Turbo crf150f

Recommended Posts

It was brought up a long time ago but i was wondering if anyone has done it or see any problems with doing it. I found a small enough turbo and the tubing wouldnt be hard to run.

what carb are you going to use? you cant use a stock carb on it as the intake presure is to high. do you have any way of running oil lines to the turbo?

i dont know crf's comp. ratios but like most 4 stroke dirtbikes it is much to high to run boost and you will need to do head work to lower your compretion ratio.

what size is this turbo?

the compression could be fixed with a head shim. not sure on oil lines. and do you have any ideas for a carb? ill get a link to one of the turbo options tonight. btw this isnt just an idea i really want to do it. so if you have any solutions that would be great.

When I was toying with the idea of EFI on a 230, I came across a guy with a fuel injected turbo pitbike.

It's possible. Just keep at it and don't let any nay-sayers get in your way. I want to see it done!:thumbsup:

ITS A COOL IDEA. BUT A WAST OF TIME IN MY OPINION. but shit, what do i know.

as for the comp fix of just shiming the head. if you want it done right, get the head machined for lower compretion. shimming is..alright..but not the proper way of doing it.

i have no ideas for the card for bikes this small. id assume building a presure box for the carb would be your best bet, but at the same time would prove to be really, really difficalt.

as for oil to the turbo, i have no idea how the 150 flows oil so i cant offer any input there.

a turbo 150f? lmao sorry

If you want bigger bang for your buck, go buy a big bore kit and make it a 230. Turbo is a retarded idea, especially on a wimpy 150 let alone trail bike. Just my opinion anyway.

I agree with this guy. Not to put a damper on what you are trying to do but you need to figure out what you want to accomplish here. If you doubled the horsepower on the 150, you would still have less power then a 150r and it is going to cost a fortune to do what you want to do and make it reliable.

Seems like it would be a challenge and very costly but sometimes that isn't the point. Good luck!

Exactly. You would gain a ton of knowledge from doing it, and you'd have the most unique CRF150F out there.

The Wright brothers didn't go "ahhh what a waste of time" when they found that their first Wright Flyer was only capable of flying for a few seconds.

True a 150r may be more powerful, but some people like to do "projects" just to see if it would work. Be careful, the stock components (crankshaft, clutch, ext.) wernt made with turbos in mind, might want to beef those part up. Although hard, I think it's possible. But I think it would have really bad lag. With a 150f you already have to roll on the gas due to lack of an accelerator pump, combined with turbos rep for lag and it doesn't look good.

      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
