Buddy's crf 230

Recommended Posts

I've got a buddy that has a crf 230. He put a BBR full exhaust system on it. It seems realy cold blooded to me. My bike starts right up and he is there almost five minutes getting the thing warmed up enough to stay running. Could this mean that it needs rejetted? I told him when he bought the pipe that he should rejet it. But the "destructions" that came with it said that regetting was not nessisary. Any help would be appreciated.

He totally needs to rejet. And he needs to take the baffle out of the air box.

post riding elevation and temps and you will have many replies about advise for what jets. I run 120/45 in Sacramento and into the foothills and slight mountains. Oh yeah, my needle is in the 4th clip down from the top.

We live and ride in NE Ohio, I think we a fairly close to see level here. 70 to 80 deg is where we do most of our riding and he has problems there too. He tried to start it the other day when It was about 50 or so and he must have worked a half an hour to get it to run, now granted it was the first time he started it since last fall.

Some guys swear by 132/45 with the power up needle, my bike runs so good with what I have done, that sounds really rich. That setting sure has its followers though.

The 120/45 is the first setup I tried & it runs great so I kept it that way.

I totally agree with rejetting and uncorking......but to be honest they are rather cold blooded......I let mine run/idle for at least 5-10 minutes while I get my stuff together so it's nice and warm when I'm ready to ride....:applause:

I think that's a good Idea but he can't leave it alone to gather his stuff he has to stand beside it and help it along

Rejetted and uncorked (well a pipe to, but was the same with stock uncorked)

I walk away and get ready. This way I have time to polish my boots and adjust my thong.:applause:
