crf50 in the sand pits HELP

i got a stock crf50 and i like to go to the sand pits but every where i go i get stuck in the soft sand and it impossible to go up sandy hills is it because of the stock tire or with good tires it would help or crf50 are just not made for the pits because of there small 10inch tires and i do way 160 pounds and my tires just sink and spin like crazy,,, what can i do to make my bike better in the sand pits.. thx also in the futur im going to get a 88cc big bore kit will this help alots

Get the 88cc kit, and a paddle tire. Then go for a longer swingarm and a 12/12 wheel set up.

is that my only options because i was not planning to go with a 12inch back tire and same for the paddle tire because i am still planning to do lots of trails and a bit of paved roads and i do not want to modify my swingarm...

sand is a 50's enemy. avoid if at all possible!

i can ride riverbed sand with some luck, 3rd pinned is where you gotta keep it. lean back so the front tire isnt pushing. its kinda like getting up on plane, but sand instead of water.

beach/dune sand is impossible. get a run from the beach and hit it wfo and only go a couple hundred feet. then you gotta carry it back though sand. uhh.

i hate sand

they wont go through sand for shiet in stock form. Even when totally built they are hard to ride. Just throw a huge motor in it and it should get through a little better:ride:

sand is a 50's enemy

that is my thought exactly

i guess i can say F**k... :thumbsup: alright so i guess im not gonna be so much in the sand but atleast everywhere else crf50 are a blast thx every1

why not just get a cheap rear wheel and put a paddle on it and swap it out when you go to the sand?

U need a big tire and plenty of power to ride the sand. U could put a paddle on but w/o the power to turn it you may as well forget about it. A 88 isn't enough to do it either.

your still talkin 300-400$ just to bog out.

sand :thumbsup:

yea sell your honda and get a knockoff!!

It would blow your bike away in the sand.

u can take all the air out of the back tire an ride the sand that helps

It would blow your bike away in the sand.

wow thats amazing. really. wow.:blah:

dont air down your tire without a rimlock, you will rip the tube and destroy your tire, with any hard hits your rim too.

      I have an 07 CRF70 that I have done the filter pod modificaiton by cutting the extension tube off and I have drilled a couple of holes in the end of the exaust per some instructions on a thread here at TT.
      I have recently had some problems getting the bike to idle consistently. I am wondering if I should try and rejet the bike at all or get a needle from an older carb that is adjustable. I do have a unifilter that I can put in as well with the stock pod that I cut.
      It is not that the bike wont run or start, it just seems to only idle if I turn it up significantly but as soon as I turn it down even 1/8 of a turn it dies. But the idle that I set to keep it running well is too fast as the bike will move forward if in gear and no throttle is applied.
      Any suggestions? Jetting, needle, air screw change with an older carb?

      hello guys I'm like really new to this, like extremely new but I was going to buy xr-70r from a friend and drop a Lifan 125cc engine in it (here's the link: ). Now the site says its a 4preed trans with normal gear set up (1-n-2-3-4), and manual front clutch, I'm wondering if I need to buy the clutch lever, perch, and cable then connect it all. Then secondly, what pip should I be looking for I'm not sure if the header would have to be a different style or what exactly.... please be patient with me I'm doing the best I can to learn... thanks

      Hey everyone.  Darn glad to have found this forum!
      Just bought my son a 2009 CFR70 (first bike - 8 years old) and the first thing I'm doing is scrapping the factory air box for a UNI pod filter.
      I'm looking for advice on how I can open up/modify the factory exhaust for more performance.  I heard about removing the screen and drilling some holes but have not found those posts. Any specific advice would be greatly appreciated. (Found only a couple performance aftermarket pipes that were very pricey.)
      I'm thinking after the air filter change and pipe opening the main jet size may need to be increased. It's a stock 13mm Keihin carb.  What size is recommended?  Haven't looked at the stock size yet. 
      I assume the needle is adjustable on the slide (but don't know if this would do any good or be necessary anyway) and hope there is an air mixture screw somewhere because it seems the carb could use a bit of adjustment now.  Although next to the idle screw it looks like a brass cap or plug rather than a screw. (See photo attached.)
      Thanks for any advice.  It's great to be part of this group.  Ride on!

      Hello all, reaching out to you today to get some help with a small project I am trying to do.
      I just bought a 2006 CRF50 for my 3 year old and would like to rig it up with a wireless remote kill switch for those just in case moments. I have the throttle speed screw installed and will limit it that way also but want a back up until she is proficient and I feel confident.
      Since this bike does not have electric start there is no battery. I was wondering if any one has or knows how to rig up a wireless car alarm system to work as a remote kill switch. I know I will need a 12 Volt battery on the bike which I can get. I know there is a product from 3Built that does this but the range is only 250 feet and some say it is even less than that. I was thinking of a car system since the range is usually around 1,000 feet which is overkill but I prefer overkill when it comes to this topic,
      Any DIY thoughts you might have or suggestions would be appreciated.
