Recommended Posts

Kiwi, it really depends on how he rides. My brother in law and I are both lard asses. His bike is stock, mine has a number of mods. He loves his and I cannot stand it. I want him to open his bike up sooo bad. maybe he could keep up.

I would think he would want to rejet it and uncork it with an aftermarket air filter. Just a few dollars but such a world of difference. For a big guy like me it means a lil twist of the throttle pops over bumps and humps in the trail and I dont feel all of them, thats huge.

Fun bikes to be sure but really underpowered for anything but plunking around. You can ride trails very fast though, as fast as other bike really but the actual acceleration is very under whelming.

I rode 125's back in the 80's and the 230 just made me miss 2 the stroke power. Fun bike yes, but enough power, is there ever such a thing....

I have to agree with you on this , mid 80's I rode "85" cr125r and riding my 230 20 yr's later I thought the 125 had more power . But I still like my 230:thumbsup:

So what, even if you are a little bit wobbly. You will gain skills, how long have you been riding? You will be totally jammin' by the end of summer.

$1,500 for an 05'? You may be looking at $2,000+ for that bike. But I hope you get it! My dad almost bought a 230 a couple months ago but the guy wanted like $2,400 for it.

how did you know! hahahaahah. theyre in the mail. ive also got some custom graphics with pink and purple stars on them on the way!

i always did tell myself if i had another 150 id make it pink and black and make it wicked sick with a cr85 fork mod and pipe and bbk and whatnot. i think ill just settle for a pink and black crf50, which i want when i get a job...oh, that'll be a killer.
