two that i thought gave good power gains were the bbr and the engines only. all of the others were only like .2 hp. i would say spend 100 more dollars, and get much more power than going cheap :cry:

umm. third gear wheelies you can do on a stock 230f, my best friend has one and he can do them easily. i have a 230f with the fmf powercore 4 pipe and i can do forth gear wheelies on dirt. shits not hard to do at all...

ohh yeah, and im 5'7" 138lbs. and i blew out my fork suspension on my 35ft table top in my back yard.. and thats landing perfectly and all. so now im thinking of buying a cr125 fork and shock and fitting it to my 230. lightening up on some parts would also help out since this thing weighs 238 empty.

I have a BBR pipe and power-up kit on my CRF230 and it run so much better .It lifts the front wheel way easier than stock.It was worth the money.

Agreed. I just put the power up kit myself. I love it. :)

      A few picks of my winter project.

      So I want to fit a Speedo to my stock Honda CRF230F, I know people have fitted the Trail Tech endurance to them but they are a bit pricey so my questions are is there another reliable Speedo or is my best choice to bite the bullet and get the Endurance? My other question is the stock stator for the CRF230F enough to power a Speedo or more specifically a trail tech endurance 2? I fully capable of installing it and splicing the wiring, my question is just can the stock bike support it? Also the Bike does not have a headlight.

      I am in the process of slowly repairing everything on my 230 that had been bought from a farmer and obviously had no love ever in its life. Anyway, as I pull off one thing, fix it, reinstall it and then ride around again, I keep coming back to it not being the most aesthetically pleasing 230 on the planet. I was wondering if anyone has suggestions for sticker kits leave 'em below.
      FYI: I would like to keep it as stock looking as possible maybe even use the sticker kits from the last couple years of motorbike.

      I hate finding awesome deals, but not able to make it happen! 
      I found a complete '05 crf150f that I would love to get for the gf and get running. He wants $400 obo. It's a 7 hour drive though. I would have no problem making the drive normally, but even if he'd take $300-350, it would still cost me about $150 in gas. I can't really justify spending the money at this point in time and that sucks balls! 
      I just had to rant for a moment

      Hey guys, 
      Just  finished my xr and wanted to share some pictures with what I done. I have read a lot of posts on suspension for the xr, so I’ll share my mods.I got a set of dnm hornet forks from my wife on my birthday. With a new front I had to do a conversion on the back-so I went with a Crf150f swing arm that got off eBay. After some machine work in a Bridgeport mill removing 5/8 off each side it fit. I removed extra 1/4 inch to allow for chain alignment so it could be shimmed. The  frame was over drilled to 14mm and had to shorten the bolt by removing the bolt head and re-weld a nut to the stud. The shock is temporary until I figure linkage or direct mount but for now it’s a 11 inch fast ace 1100 lbs with adjustable rebound. Also for ease of service I drilled and taped the swinger and shock pivots with 6mm zerks. The wheels are the stock Crf150f and installed Ebc slotted brake pads. 
      The DNM front forks were a challenge as no bearing combination would work with the 41mm race. I used a set of roller taper stock bearings and shimmed the bearing to the triple stem. Brake caliper had to be modified with a new bracket to use the 240 rotor. Also I have yet to find information to support these forks so if anyone has information on these please let me know.. 
      35inch seat height
      as for the rest of the build the motor has a engines only 120 kit with cam and slotted cam sprocket and mikuni tm24 carb. Shower head and oil pump by Daytona and alto red eagle clutch with bbr springs and a hydraulic clutch. Cdi and coil, new seals. installed a bbr  cradle with engines only aluminum front mounts. Had to remove 2mm off the engine and frame dowels to get these to work together. A new seat cover and foam with a clean up on the plastic. Let me know what you think. Thanks
