CR Suspension on the CRF230?

Recommended Posts

Has anybody put a cr suspension on the crf230? If yes, How well did it fit? Did you have to weld anything or sometihng like that? How does it ride?

I could see the CR85 forks on a CRF150, but the 230 has an extra 25 lbs. and bigger wheels. It's hard enough to get the forks to work on my 190 lb conversion, I can't imagine making them work right on something that weighs 238 lbs with no gas and a 190 lb rider. I would think CR125/250 forks since the bike weights are more similar or even a xr650 or something. Just get a complete frontend off ebay and make a bottom clamp.

I better clarify that I mwant to say, "Socalxr has a good point about the 230 being a pig." CR80 forks on it might need a little more homework. :) The 150 is just a baby pig.
