Jumping a crf 150

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if any body raced a 150. And if you dont race what do the do when you jump the beast.To make it easy i need help jumping.

They do race them. They weigh a lot so the suspension needs help. Heavier springs and oil in the front and heavier shock spring. Check out BBR. Most that race MX a lot have CR80 suspension on them.

BBR springs are easy, just unscrew the handle bars and slide um back a little, then unscrew the big bolts at the top of the forks and take the old ones out and slide the new ones in. At first they seem like they dont move when you ride but after a while they are perfect. As for the rear shock havent put that on yet. The CR80 suspension you just need to get the hole front end off a CR80 and mount it straight on the CRF150.

I race and jump a crf 150 i have a crf 450 and a yzf250 and both are tricked out but my crf 150 is the best of the bunch. It's not stock by any means i know you will not beleive me but it will give the 250f a run for the money.

It runs so fast that only a very long steep hill slows me down.Even the 450's have a hard time passing me up.I weigh 220 and 45 years old.My big bikes now are there for my friends to ride now. The crf is my main ride. if you know anybody that rides carlsbad raceway pratices, ask them about the Mad Racing crf150RF.They mite admit they got passed by the crf150RF. the RF stands for real fun.

sure these things can be raced and jumped but be prepared to fork over some dough to keep the bike running. depending on your size and riding skill this bike can take some punishment.... providing you time everything correctly. i run mine stock (except bars), i'm about 150lbs and 5'8. i've said this a million times... the wheels are complete cheese. i'm on my 3rd rear and just mounted my second front wheel last week. if you're gonna race these make sure you pay attention to that. won't do you much good to spend all that money on suspension if you can't keep wheels under it. i'm currently looking for a cr80 frontend for mine. still undecided on the rear but most likely will run the BBR shock. i do agree with Ttrpro1.. out of all my bikes i have the most fun on this one.

HEY AARON WENT AND CHECKED OUT YOUR WEB SIT FIRST CLASS.

MY CRF 150 HAS 03 CR85 REAR SHOCK AND FORKS AND IT IS A BOLT ON JOB BUT YOU WILL NEED ABOUT A 9.5 REAR SPRING MAYBE EVEN STIFFER AND GET THE STIFFIST FORK SPRING YOU CAN GET. FRONT WHEEL IS A TALON SET UP AND HAVE NOT REPLACED ANY RIMS AS OF YET AS YOU KNOW JUST KEEP THE SPOKES TIGHT AND LAND RIGHT AND YOU WILL BE ALLRIGHT. LIGHTEN THE FLY WHEEL AND YOU WILL GET BETTER THROTTLE RESPONDS THE BBR PISTON & CAM AND REV BOX WORKS GREAT AS WELL.PIPE WITH DIFFERANT END CAPS IS A WINNER TOO.I AM PUTTING A REAR DISC SETUP ON THIS WEEK IF I CAN GET TIME. THAT WILL DROP SOME WEIGHT OFF THE REAR WHEEL AS YOU KNOW THE REAR WHEEL IS PRETTY HEAVY. I ALSO MADE A TALL SEAT FOAM THAT ALONE IS AS GOOD AS ANY PREFORMACE MOD YOU CAN DO IF YOU ARE TALLER THAN 5'4". WELL GOT TO GET BACK TO WORK. :) <font color="yellow">

TTRPRO1- thanks for the response man. glad you liked the site. i'm still working on it so it'll come around!

a couple of questions for you if you don't mind:

1. did the cr80 frontend bolt right up? i'm assuming you have the triples, forks, barmounts, bearing, races, etc.. from the 80? or was it just forks/triples?

2. where are you getting the disc assembly for the rear. OMG you're so right about the rearwheel. It weighs a ton!

3. did you purchase a lighter flywheel or do the shaving yourself?

i haven't done alot of research on modifying this bike, obviously. however i'm considering making it a part-time racebike. i actually raced it yesterday in an enduro for the first time. i dislocated my shoulder last week and riding the 450 in that would have been a problem. i don't enjoy woods riding much anyway.. but i had a good time on the 150.... just kinda tooled around. anyway the track is where i want to make this thing fly. sounds like you've got it dialed in. :)

      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
